Good times to install Ubuntu 10.04

If, like me, you suffered from a number of stability issues when installing Ubuntu 10.04, the time to give it another go may be about now. Canonical released the first maintenance update, Ubuntu 10.04.1, just two days ago (check the official release notes HERE, which includes links to download a number of ISO images available.)

The list of updates/bug fixes is huge, which is good news, and will hopefully take care of the many annoying problems this release had (specially concerning given its LTS nature). If you are curious about whether that particular problem that was a nightmare for you is now gone, take a look at the official BUG-FIX LIST.

Having said so, if you passed on this release because you didn't like what it had to offer (count me on that group), I think it is a wiser choice to simply wait until Ubuntu 10.10, the Maverick Meerkat, goes live some day late October.

Thanks for reading!
