Ubuntu 9.04 Live-CD

Over the weekend I tried Ubuntu 9.04 beta using the Live-CD.  Since I was using the Live-CD mode, I did not see any increase in performance with the file system, nor did I expect to.  However, I was disappointed with the fact Evolution 2.26 was not able to import PST files.  A friend of mine sent me a link from bugs.launchpad.net.  From what it looks like to us, they are working on the issue.

I also talked about using the Live-CD to a colleague at work.  I explained how I was going to update Ubuntu from 8.10 to 9.04.  He asked about my home profile and if I was going to back it up.  I said I was planning on backing it up, but I also explained that my home folder is on a separate partition.  So replacing one Linux distro with another is no big deal.  Just have to remember not to wipe out that partition, and instruct Linux that is where /home resides.
