I have installed the latest Ubuntu 10.04 on both my laptops (Acer Travelmate 4310 and HP Compaq nc6220). One installation as an upgrade and one as a brand new installation. No problems and almost only good experiences with Ubuntu 10.04.
On the other hand my good old faithfull desktop computer is giving me a hard time. I’m having great challenges with my display adapter which is a ATI Radeon 2400 HD PCI-e. It won’t work under Ubuntu 10.04: well not entirely true, it works but performance is a joke. So now I have given up using Ubuntu 10.04 and I have rolled back to Ubuntu 9.10 (not using fglrx but instead the propritary ATI driver).
I makes me a bit sad though. Ubuntu 10.04 is a LTS version and it works very well on both my laptops.
So I have two options at this point:
- Continue to use Ubuntu 9.10 and hope for a future update of Ubuntu 10.04 that will support my ATI display adapter better.
- Or go out and buy new and up to date hardware (just like the MS users do with every new version).
I think I will stick to option 1: at this time.
