    Ubuntu 8.04, Hardy Heron, is available now! That said, there's so much
    demand, the servers are a bit busy so you might want to wait a few days
    more before downloading it.

    How about YOU going on that 6 nation tour with all those stupid Ubuntu CD's
    to pass out to the people who don't know any better?

    Funny you say that. In the middle of last year, some friends asked about
    Vista. Since I hadn't yet run it myself, I said I am not sure but does not
    appear people are impressed. So I would recommend XP. They have Vista, but
    don't like it. My credibility is intact.

    If they want, going to offer Ubuntu. Shrink the partition and add it in.

    I'd say Vista, but I actually like my friends.

    GM would like that, buy 2 cars so you could drive one.

    Ubuntu 8.04, Hardy Heron, is available now! That said, there's so much
    demand (9 unsuspecting people), the servers are a bit busy so you might
    want to wait a few years more before downloading it. Here's a preview:

    But I suspect quite a few users. The download mirror I used is not well
    known, has a 1GB pipe. Was 91% used. At the speeds I was getting, and I
    have a good pipe, 10MB to myself, I would estimate 1000 downloads were
    happening. And this is only one site of many. It also does not include
    bit torrents which I suspect would have been faster. So even by a
    conservative estimate, hundreds of thousands of copies will out today.

    Ubuntu actually got glass right and fast. The current window focus is
    solid and the others are glassed. Copies files so fast....I had to run
    check sums to be sure.

    Make fun of Ubuntu and OpenOffice if you like...but they be going places.

    Some do.

    Assuming that Ubuntu is as much as half of the installed Linux base, that
    translates to about 40,000 Ubuntu users world-wide.

    That's roughly equal to members of the Coast Guard that have tattoos and
    over twice the population of Pflugerville, Texas, but nowhere near the
    citizenry of Beaumont.
