Ubuntu “Breezy Badger” upgrade — success!

Well, Ubuntu 5.10 ("Breezy Badger") went official yesterday, and I was proud to be a member of the horde of users clogging their network. Top download speed: 25 kB/s. Anyway, the install was a breeze: sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade was all it took. After restarting, Ubuntu asked me to do a few favors for it to complete the installation process, and I was all set. I noticed the OS is a bit flashier, a bit more stable. A number of reproducible and non-reproducible bugs have simply disappeared, and the system starts up in less time. There are a few more tools available to me that I'd been wanting (like a disk partitioner). And the default folder view has more features. All in all, I am very pleased with it.
