Onwards and upwards. So far I don't have too much to complain about on this upgrade. I mean, normally I would still be trying to fix graphics drivers stuff from the console at this point and nowhere near posting a meandering, semi-coherent word thing to this sorely neglected word thing database. But here I am.
Ubuntu 11.04, aka Natty Narwhal, was released on April 28th and so naturally I chose to break my perfectly functioning laptop to see what was new. That "upgrade" button really needs to read something like, "download and install new software then spend a week scouring the internet for information and trying to fix all the shit that just broke." But that's probably a little too verbose for the UX people.
