7.04 - Feisty Fawn
7.10 - Gutsy Gibbon
8.04 - Hardy Heron
8.10 - Intrepid Ibex (wtf is that?)
9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope (I swear the delevopers get high before naming these things)
9.10 - Karmic Koala
lmao I always forget Jaunty...cause I haven't used it

Yeah I think their conventions team is a bunch of stoners

I will say that I looked at the list of features in Karmic and it deeply saddened me to see them drop pidgin from the list of installed apps
List of Ubuntu releases - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Well, from what I read its suppose to be 'better' (as always?) then Jaunty, Maybe a new theme in the final product of Karmic but if not apparently it will be in 10.04 (oh god.. can only imagine the name..)

EDIT: I got 10.04's name Stoned Stingray

(my mind went blank when thinking of an animal for S)

If it ain't broke, no sense in fixing it. Ubuntu generally does 2 major releases per year so it can be a bit of a challenge to continually install, upgrade or rebuild every time something new comes out. And with longer term support available, you can just run the updates and be relatively up to date...even if the main system is one of the slightly older releases.

DNG,
If you like Fedora, you might be interested in this, in case your HDD goes down:
The new 8 gig should be perfect.

Note the "hash-check".

Booting and running an OS, like XP, off a stick is slow as ****, but it does run, if and when you need it...
Be sure to have a binary copy of your HDD MBR and Boot Sectors on it...

Not saying I like it, actually I prefer Linux Distro's that support my Wireless Adapter without me having to go around everywhere searching for a driver!

I just want to be able to install something and easily remove it. WUBI does that perfectly but only with Ubuntu (Mint4Win is Linux Mints's version of WUBI)

I'm going to assume the reason there isn't a WFBI (odd name) for Fedora is because of the way it is? I mean structure and what not?

I still have yet to find my broadcom's linux driver >.>

Here's a good look at what was seen when trying to install the 32bit not 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 on a vhd. The ubuntu desktop will simply lock up when first trying it live. Then the install on boot option ends up with another type of problem. The next to last image simply shows the failure to initialize the live cd.

End result? Not compatible for VPC! I believe I ran into this when first working with the beta VPC before where you could see Vista or 7 go right on without a hassle of any type. Yet you can multiboot on the SUN VBox without a problem there as seen with the usb flash drive loading the 64bit 7 along with a few distros. ubuntu 9.04, Knoppix 5.3.1, Puppy 4.2.1

Finally I got it to install and got the same error as pparks above. I did the fsck command and it started just fine

Why is it I'm not running into that one. The screen here shows both the 32bit 7 on vhd as well as the XP mode running at the same time. With both running they never taxed the cpu while they can run a little slower for the obvious reasons there.

Right now I have both starting up at the same time tp watch the process. I seem to be doing ok even with 2gb for ram on each one there.

What error are you talking about Night Hawk?

As far as Ubuntu 9.10 is concerned...I updated it last night just to see it go to hell and back. Now when I start it up ti says it can't mount /dev/sda1 but it will go to the logon screen where my username Chris Sanders is still present. At this point I lose my mouse but I can press enter->type password-> enter for it to logon....in which it freezes forever

Zid... do you see this as an Ubuntu problem or the VM that you are using?? I have used every version of Ubuntu from 7.04 on and have never had a problem that I couldnt resolve without a lot of hassle... just wondering....
