Ubuntu 8.10 - everything seems to work fine

Well, I took the plunge and did a clean install of Ubuntu 8.10. I was running 7.10 and it was very stable, I passed on 8.04 since I heard about a lot of problems. I have to admit I am happy so far. Sound, video, external video, bluetooth are all working. The new NetworkManager is excellent and works as expected. VMware workstation 6.5 is working too. I just have to get Cisco VPN working and I will be back up and working completely as before.
I would definately have folks give it a go, its been stable and has performed pretty well so far. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Cisco ASDM update - v61551

Cisco has posted an ASDM update 6.1(5)51 that is compatible with Java 1.6.0_10 (6u10). This takes care of the problem of running the newest Java but having to keep old versions around to support the older ASDM releases that required 6u7.
