10:42 p.m. The servers have been white-hot and I'm in the middle of a Bittorrent download. I can tell the Ubuntistas have been waiting for this one.
I'll be downloading it and kicking the tires. I'm really hopeful that this might be the first version I can readily recommend to church administrators and ministers.
The main ubuntu.com site buckled under the strain of the downloads and their fancy site has been temporarily replaced by a plain but functional conduit to download.
