The Ubuntu team has announced the release of Ubuntu 8.04 Long Term
Support (codename Hardy Herron), yay!

I have been running Hardy since somewhere around Tribe 2 on my primary workstation and besides some problems with VMware Workstation it has been a smooth ride.

I run Openbox as my desktop environment so I have noticed any real differences in that department but it seems that RANDR works better now allowing me to just hibernate the computer (I use an external screen at work) instead of having to reboot it.

Congratulations, Ubuntu!
