An overview of Ubuntu 9.10 variants

,----[ Quote ]
| The much-awaited Ubuntu 9.10 was released 
| as scheduled last week. For the benefit of 
| those readers who are new to the Linux 
| world and who might be overwhelmed by the 
| sheer number of available options, here is 
| a brief recap of the official release line-
| up.


Kubuntu 9.10 â Karmic Koala

,----[ Quote ]
| I for this review I was running on an AMD 
| 1.8ghz system with 512mb ram,  NVIDIA 
| Driver Version 173.14.20 (on a GeForce Fx 
| 5200) so its a pretty old system.  None the 
| less it flew like an off the shelf modern 
| PC.


Can the Karmic Koala Take on Win 7?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Karmic Koala is getting a warm 
| reception among FOSS enthusiasts, but 
| opinions are still strongly divided over 
| whether this version of Ubuntu -- or 
| indeed, any Linux desktop OS -- can win 
| over mainstream computer users to any great 
| extent.


New Ubuntu appliances from TurnKey

,----[ Quote ]
| TurnKey co-founder Liraz Siri has announced 
| the availability of the 2009.10 release 
| batch, which includes 40 new and updated 
| appliances and support for Amazon EC2. 
| TurnKey Linux is an open source project 
| with the goal of developing a free virtual 
| appliance library that, according to the 
| developers, "features the very best server-
| oriented open source software".



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.


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

,----[ Quote ]
| Less than 13 days and Kubuntu 9.10 will be released.
| 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
