Been using 42... uhm... 101010 since monday a week ago. Apart from a serious n00b error of not separating the /usr from a 4GB / partition (although, I got 450-something GB for /home
) I've got no problems.
My setup is a AM3 motherboard (built ATi videocard (disabled), sound, 10/100/1000MB network) nVidia 220 PCIe x16, 1*500GB EIDE, 1*1.5TB SATA, 24spin SATA DVD +-RW.
I have to say I'm highly impressed with Meerkat. Installed Wine from the repo and my two Redmond-games (UKTS and WoW) works perfectly "out of the box", the nVidia proprietory drivers are stable as anything, no flicker anywhere (AFAICS).
Only thing that annoys me, is that when I go through the software centre and don't click on "install" for a programme for two minutes or so, I have to reenter the password, even though I'm already processing other programmes to be installed.
But yeah... I like the Meerkat. I think it's a wonderful piece of an operating system. It even recognises my iPod Touch pretty much perfectly, and gtkPod now also supports my model as well. (although, I've not dared to try and sync the iPod to either RhytmBox nor gtkPod yet... I like my music and don't wanna lose it :lol)
So... apart from the annoying re-entering the password at the software centre every three minutes or so, it's good.
I'ld give it a 92% score.
It's sure to be a VERY close contender to the Redmond virus, and fresh converts (as long as they've got Wine installed) shouldn't have many problems other than the obvious "I've never done this before" things.
