Ubuntu 9.10 - Instant Karma, By Quaker

,----[ Quote ]
| Karmic Koala had noticeably improved boot 
| times, and the new IM client seems useful. I 
| was happy to report that the 64-bit flavor 
| seems to be back to feature-parity with the 
| 32-bit one. The Ubuntu One "cloud" thing 
| really doesn't affect me much either way, 
| but it's there for those who might use it.
| It's inevitable due to the timing of this 
| release that 9.10 will get compared with 
| Windows 7. I won't go into details but 
| suffice to say I don't see Karmic Koala 
| causing any grand upset of the established 
| Windows userbase. Can it hold its own 
| against Windows 7 in terms of stability, 
| utility on older hardware, and included free 
| software packages? Yes. Is it as shiny as 7? 
| No.
| That being said, Ubuntu 9.10 is still a good 
| example of a useful-to-everyone Linux 
| distribution that I'd have no trouble giving 
| away to less than computer savvy friends 
| without much worry about midnight tech 
| support calls. 


Ubuntu 9.10: New Feature Roundup 

,----[ Quote ]
| With Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) set to debut 
| this week, hereâs a run down of all the new 
| features and changes covered by WorksWithU 
| in the last several months.
| As the final non-LTS release before Lucid 
| Lynx in April, Karmic is heavy on new 
| featuresâwhich are likely to be less 
| pronounced in Ubuntu 10.04, where Canonical 
| will concentrate on stability and performance.

Ubuntu 9.10 Review; even better than before

| With the latest version, Ubuntu will give
| you integration with cloud computing and
| net-books. The ability to deploy
| applications in the cloud much easier than
| before is one of Canonicalâs goal for 9.10
| using Amazonâs EC2 platform. Canonical is
| also trying to beat the 25-second booting
| time when using Ubuntu 9.04 on net-books.


A Guided Tour Of Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

| Of course this over-view is merely
| scratching the surface of all of the
| improvements, refinements and changes
| present in Ubuntu 9.10; a hell of a lot of
| work has gone on under the hood, too.


What's New In Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala"

,----[ Quote ]
| The previous version of Ubuntu, version
| 9.04, offered the ext4 filesystem as an
| option, but not as a default. After six-
| months of testing and stabilization I am
| also happy to announce that ext4 will be
| enabled by default in Ubuntu 9.10.
| I have been very happy with the ext4
| filesystem. I have seen impressive speed
| improvements over ext3, and now use ext4 on
| each of my systems that supports it. Again,
| another impressive step toward a faster and
| more performance-driven Ubuntu experience.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
