Ubuntu 11.10 has been released, so far I'm liking it a lot. Installing gnome-shell was a breeze, and didn't break unity this time, and linux kernel 3.0 has my wireless drivers without me having to install them manually :) 

Oddly enough, enabling release proprietary drivers on my HD5770M broke unity and gnome-shell, and disabling them again didn't fix anything. I couldn't get post-release to enable at all. Didn't want to bother troubleshooting it so I just reinstalled heh.

Anybody else tried it? If there's already an official discussion thread let me know.

11.04 kind of was the last straw with me and I've moved to Debian for now. I'll download the ISO and try it in VirtualBox however.

I'm sorry, I don't do Unity.

;) 

Will try it in Virtualbox as well.

More interested in Lubuntu I am.

Haha, you caught me posting before breakfast.

I apologise, my brain tends not to work until I eat.

On a side note, I do prefer Fedora for GNOME.

Still feel a little torn between GNOME 2 and GNOME 3 to be honest. I like GNOME 2 because it's easy to use but GNOME 3 is so pretty. ;) 

LXDE ftw!
