I will almost certainly download it and install it on my Linux desktop. I will also set it up in a VM first to make sure that it's to my liking.

I am already testing 10.10 RC in Vmware. I might try the wubi install just to see if sound works yet with GT 220 (still a newb when it comes to linux) also the cube effect ( 3D acceleration ) will work

I'll waiting for it or Puppy to go on a flash drive here. The beta simply would not install on anything when going to look at that previously.

Definitely planning on trying it. I have been an open source fan since 2000

I will probably pop in my spare 100GB drive and dual boot.

The last one being the 10.04 wouldn't even install. This one was obviously worked on fast since the 10.04 was still in beta during the late spring!

I'll most likely see this release on VBox since Puppy will be going on a new flash drive. That will take up less space when seeing a second root partition there with the first being NTFS.

Here's one of the latest reports seen for the 10.10 release due out in a day. http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/desktop-...?tag=mncol;txt

OK so I installed it using Wubi and it works great. The boot and shutdown time is amazingly fast.

I have 10.04 running in several VMs so will create a new VM to try out 10.10. I also have 10.04 installed on a couple of different P3 machines so, if I like 10.10, I will upgrade them to the new release.

I started DLing it but my connection sucks so it will take awhile!

I'm using Linux Mint Isadora in a dual boot with W7. OSs on two seperate drives.
I believe Isadora is a LTS version. Anyone know whether I will be offered an upgrade by Mint to the 10.10 version of Ubuntu.
I chose Mint because I was told it is an easier to use version of Ubuntu and it certainly seems pretty idiot proof but I'm now thinking that I won't get this upgrade, especially as this is a LTS version.

cheers, john

Hi John, no you cant upgrade from Mint to Ubuntu. But if you wait for some time, Mint 10.10 is on the way.
