Kubuntu 10.04: Another Average KDE Distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Kubuntu is an official derivative of Ubuntu, 
| which focuses on using the KDE desktop 
| rather than GNOME, and applications built 
| with Qt over GTK. In the past, Kubuntu was 
| new and fresh, and had that extra bit of 
| attention paid to it that made a real 
| difference. In fact, Kubuntu is mostly 
| responsible for my giving up the GNOME 
| desktop and preferring KDE, because Kubuntu 
| implemented it right, though later on 
| quality of this distro fell through the 
| cracks. I tested the latest release on my 
| Dell Latitude D630 laptop, an oldie but 
| still one of my favorite machines.


DEFT Linux 5.1 Comes with Sleuthkit 3.1.1 and Autopsy 2.24

| DEFT Linux is a highly specialized Linux 
| distribution aimed at forensic computing. It 
| comes with a number of dedicated tools and 
| is a computer investigatorâs best friend. 
| The latest release, DEFT Linux 5.1, is a 
| small maintenance update, which brings some 
| newer packages and fixes a couple of bugs. 
| The projectâs leader, Stefano Fratepietro, 
| announced the release earlier today and the 
| distro is available for download from the 
| link below.



Kubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)

| Hereâs a list of some ofz whatâs new in this
| release:
| The Kubuntu logo has been updated on the |
| splash screen and in the desktop menus
| KDE Plasma Desktop 4.4
| Linux kernel 2.6.32
| Amarok 2.3
| Installer slideshow
| Touchpad configuration
| Firefox KDE integration
| System notification updates
| Gnome application system tray integration
| The updated Kubuntu logo is fine but seems
| to only appear on the bootsplash screen and
| the desktop menus. Beyond that there is no
| other branding to indicate that Canonical
| is behind the release of this distro.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
