I have a certain affinity for #Ubuntu. It and I-as-linux-admin came of age together. It was not my first distro, nor my last, but it has been a touchstone in my career, and in my personal computing needs.

Right now I am installing the latest release, 12.04, and I must give it up to Canonical and the community, it is a solid desktop distro that keeps improving and innovating while also maintaining many fundamentals. I know I have had my share of political gripes with many of the decisions made along the way, but at the end of the day I use it, and am satisfied with it in all the important-to-me categories.

Kudos and congratulations on a great new release.

That all being said, I am having rather a devil of a time getting my vanilla nvidia graphics card to render in 3d in this new version, but this minor heart-burn I have come to expect...
OK, it was a Nvidia bug...temporary regression of the driver fixed it...I am done for the night...
Ran these three commands at the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current=295.33-0ubuntu1~precise~xup1

Realize that the downgraded driver has a security bug in it, and when you run system update, you will need to uncheck the NVidia driver until the bug has been resolved. NVidia knows about it, evidently and are working on a patch.

Awesome! Thanks for the help, will keep the security issue and the update process in mind.
As long as Fred is ok with the less than current kernel, he isn't missing anything mind blowing.
