Ubuntu update
It's been almost 6 months since i installed Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn on my desktop, to be honest, it hasn't been an easy road running Ubuntu (had better luck with Open Suse for example) but being a diehard i decided to stick and take my chances (considering the fact that Suse/Novell sold their soul to the biggest software manufacturer)
Was is worth it? Hell yeah!! i've been able to finally run Virtual Box and test other Linuxes without having to install everything (or even insert a cd to run in live mode), bluetooth? no problem, i can access my Nokia phone without a problem, had succesfully run some of my favorite games under Wine (they've gone a long way, keep up the great work guys!!!) and i'm able to manage my entire network from my desktop (all the window-based systems are now my slaves, MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!) this is but just the iceberg's tip, Ubuntu has become an excellent distro and the growing Community offers support and help for just about any problem one can have.
I had just upgraded to latest release 8.04 and it went like a breeze, test drives will be run again soon and the results will be posted... Ubuntu rules!!!

As a personal note, yesterday was finally confirmed that we're becoming a little girl!! My wife is on her 6 month and little Emily is on her way to world domination!! :-)
