First impressions, Maverick Meerkat

I run Ubuntu on this Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, which, in the past, has been no easy task. This morning, I backed up our data and installed Ubuntu 10.10, the Maverick Meerkat.

First impressions? Hate the font, but it's legible. On the plus side, the Meerkat seems to have a ton of minor fixes and improvements, including relatively new versions of many applications you would normally update through the Synaptic Package Manager. On the down side...? Doesn't seem to be a lot of down side.  The Software Sources dialog is hidden (probably "a feature, not a bug"); but the Sysinfo menu option doesn't work (the window closes when you select the top item), a silly glitch (belongs to Gnome?) I've also seen in Firefox, but nothing major seems to be broken — WiFi works fine, especially.

So far, so... well, uhh...


Stupid Maverick Meercat!  What have you done with my Wallpaper collection!
