  1. There is a very painful bug in Gutsy for me.
    In fact it’s so painful that i use another laptop with Feisty instead of my shiny new laptop with Gutsy.
    There is a general freeze of the computer and i must hard reboot the laptop (i cannot use the computer more than a few minutes). Yet i use a Intel card with the free driver so it’s not a problem of proprietary driver.

    Thread on the problem on forum.ubuntu.fr (in french) : http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1276033

  2. The USB key plugin bug is ridiculous, who does the QA before releasing the distro.

    Few more bugs :

    The emblems are too small there is a work around but it only works on themes with scalable icons.

    The Nautilus search can’t search within the folder you are browsing. This bug has been confirmed.

    The work around is to install a tool called nautilus search
