Ubuntu 9.10 'Karmic Koala' release gives KDE a boost

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source software vendor Canonical has 
| released the new version of its Linux-based 
| Ubuntu operating system, Ubuntu 9.10 -- 
| codenamed "Karmic Koala" -- and with it comes 
| a number of updates to improve the KDE 
| experience.
| Ubuntu has been a GNOME-centric Linux 
| distribution since its initial release, and 
| has been criticised for treating KDE like a 
| "second-class citizen" on the desktop with the 
| Kubuntu distribution playing "catch up" to the 
| standard Ubuntu.

| KDE-based distribution Kubuntu has released 
| version 9.10 which adds a new variant 
| showcasing the up and coming Plasma Netbook 
| setup. The release also adds OpenOffice KDE 
| 4 integration and extra installer beauty 
| thanks to artwork from KDE's Oxygen team.


Canonical Matures Linux-based Netbook OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical on Thursday updated its Linux 
| distribution for netbooks, simplifying the 
| interface and adding new programs that the 
| company says will make it easier for users 
| to access and use Web content.
| The Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix is designed to 
| run basic Web and office applications 
| typically used on netbooks. Netbooks are 
| cheap and lightweight laptops characterized 
| by limited computing resources and small 
| screen sizes.



A closer look at Kubuntu Karmic Koala and KDE 4.3.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Karmic Koala is still in Beta status, but
| looks very promising. To some extend it beats the
| Release Candidate of Microsoft Windows 7, especially
| in Wireless networking support.
| The big win of Karmic Koala are its even further
| improved speed, less resources hungriness and
| improved hardware support.
| I tested Microsoft Windows 7 RC1 (build 7100),
| Kubuntu GNU/Linux Karmic Koala Alpha 5 and Ubuntu
| GNU/Linux Karmic Koala Beta 1 last week and I'm
| afraid Windows 7 will (b)eat the dust.


5 things make Kubuntu 9.10 special

| It is based on Ubuntu 9.10 packages which means it
| will get: Linux kernel 2.6.31, ext4 filesystem by
| default,GRUB 2 boot loader and a lot more.


Preview of Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of the newest version of Ubuntu is only
| 10 days away. Many sites, including MakeTechEasier
| have covered its pending arrival and given you a
| glimpse of the Beta version. Today we are going to
| take a look at Kubuntu, the KDE-based version of
| Ubuntu.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
