There isn't much things that you can do in Feisty that you can't in edgy. It is just some of the specticulation about having better hardware software and hopefully the new kernel can pick up some of the minor errors that I have seen from an edgy installation out of the box.
Of course, I have a machine which I usually put in the latest ubuntu for trial and basically playing around with new softwares. It is just me.
I have no complain of edgy in fact. That's quite a strange psycho that when I get a stable OS and I am looking for trouble:P or I should say that I am quite confident with the ubuntu development that I have confidence in the feisty official release.
Never will I think I will have such urge from switching between XP and Vista. I rather use the 64bit XP than Vista for my new workstation.
