Mike writes "Comprehensive hands on review of Ubuntu 7.04.
If you have been following the Ubuntu releases, you probably know that Ubuntu’s previous release “Edgy Eft” was somewhat lackluster when compared to the their prior “Dapper” release. Improvements were so slight that it was often difficult to differentiate between the two releases. Well with Feisty Fawn you will notice improvements from the Ubuntu installer all the way to how restricted drivers are now installed via a simple gui app and the easy manner in which proprietary codecs are installed. Visually the default look of Ubuntu and its KDE counterpart, Kubuntu, hasn’t changed from “Edgy” but the modifications made under the hood sure has simplified Feisty Fawn."
