Matt Stephens have had a closer look at the Ubuntu 6.06 beta and have a bit of criticism before telling us that he still enjoys it.
Having said all that, I really like Ubuntu; its slick, and easy to figure out. Im sufficiently hooked to go back for more. The LiveCD was impressive enough that Ill now use the bundled Espresso to create a more permanent installation which is probably the main intention of the LiveCD version anyway (i.e. to hook users into committing to something more permanent).
But it does worry me that many potential users will be put off because the initial user experience doesnt quite go the extra mile (at least not yet).
