Anyone attempt this yet?  Feisty is supposed to have more media capabilities.. just wondering if they may conflict..
If nobody's tried this setup, I will attempt it.. :O

The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.
My other computer is your windows box.
I'm out of my mind.  Back in 5 minutes.

Do you have an nVidia based system?  One thing I really want to do is eliminate the need to run 2 X sessions.  The only reason we're doing it is because the window manager in 6.10 doesn't support compositing, nor wmctrl control.  If that's resolved in Feisty, it will make the lmce + ubuntu integration much better.

Yes, I have an GeForce 7600GT in an NVIDIA NFORCE 680SLI Mobo with an Intel Pro 2 Duo 3300(?)
This is why I'm running 64bit right now... but I have a couple of spare drives I can slap in and try mce
This mobo is perfect, it's got 2 x Gbit nics, lotsa USB2 ports, SATA RAID, etc...
