If you are using a laptop, yes, it is better. Mainly due to some more driver support for wireless and bluetooth. I do not think there is any performance increase, just more hardware compatibility.

I use ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on a PC, there would be no need for me to upgrade at this time.

New widget for Image, Audio, Video, Text The most important update in this new release is introduction of Image, Video, Audio and Text widgets.
Text Widget In previous version, WordPress just use Plain Text Widget where you can add plaintext or html code. The problem with this widget is that those who are not well versed with coding found it difficult to integrate html code in it.

Windows 7 will not load drivers from Asus CD because they are not digitally signed

Get Linux (Mint 7 is AWESOME!). Easy to use (anyone whom I have asked say it is easier than Vista/WinBlows 7). Another common distro people use to switch from the virus (Wind0ze) to freedom (Linux, duh) is Ubuntu. I recommend Intrepid (Ubuntu 8), as 9 is unstable (still considered beta).

A lot of peoples' main concern is availability/compatibility of/with programs. There are programs available for everything I need, and I use a LOT (Office, terminal emulators, photo/movie players/adjustment programs, etc.), and they are FREE (so are cracked Wind0z3 progs, but, know...), and actually have GREAT support!

As far as your problem goes---it should offer to add an exception, or to install anyway. Seems in your case it did not, so maybe Program Control needs to be shut off so that everything can be run as roo...I mean administrator...WHEW! That was close!

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card

You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex Question

U don;t have to upgrade !
But if u do is very easy... when the new version is released the updater will ask u if u want to install the new version and will do all the job for u ....

Ubuntu 8.04 is a LTS version (long time support) so as a beginner i recomand u to keep this version becouse all possible problems will be fixed faster and u wont have to bother with them ...

Anyway is best to get info from u;re local/national ubuntu forum ...
