Alright, I just updated my blog to include my latest setup guide...which is unfortunately for Ubuntu 9.04. I never got around to writing one for 9.10. However, I setup my 9.10 box using my guide for 9.04...so 95% of it is applicable and shouldn't be much of an issue.
I'm going to wait for Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). For those who aren't aware, Ubuntu 10.04 is going to be an LTS (Long Term Support Release) meaning that you got 3 full years of support from the date of release for the desktop and 5 years for the server version.
Also, the Ubuntu 10.04 Beta 1 was just released. So, if you want to see what is coming down the pipe...give it a download (675MB) and try it out on a virtual machine. http://releases.ubuntu.com/releases/10.04/
