    Yeah I guess Rythmbox is still what I’ll use for media. I used Amarok until Amarok 2 came out, and I just plain can’t figure out how to use that one.

    I have been using Ubuntu since 8.10 version. I am not so happy with Jaunty, but I hope Karmic can work well with my intel graphic card, and yahoo video call can be supported without having to install Gyachi..

    My wishes for Karmic:

    Quick startup
    Responsive UI

    and a Samba that can act as domain server for Windows 7.
