Discuss application use-cases in Lucid UNE

| It is felt that Ubuntu Netbook Edition 
| provides too many applications by default, so 
| this specification is about discussing the 
| use cases we want to support, and which 
| applications are needed to provide that.


Ubuntu 9.10 on Dell Latitude D820 Laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| The PowerBook G4 Mac in the house finally 
| quit working. We splurged $300 on a brand new 
| laptop recently. We got a 3 year old Dell 
| Latitude D820 from Craigslist. With 2.16 GHz 
| Intel Core Duo, and 1920Ã1200 screen 
| resolution â that makes for an impressive 
| system with Ubuntu 9.10 installed.
| [...]
| All in all, I am very pleased with the clean 
| look and speedy performance of Ubuntu 9.10 on 
| the Dell D820. Linux has come a long way, and 
| now looks totally professional, especially on 
| a high resolution screen. It certainly feels 
| like Iâm using serious computing power, and 
| the fact that itâs open source, free, and so 
| adaptable â is just inspiring. Thanks to the 
| leagues of open source developers out there 
| who created an amazing system, which in my 
| opinion is clearly superior to Windows on the 
| basis of speed, flexibility, and cost. Iâd 
| like to hear from others if they also have 
| similar opinions on the speed issues â and if 
| so â why isnât everyone switching to Linux on 
| the basis of that metric alone.


Kubuntu is Mono-free.


Kubuntu 9.10 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently broke my usual trend of sticking
| to Debian (stable) with a KDE 3.5 desktop and
| decided to try Kubuntu. I then decided to
| write this review...
| In the past it seemed that Kubuntu was an
| afterthought or some obscure side project
| (like Christian Ubuntu), but Kubuntu 9.10
| really steals the show. As many others have
| said, Kubuntu seems better put together than
| Ubuntu in many ways. The "glitchiness" in
| Kubuntu 9.04 has been diminished greatly in
| this latest release. This is probably due
| mostly in part to a newer version of KDE 4
| (that shows the great potential that KDE 4
| has).
