Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex raises the bar

I ran into a problem with my personal laptop where NetworkManager wouldn't scan for available networks after resuming from standby or hibernation, and I'd have to restart to get NM working again. I have replaced it with WICD for now, but my boss's laptop is going to need NM due to the mobile internet capabilities with his cell card, and that sort of behavior is not acceptable.

Other than that, it boots and shuts down remarkably fast on my work PC (core 2 duo 2.2ghz 1gb ram) and my personal laptop (pentium m 1.8ghz 1.25gb ram). It's definitely faster than Hardy was on either box.
