[News] Ubuntu 9.04 Spells Trouble for Microsoft

Jaunty Jackalope: Are Alarm Bells Ringing in Redmond?

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu's Jaunty Jackalope has bounded onto desktops, and reaction in the 
| Linux blogosphere is mostly thumbs up. There are some who wish the Ubuntu 
| distros didn't come in such quick succession, however, arguing that there's 
| not enough time to stabilize them and get into serious application 
| development. Still, if it's all part of a hellbent for leather effort to 
| compete with Microsoft, it may just be working.     


Ubuntu Linux As Slick As Windows or Mac, Reviewer Says

| Also promising is that Ubuntu is making it easier to find and download 
| software that Ubuntu can't legally install in its free version, such as Adobe 
| Flash.  



Ubuntu 9.04 as slick as Windows 7, Mac OS X

| Looking back to the genesis of Ubuntu 9.04 six months ago, I suspect that its
| subtle but powerful changes are due to the new user interface team that
| Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth said at the time he would put in place. If
| so, that team has already earned its paychecks and even more, and we're
| looking forward to seeing what another six months of development will
| produce.
| In the meantime, kudos to Ubuntu 9.04: you got game.

Ubuntu 9.04 Review

| One standard, but remarkable (because it outdoes Vista) feature of Ubuntu is
| the Compiz Fusion 3D desktop, which has enables some really cool effects. Of
| course, for this feature to function you need a 3D accelerated graphics card.


A Kid’s review of Ubuntu

| She said she liked the sounds that accompany when she plays games that are
| not there in Windows. Moreover, she liked the penguins pretty much, which is
| of course a common feature of Linux distros. :)


Ubuntu 9.04 Review - Desktop Emphasis on the Jaunty Jackalope

,----[ Quote ]
| First, my only complaint with this release is that it gave me very little to
| write about. Very few earthbreaking features, but rock solid stability.
| But. The But. This is the Distro. The Distro that has finally won me over
| from the SUSE camp. The swaying points were the theme, stability and speed.
| To put it in better words, this distro takes over from openSUSE as my primary
| distro. At least, until SUSE 11.2.

| I was originally an Apple-centric developer back in the days who then shifted
| to writing software for Microsoft OSes just because that’s “where the money
| was” and where businesses were nailed into.  Apple has since replaced their
| original OS for BSD Linux.  The Linux OS itself has matured and flourished
| since my original exposure to Slackware, RedHat and SUSE Linux.


Kudos to Ubuntu for a great upgrade experience!

| So kudos to the Ubuntu developers (and all other Linux developers I guess for
| a great underlying architecture).

| When it comes to Ubuntu, usually, I skip spring releases and focus on autumn
| editions, as I've found them to be more cultivated and more responsive to my
| needs. This time, I decided to break tradition and give the latest Ubuntu
| release beta a whirl.
