I ran Ubuntu 7.10 on my old machine with a lot of problems (printer wouldn't work, etc). I did file bug reports and after a lot of time spent, I did get everything going. But when I got my most desktop, I chose to update no farther than 7.04. I'm happy with 7.04 and wasn't with 7.10. Maybe it was just one of those things...but I am very hesitant to update again.
