- New Tomboy ;-)
- Installer offers to migrate settings from Windows, if you have it installed.
- Fresh install. Double-click latest Naruto ep. Totem opens, tells me it can't decode divx/xvid/whatever, but it thinks I should install some codec packages, and after clicking OK a few times the packages are installed and the video starts playing. I didn't have to restart Totem (or my machine, of course) or even press the play button again. It was awesome.
- Similarly, getting desktop effects and proprietary video drivers going was just a few clicks; no manually editing configuration files. Of course, this doesn't change the fact that my video card is too slow for such things.
- Feels faster.
- All the other great improvements moving from GNOME 2.16 -> 2.18.
- Magnatune and Jamendo available directly from Rhythmbox. That means free access to ~35,000 streaming tunes.
- Lots of French hip hop available from Jamendo.
- Migration assistant didn't offer to bring over my Firefox settings from Windows. I had to do it manually. :-(
- When I tried to play MP3s and AACs from Rhythmbox it just errored out. It should be as friendly as totem. I had to install -good, -bad, and -ugly all on my own.
- Jamendo and Magnatune won't work right now for some reason...must be camera shy, since I only brought up Rhythmbox to take a screenshot.
- Buying tunes from Magnatune requires too many steps and interaction with three separate apps.
- Lots of French hip hop available from Jamendo. ;-)
