I decided to push through with an upgrade on my Lenovo T500. Overall the graphics are nice and the feel of the OS is good. I have issues with the laptop shutting down and restarting properly. I had issues with shutdown under 8.10, but not restart. There appears to be an issue with the Intel graphics; especially when I am entering text in java based editors like the one used on WordPress. Deleting text by holding down the delete key gets buffered and is slow. This is not an issue on my Nvidia based desktop. I have also noticed that email getting deleted in Evolution appears laggy as well.
My laptop has ATI graphics as well, but there is no ATI graphics option yet for Jaunty. Ack!
Why is it that when I support open source friendly hardware vendors I get burned?
I will work on trying to file some bugs or add to existing bug reports concerning my issues, but I may be headed back to 8.10 in a few days. .: sigh :.
