    Well i have Ubuntu 6.06 (alternate install CD ) and i was not very pleased with its support for AMD(with nforce 4 mobo )
    First it dosent support 6ch sound (amaroK , XMMS , Rythmbox ) and playing DivX and Xvid was buggy .
    Azureus did not work and i could not write to NTFS partition
    ( WinXP , SATA HDD ) . So I want to know how 6.10 is changed in this respect.
    I dont want to waste 695 MB all over again .

    Dude, 6.10 is the best IMO [It is 'edgy' in its stability but hasnt shown any severe problems yet]

    What you missed doing was installing plugins and codecs properly and follow this for writing to NTFS
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009

    and for codecs, pass this
    sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-gl gstreamer0.10-plugins-base \
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse \
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse libxine-extracodecs w32codecs


    [ make sure you have added these repos before passing the above command -
    http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#How_to_add_extra_repositories ]

    For installing Azureus, see here, manual install in few easy commands,
    http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#How_to_install_P2P_BitTorrent_Client_.28Azureus.29
    Follow the alternative method, the best you can do!

    Plus, are you sure you installed java from Sun before installing Azureus ? Do it like:
    sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jre sun-java5-plugin

    All said, Edgy is the best! (6.10)

    Wait till feisty. Already a couple of people at neowin are praising the hardware detection a few more improvements. And multimedia support is one of them.
    You can download it's alpha version and run it as a live cd.

    And speaker not supporting 6 channel doesn't depend upon the media player but the sound architecture you are using most prolly alsa.

    Hmm.. Edgy is definately a LOT better than Dapper, but noone can say with confidence (except the developers ofcourse :D) whether it will detect your sound hardware properly. Only way is to test it out! If you dont want to download, post in the Distro request thread, and im sure someone would help you out!

    Lefty? I guess you mean edgy eft.
    Are you going in for a clean install or an upgrade?

    6.10 CD wont arrive cuz they are not shipping 6.10. They are shipping 6.06 only. So if you want 6.10, download it!

    Yep. No 6.10 CD and no 6.10 LTS. Download 6.10, worth every bit of it.

    No shipments, download's the only way to edgy.
    If you just wish to try the Windows programs on it, you're better off with a Dapper CD or the window program downloads then I guess.
