I had first installed 7.04, followed by Ubuntu Studio, and had been keeping up with all recommended upgrades and adding a few additional packages of my own choosing.

On Oct. 18, when Gutsy was made available, I felt lucky and accepted the upgrade through the Update Manager. I don't regret it. It took longer than I thought it would, required a bit more intervention from me than I expected, but other than that everything so far has worked pretty well. I did have a minor configuration problem with wi-fi but was able to resolve it easily with the gui network manager.

In the last few days I've been working with GiMP and F-Spot and other photo-related programs, but I expect to get around to some sound recording and editing soon. Right now I can't tell you how well any of the sound-editing programs are working. The way everything else is working, I would be surprised to find a problem.

For the record, I'm using a run-of-the-mill Dell Optiplex GX-150 (Pentium 3). The only additions I've made are boosting the RAM to 512mb and adding the wireless NIC.
