The developers in their great wisdom strike again. Now no offence developers but I hope you are reading all the posts on the Ubuntu Forums, a poll on Brainstorm and bug reports on Launchpad. This end user thinks the choice to disable touchpad taps by default was completely absurd. I hope it gets changed before Karmic is released.
The good news is it's very easy to change the behavior. Just click "System > Preferences > Mouse > Touchpad tab" and click the enable radio button. A screen shot is below...
See, very easy to restore what most folks consider normal reasonable behavior.

I've been testing Karmic Koala on my daily use desktop machine using Virtual Box. And I "upgraded" my ancient (6.75 years) Toshiba laptop when Karmic Koala was at the alpha 5 stage.
I'm disappointed in some of the new artwork. The new icons are good looking but the default colors are just too brown to my eye.
I took a screenshot of the virtual install a couple of days ago.
