When Ubuntu Intrepid finally comes out

It will be time for me to reinstall everything from scratch. My system, although not unstable, still feels plagued by problems that accompanying the Hardy release. I got to agree with lots of the points made in Hardy is a hard time. In my experience: Flash still crashes Firefox too much, some applications are still not compatible with PulseAudio, Rhythmbox can't handle the size of my music collection, the Tracker Search Tool supposedly finds matches but doesn't display them, etc., etc.

I don't know how many of these problems will be fixed in the next release, but hopefully it will feel more stable (ironiclly, given that Hardy is a LTR). What I'm not looking forward to, though, is re-figuring the configuration I have become accustomed with. This post is a future reminder for me of how I want things set up:
