Still running Intrepid at home. It works great. What's new with Jaunty that's got you excited about it's release?

Since my recent upgrade a few weeks ago, I now have spare box that I've been wanting to put Ubuntu on. I've tried a much older version on a computer in the basement that rarely gets used, but was really impressed with the distro. Should I wait for the new version before doing the install?

I had 9.04 Alpha 1 installed for a while because there was a bug in the stable 8.10 Nvidia driver with Compiz. I haven't updated it, though, and I think it is still installed on my old hard drive, so I will have to reinstall if I want to get the final 9.04.

Hopefully I can get my laptop to boot 9.04 off my external drive with eSATA so I don't have to mess up the partitioning on my internal drive (plus, I'm out of space).
