Fix those bugs for 8.04 LTS

Ubuntu 7.10 is a nice step forward for usability. A lot of things are just easier. . . installation of codecs and plugins, finding and configuring printers, use of 3D effects, etc. BUT (you knew this part was coming, didn't you?) the bugs are mounting, right and left, on the 6 month release schedule. Devs just don't have the time to fix bugs as they are busy pushing features ahead (some of which have many bugs that aren't fixed--read launchpad or the forums for proof) for the next release. Since the next release is LTS (usually, more like Debian Stable, featuring long-term support), it would be helpful if 8.04 had fewer new features and way more bug fixes. --AC

Return to Ubuntu 7.10 is outstanding
