http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-10226746-92.html?tag=pop I haven't tried it yet. I guess the argument is that there's an intangible but obvious improvement in responsiveness in the latest Ubuntu. That is, the rust/orange "Human" interface that they use on Gnome hasn't changed much compared to the last few iterations in 2007-2008. However, the C|Net reviewers seem quite taken with the overall experience. I'll be quite curious to try it -- perhaps it's time to put it back on my Eee.
