Ubuntu 9.10 text-installer review

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 9.10, also known as Karmic koala, is 
| the latest version of the popular Linux 
| distribution published by Canonical Ltd. 
| Aside from Ubuntu Netbook Remix, the netbook 
| edition, Canonical also publishes the Live CD 
| edition, and the alternate or text-installer 
| edition. The Live CD edition is the edition 
| that most users are familiar with. Though it 
| offers a simple, six-step installation 
| routine, the Live CD edition lacks some 
| features supported by the alternate installer 
| edition. Some people consider these features 
| advanced, but I choose to view them as 
| standard features of the Linux kernel.


Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Not a huge change. The boot up timings are 
| same as Ubuntu 9.04 and EEEbuntu 3.0 
| (review). 40-45 seconds to the main screen
| How much space does it take? Out of 4GB SSD, 
| after the installation had completed, I had 
| 1.6GB free. This is with no swap space. 1.6GB 
| should be enough for everything (except huge 
| media files) as all the basic apps that one 
| would need on a netbook are already built-in. 
| From an excellent IM app (Empathy) to web-
| browser to robust office apps, all are there, 
| already installed.



Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 Shines Bright

,----[ Quote ]
| UNR represents a solid step forward for
| netbook users. It provides anyone familiar
| with Ubuntu the same basic commands and
| applications you'll find in the desktop
| addition. It also makes it a snap to sync
| your key files between your main machine
| and a second (or third) painlessly. In
| contrast, Moblin caters to the mobile user
| interested in quick access to their
| favorite applications coupled with a quick
| boot time. Both do what they do well and
| should meet the basic needs of most any
| netbook user.


Linux is becoming the king of netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| What will be critical for Linux is the rise
| of netbooks that run on ARM processors. As
| the sales of these increase, Orr predicts
| Linux will overtake Windows on netbooks by
| 2013.

| Iâve been playing with the latest Ubuntu
| desktop release, 9.10 Karmic Koala, since

| full time for business work for three days.
| Here are my impressions and comments...
