Ubuntu 9.04 is released…

And there still seems to be no real fix to the Linux-wide ICH8 on-board sound issue. Essentially, ALSA doesn’t support the Intel ICH8 family’s on-board sound, which means that I cannot get sound to work on my netbook.  This causes me endless delight, as Linux fanboys continue to tell me how everything with the OS works, and Windows sucks. Meanwhile, my Win7 partition works with no issues at all. (Suck it.)

Thousands of fixes can be found across the net, but none of them have worked for my set up yet (in Ubuntu, Sabayon, or Fedora.) This, essentially keeps me from doing anything even remotely like work on the netbook.

I guess you can’t have everything.
