Ubuntu Edgy for old time sake

I wanted to try out Ubuntu Edgy Eft out for nostalgia, this is the release that got me hooked. I was curious of the look, because of all of the discussions of the new Ubuntu look in Lucid Lynx.  As soon as it booted I had to mess with xorg.conf file and set it to "VESA" ,  this brought memories from my first install. I spent hours tweaking it when I first tried Ubuntu in 2006, first just to get it working with my ATI card, then of course to run Beryl. It was fun to run I still liked the look of Edgy, I was an interesting contrast to the new look of Ubuntu.
