I believe Hardy had some problems. I never bothered with the GUI tools 
with my Hardy installations so I do not know about Networkmanager but I 
did see a lot of sound complaints with Hardy whereas the previous 
release 7.xx had no problems.


Another issue with GNOME i never bothered to check since I needed a KDE 
desktop with group policies thanks to kiosktool.
