I gave 9.10 a try; but, wound up reinstalling 9.04.
I had a few problems with 9.10
-wireless driver did not work - I knew this and hooked up to router and downloaded driver
-had a big problem mounting a usb stick. It just freaked mounting/unmounting rapidly
-wasn't able to play m3u file though movie player. I 9.04 it searched/installed updates automaticly, in 9.10 it just gave me an error.
I wasn't expecting perfection since it,s an alphe release.. but since I'm a linux newb, I think I,ll stick with 9.04 for now.
BTW - I run the desktop version. I tried NBR on 9.10; but, I really prefer the desktop interface.
