Me, too, from Ubuntu 6.06 32-bit (P4/1GB) to the Ubuntu 7.10 64-bit 
(Dual Core Xeon/4GB). Quite a jump. We has used that old system about 
three years now - started with SuSE 9.2, then Breezy and Dapper. And I 
will after that upgarde to the 8.04 for next three years.

Old one (once again, sorry for finnish...):

My test environment worked just fine (Gnash, USB, Sound...), new one:

Clients will be old P4 machines:

That way I can take best of both worlds - server/Xeon/64-bit and 
clients/P4/32-bit.

I will report how smooth that jump will be... it is my and ten other 
colleges daily office environment.

Best Regards Asmo Koskinen.
