Running Gutsy

I upgraded my laptop from Feisty to Gutsy and it didn’t go as smoothly as others have reported.
I’m not really surprised as I don’t run a default Ubuntu desktop, I had installed some applications from source instead of the Ubuntu repository,

I’ve been running it for a week now and it’s pretty stable, good to see the integration with Compiz-fusion. I still am running software from source because I don’t like the fact Ubuntu doesn’t allow updating of certain software by the software itself, like Firefox and friends, Azureus etc.
