ITWare posted their first impressions from Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" (Alpha 6)
Most of the time, I wouldn't consider installing and testing an Alpha release of any operating system. However, having written about it recently, I just couldn't resist downloading, installing and testing it.Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex (Alpha 6): first impressions
Alpha software of any sort tends to be pretty buggy. It's basically the developers saying that they can make this work but need a bit more time and "watch this space".
Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" Alpha 6 is no exception to the buggy rule. There are a number of things that don't quite work. Saying that, it is not so bad as you might imagine, as I am writing this article quite happily from 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex".
