  1. Congrats and welcome aboard :)

    How are you liking it so far?
  2. I like it. But I am having alittle trouble finding an ATI 5800 driver for it. and my internet is lagging using ubuntu as well. I am downloading a driver through ubuntu now for my radeon so I will see if it works.
  3. Got my ATI driver looks great. Just trying to configure Ubuntu and get used to the interface.
  4. Your internet shouldn't be lagging using ubuntu, Linux has a really good network stack. Who's your provider? DNS could be slowing you down.

    You might need ATI Catalyst Driver version 10.1 or better, that's not recommended for everyone tho.

    By the way, Ubuntu 10.04's going to be released in a couple of weeks and Fedora 13's coming out next month. It can take a few days or weeks for the drivers to catch up.

    Good luck :)
  5. Not really sure why my pages are loading slow through firefox. Works just fine booting in windows 7 and besides files downloaded through Ubuntu are hauling butt. May just be Toms Hardware.
