Leopard Part 1

So my upgrade was a success and didn’t encounter any issues.  I have since taken it upon myself to do a fresh install.  Mainly because if you know me I install a lot of crap all the time, and well I figured a new OS called for a clean slate.  I spent the last couple of hours backing up and restoring everything.   I even decided that maybe it was time I make a switch to Safari as Firefox is a tad slower on the mac.  While I am sad to see firefox go at this time I think the switch is for the best.  I also decided to steer away from Desktop Manager and make the switch to Spaces, only for the fact that spaces comes pre-installed, and I figure if it is already installed might as well use that as the overhead cant be much more than Desktop Manager.  I am sure there is a follow up post to this in the very near future once I mess around with the OS more.  I can say that the coverflow aspect in Finder is nice…. but in most cases just flashy and not as functional as you would think

Ubuntu 7.10

So I took the plunge and upgraded my Ubuntu install from 7.04 -> 7.10. And I must say that that WOW, they did it right with the new release, seems a lot smoother and everything works perfectly. I am however having issues with the upgrade to my Work computer, its probably due to the fact that everyone and there brother is installing the updates today. Guess I might have to hold out for a few before I discover the 7.10 goodness on my work computer.
