Upgraded To Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)

My usual practice - Upgrade around 1-2 weeks before the final release of Ubuntu to avoid server congestion.

"Oddly enough, “Intrepid Ibex” feels more like a service pack to me than a new release...Don’t get me wrong, there are new features in 8.10"

Clearly, this kid doesn't know what he's talking about. He contradicting himself! There's a ton of new features in there and he's complaining? And did he say service pack? Do I smell a Windoze noob?

I fondly recall that I was happily drinking my home-made rice wine when I did the upgrade to Gutsy Gibbon. The upgrade went on just fine. This noob here opened a bottle of wine but screwed it up:
