I tried latest Xubuntu Lucid testing version in my main workstation
and it has severe hardware problems.

I tested audio and it has the same problems that I have succeeded to
avoid by choosing Xubuntu over Ubuntu before: It can control only one
of the outputs of my sound card. That is one analog output. But former
alsa mixer could handle the second analog output and even the digital
output. I belive, it is not clear to most people, if pulse-audio has
any advantages over the old system.

When comparing 9.04 and 9.10, the latter has better driver for my
nvidia graphics card. Now with Lucid, it can't even set video modes

If these remain in the final release, I would like to have them in
release notes. Actually, it would be nice to read about major
drawbacks already in the testing period.
