New Ubuntu Rocks.

The latest upgrades to Ubuntu have included Nvidia drivers that work. X no longer crashes horribly when shutting down now. Nice shut down sequence, same as the boot sequence but reversed. loads of games. All the latest gnome software. The amazing K9copy from KDE which is effectively a striped down version of DVD Shrink for windows, which is built on top of transcode which does the work. There are so many new and interesting app that it is hard to mention them all so click here and download the latest livecd and see if you like it.

Hi all today I have mostly been making XGL and COMPIZ work on my system.

It looks absolutely fantastic. It is the first thing for a while that has put a great huge cheesy grin on my face. Playing with the desktop that spins fast than your average 3d game is great fun. Playing video footage on the corner of a box with 50 opacity just cause you can:-) I have called it everything under the sun and then I found this so if you are an Ubuntu user have a go if I can do it I am sure you can too.
