Feisty Fawn and a LAN

Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) was released on April 19th, 2007. As you can probably guess, I’m running it now and it’s good. The first thing noticed is the increased boot speed, it gets faster with each version. I’m finally running 64-bit with no problems, I even have plugins running on a 32-bit firefox thanks to a guide on Ubuntu Forums.

I switched to the Listen music player after I noticed that Rhythmbox had created huge XML files to use as song info databases and it listed a large amount of files to “ignore” that weren’t even in my music directory. It looked was worse than an iTunes database to me. Listen has .db files that are small and non-intrusive. I also like that Listen has Last.fm, Wikipedia, and access to lyrics built into it, I commonly use them when I find a great song.

At the LAN Party we played some Unreal Tournament GOTY, UT2K4, Tremulous, DPBall 2, and World of Padman.
