Since Jason over at ChurchoftheGeek posted a tweet about WordPress 2.7, I had to update myself. So far it seems pretty nice. I am really enjoying the new layout in the admin area. though a little more cluttered than before it seems pretty nice as they arranged everything really well.
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
I just got the copy from the friendly FedEx guy, its installing right now… Updates on this after the install.
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.
Well looks like the upgrade worked … well there does seem to be an issue with the rich text editor… I guess I will fix that at some point. I also plan on doing daily updates again, we will see how that goes.
