I suffered from being an early adopter this week. I upgraded to Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10) on our media center machine and quickly found out that various things are broken, some components removed, and more things broken as a result.
I downgraded to Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04), but not without much heartache. You see, I am a huge fan of Ubuntu, open source, and Linux in general. But I can’t do with having a machine without working sound.
And then there was a small issue of having a bad backup. Yup, looks like I lost some data because I thought I had a good, working backup set. I learned the hard way that sbackup, the “Simple Backup Config” and “Simple Backup Restore” available to Ubuntu, really sorta stinks in more ways than one.
