A friend of mine just installed the latest version of Ubuntu and his system
is locking up about once an hour.

He has a Dell something or other fairly high end system.

He was running SLED and decided to try Ubuntu.

Needless to say, it's back to SLED for him because Ubuntu didn't work well
at all.
