[OT] Ubuntu 8.10: headaches and nothing else.

Talking about reinventing the wheel . . . I tried to install Ubuntu 8.10
on a Pentium 4, 1.7 GHz, 256 RAM and got the "black screen of death":

subsequently found out 2 things:

1. This is an all-too-common problem.

2. Ubuntu have not responded to all the piles and piles of moans
about this fact.

Now installing 8.04

But it looks as if Ubuntu has had its day; or, maybe this is a sneaky
signal that it is about to go commercial?????

A similar thing has happened with many people who have upgraded from 
8.40 to 8.10 over the internet.
