I'm not a real Expert in 7.04. I have an Athalon-XP, and an Nvidia Card.
In Linux you got these Numbers of Versions. .0X means it is still a
Beta. So 6.04 was a Beta, while .10 means it has been so fixed up, it is
Stable. So 6.10 is Stable, while 7.04 is still Questionable. There may
still be things going to the bug list, for 7.04. Now some people like to
play with Beta Versions so they can find the Glitches and Bugs in that.
In 7.04 there was a bug with SATA Drives. Buy a new Drive these days and
it might not be an IDE DRive. While 6.10 did not have this Bug. 

Ask yourself, do you want to play detective, or have something that
works well? 

Works well - Put on 6.10. Detective, put on 7.04.

There are even some already playing with Ubuntu 8.?? That would be an
Alpha Version.
