[News] 64-bit Laptop Gets Kubuntu GNU/Linux Treatment

Hash: SHA1

Hotrod Your Asus Laptop With 64-bit Kubuntu 

,----[ Quote ]
| After about a week of evaluation, I'd say that if you need a new laptop, you 
| can't go wrong by teaming up the latest version of Kubuntu and the Asus 
| X83-VM. The fit and finish is great. It's light and has a bright 14 inch 
| screen. Kubuntu has done a great job with the desktop applications and 
| hardware recognition.    



Wow! Kubuntu looks very nice!

| If you’ve never used KDE on your PC before, it will take some time to load
| all the way to the desktop on the very first run.  I believe it sets up all
| the menus and shortcuts for all the installed software.  If you log off and
| log back into KDE, all the logins (and the  splash screen) will load a lot
| faster...


Preview: Ubuntu/Kubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid Ibex”

| As a whole, I think the Ubuntu and Kubuntu teams deserve a giant pat on the
| back.  While I was only looking at a beta here, I think I will be making the
| jump over the weekend to Kubuntu.  I am a longtime Ubuntu user and I still
| like Ubuntu a lot, but I think it’s time to give the latest KDE a shot!


Kubuntu 8.10 'Intrepid Ibex' Beta Screenshots Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| I took these screenshots using a Kubuntu Intrepid Beta installation after
| performing a full dist-upgrade, at 1280x1024, with the nVIDIA 173 driver
| installed. I left all the settings in applications default, but I had to make
| fonts smaller and resize windows (in Konqueror for example), because they
| didn't look very well as default. The default theme used is Oxygen.


Ubuntu 8.10 Release Candidate Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| The release candidate version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid
| Ibex), which is scheduled for launch in late October this year, arrived a few
| hours ago and, as usual, we intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest
| changes in the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared with the beta release, which
| brought Firefox 3.0.3, PAM authentication framework and a BBC plugin for
| Totem, this version comes with two brand new and useful tools: a System
| Cleaner and a USB Startup Disk Creator.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
