Natty Narwahl: Ubuntu marine mammal not fully evolved

Yes you can

"Could you not just login to a classic Gnome 2 desktop instead?"

Yes you can and very simply, just like you can with the Netbook edition of the previous release.

But then bashing something has greater dramatic effect if the tone of the editorial is such that it appears you have no alternative.

wireless wan

Wireless WAN is common here in Ireland and can be done quite cheaply with a bit of savvy. I used to use a PC-engines WRAP board in a waterproof enclosure with PoE and a MDDS dish (works well with a small mod) to get a 1Mb/s connection over about 13Km. Dish at the other end was substantial however as this was a community infrastructure.

There's a bunch of stuff at www.irishwan.ie including project howto's, equipment sources etc and lots of help in the forums.
