I managed to download, and im running it now. The leaps and bounds ubuntu is making has surely got to be scaring some driver vender's to keep up.
Currently smb for installing a networked printers has it cracked with M$ clever ploy of trying to make vista a royal pain in the arse for a linux system to connect too. But this install just flew it on with the entry of the vista machines password.
I took windows 7 off after it drove me insane doing stupid things when you moved windows about and as long as everything driver wise stays working ill be sticking with ubuntu 9.10 at work from now on. Home though will continue to be XP for gaming where linux is still struggling behind. either because of wine or because vendors arent coding for it.
