I did. Yesterday on my laptop, after a 4 hour download. I wanted 
Mono-develop and the mod-mono ASP module for Apache.  It became obvious 
that Warty was not the place to be playing that game.

I was left with a system that hung on boot to the extent that I had to 
remove the battery to bring it back to life at least twice before I gave 
up and went to bed.

This morning it booted cleanly first time and has had no trouble since - 
self-healing software!

Not quite such happy news on my attempt to retain dual-boot with Fedora 
Core 1 though. Ubuntu copied the Grub entry over but it just does a 
default Ubuntu boot instead. I think my problem may have been that I had 
a small /boot partition. It's about time I became more familiar with 
GRUB. I'll do it right after I've learned C#, object-oriented 
programming and design, .Net, Mono, web services and ASP.

Please don't mention Python. It frightens the Window-monkeys. In the 
transaction above, Win NT 4 bit the dust - always satisfying.
