An Application Ballot Screen For Ubuntu? Oh Jeez...

,----[ Quote ]
| The following idea, proposed on Ubuntu 
| Brainstorm, puts forward the sugeestion 
| that users should be allowed to configure 
| the application set before installation. 
| Sort of like the Windows Browser ballot but 
| for, well, pretty much everything.

| Installing Ubuntu was a breeze - 5 minutes 
| to reboot and configure, 15 minutes for the 
| actual installation.

| Now it looks like the Ubuntu team is

Future Ubuntu Netbook Edition to be slimmer and lighter



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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
