Wow. What a blast to the past. I’ve been downloading Kubuntu 7.10 all day. It’s been creeping along at 35-50k per second. This reminds me of downloading Windows 95 betas across dial-up. Scratch that. I think even then I had an ISDN line already. I can’t remember. That was over a decade ago.
What’s Kubuntu 7.10? It’s the KDE version of Ubuntu which just released so all of the linux folks are trying to get the released bits. I’ve downloaded 561meg of 693. I’m hoping there are two fixes in this version. The main one I want is support for the wireless chipset (Intel 4965) in my ThinkPad T61p. I’d also be happy if the NVIDIA Quadro 570m just worked.
We’ll see in a few more hours.
