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.

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".
