I second this. Ubuntu assumes that everyone is connected to the Internet 
and that you have access to bandwidth, especially in South Africa. I 
would also like to see a central place for checking correct third-party 
repo details and maintaining keys. Since there is exponential growth in 
the Ubuntu community (and I am coming across new ubuntu sites on a daily 
basis) it is difficult to keep up and to maintain security.

PS: I downloaded a Jaunty Beta and it doesn't look all that different. 
Still no reason to upgrade from Hardy LTS?
