Ubuntu 7.10 Released

I was tempted to use the title, "The Eagle Has Landed". I'm very impressed with what the Ubuntu community has achieved with this latest release. I currently use 6.06 Desktop in my test lab in VMPlayer to run networking apps like Nagios and NMAP. Additionally, I had 7.04 installed on my laptop as part of a dual boot configuration and prior to that 6.06. The only problem with 6.06 and 7.04 was that no amount of tinkering would get the Broadcom wireless chipset to work on my HP ZD8000. That's all fixed with 7.10 and the restricted driver manager. I had the Broadcom wifi up and running in the advertised 3 clicks. This is the first Linux install that I've done where everything works and this time everything works out of the box.
