This weekend I upgraded my machine to Gobuntu, the entirely-free-software (but see below) version of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. Since IÃ¢â¬â¢m specifically named as the use case (!) it seemed like the right thing to do. First, the good news: it all seems to be working fine. Since I was doing a clean install (again, see below), and because my laptop has an AMD Turion chip in it, I went for the 64-bit version. (Thanks to Dave Morley for taking the time to tell me whether the 64-bit version was worth it.) Everything works; no problems at all. Good work, the Gobuntu team.
