Ubuntu 7.04

I installed the beta of Ubuntu 7.04 on VMware Player today. I am impressed about the amount of detail it has gone into cleaning up the menus, options and UI. It still is not perfect (font quality still need fixing, gnome-bluetooth is not installed, AAC is not installed when Totem is trying to install the right libs to play an mp4 file etc.), but overall it is the most cleaned-up distro available today. Ubuntu does not have all the configuration server dialogs that SuSE and Fedora have, but it’s more “desktop-y” than they are in a way. It’s more to the point somehow.
