Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron Installation

Downloaded Hardy Heron last night from Citylink using an Xtra Pro Plan - speeds were great - averaged around 350Kbps down.

Intsalling in Parallels now. Was nice to see an install option in the boot menu - not everyone wants to boot to a Live Desktop before they can install an OS. Live desktop can take a while even on a good machine.

Also seems to be fewer options during install, though I couldn't put my finger on anything that has been taken out.

Heard about WUBI, looks cool, will bootcamp Vista and try it out, though I have no need for it myself, but sounds like a great way to get more people using "The cheaters Linux" :-P (I say that in the most affectionate way).

I have installed Hardy successfully in Fusion. After having several problems with Parallels/Bootcamp parition booting, I have switched to Fusion

Installing Hardy in Virtual PC 07 too...

tony: Are you sure you downloaded at 350kbps? I downloaded it at around 2mbps (from CityLink, using an ihug connection)

I got a top speed of 1.2MB/sec from Citylink and I'm with Orcon. I averaged about 750-850 KB/sec.

Took a while to get it going with Virtual PC, haven't had a chance to really play with it yet but first impressions are good.
