Hi List

FYI, in a fit of curiosity, I downloaded Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) Beta 
the other evening and installed it on my "el Cheapo" AMD Sempron powered 

This Distro installed in 20 minutes and for the first time recognised 
all aspects of the system without any interference from me.  Previous 
Ubuntu installs required me to edit xorg.conf to get the wide screen 
display working amd also to use ndiswrapper to get the DLINK PCMCIA 
wireless thingi working.  All I had to do with Gutsy to make it a 
workable system was activate printer sharing.  Yet another step forward 
for Desktop Linux in the hands of a novice.

The whole thing seems pretty stable although I only use this device for 
quoting so it dosn't get worked very hard but I plan just to leave the 
Beta on it and use it in the real world and see what happens.

If anyone out there would like a copy, let me know and i'll get a copy 
to you

Have a great week

Ian Bardsley
