I'm much happier with it. It seems speedier, but I can't say for sure.
I find package management much easier. I probably had it back up and
running in about an hour using a mysql dump of mythconverg.

The only oddity I've noticed so far is trying to keep the system clock
synced. ntpd didn't seem to do it, but I haven't really dug into it.
The Ubuntu MythTV packages don't get updated nearly as frequently as
Axel's repository. I'll probably move over to svn soon because of
