[News] Good New Reviews of Ubuntu GNU/Linux 9.04

Jackalope gets jaunty with Ubuntu nip and tuck

,----[ Quote ]
| Under the hood, the latest version of Ubuntu offers a kernel upgrade, the 
| latest version of GNOME, support for the Ext4 filesystem, and a more stable 
| and robust Linux distro than its less-than-thrilling 8.10 predecessor.  


New Ubuntu 9.04 installed - not many dead

,----[ Quote ]
| I upgraded at 6:30. I turned off at midnight (another wild evening), having 
| forgotten I'd done it. Fantastic. 
| There is an argument - for want of a better word - among creationists, that 
| while microevolution is possible (small features may change between 
| generations of living beings), macroevolution (ie, a dog to a horse) is 
| impossible. The biologist's world-weary reply is, well, a dog never becomes a 
| horse. Things do change gradually - and if they diverge enough, then one day 
| you'll have a dog and a horse from a common ancestor. In short, there is 
| no 'macroevolution'.      


Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope slices boot time in half! 

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the great promises of the Ubuntu spring release is the shortening of 
| boot times. Alongside a modest range of humble changes, the boot performance 
| is supposed to be one of the major improvements that Jaunty Jackalope brings 
| over Intrepid.    



Ubuntu 9.04: Faster, but more of the same.

,----[ Quote ]
| Another six months, another solid Ubuntu release. It's not exciting, but it
| does fulfill its traditional role of workhorse OS on my laptop. I'm okay with
| that. Trying to do too much rarely results in a useable product.


Ubuntu 9.04 Free CDs: Orders Are Taken Now

,----[ Quote ]
| There's only one week left until the final release of Ubuntu 9.04 and, if you
| are anxious to get your hands on some nice CDs with the new Ubuntu operating
| system, then you should pre-order them right now from Ubuntu's ShipIt
| service, free of charge (a free account or an OpenID is required). They have
| started taking the orders a few minutes ago, so hurry up!

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
