Review: Ubuntu Unleased 2010 Edition: Covering 9.10 and 10.4 


Karmic To Lucid â A Few Bumps

| Ubuntu improves a bit with each release. 
| This release is no exception. I recommend 
| that all Ubuntu users do the upgrade as long 
| as their equipment permits it.

| KMS would be especially nice in a server

Ubuntu 10.04 review

,----[ Quote ]
| We are in the middle of another release 
| cycle. Folks in the community are busing 
| updating their systems, and demoing 
| distributions that hold promise. Should 
| Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx, be on your demo 
| list? I canât answer that for you. The best 
| I can do to help you decide, is present to 
| you a list of features that should make you 
| smile and also ones I think will not be good 
| for your blood pressure.



My thoughts on Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| So, why did I go back to Ubuntu? Why did I
| not stay on PCLinuxOS? Well, because KDE
| and GTK apps fought over control of Audio,
| and it forced me to use mostly GTK apps in
| a KDE environment. So, I wanted to go back
| to a GNOME distribution that offered great
| PulseAudio support, and something I
| havenât tried yet. So, although Iâve used
| previous versions of Ubuntu, I have had
| yet to give 10.04 a try. Not to mention
| Ubuntu 10.04 is normally my fall-back
| distribution where I normally expect
| everything to work.
| So anyway, to start off with, I kind of
| avoided using Ubuntu 10.04 for the first
| few weeks after release. Not because it
| was a new release or anything, but I
| wanted to give other distributions a try,
| and I wasnât really agreeing with some of
| the things Canonical was doing, and the
| attitude they had towards their users when
| the users were showing their discontent on
| the changes that Ubuntu had made to the
| titlebar, or the fact Ubuntu was trying to
| look and act like Mac OS X. Also, I tried
| the Beta out and I wasnât too big of a fan
| of it, even though I tried it in a VM.
| With the factors of the last time I tried
| 10.04 that it was in beta and that I tried
| it in a VM, and that I was getting a bit
| ticked off at PCLinuxOS KDE not wanting to
| properly install PulseAudio, I felt âWhy
| not give Ubuntu 10.04 a try.â
| [...]
| So overall Ubuntu 10.04 is a very nice
| distribution. I did have a few issues with
| it here and there, but nothing too much.
| Some of the issues I did have with it
| before even using the final version were
| more to do with Canonicalâs decisions, and
| the attitude towards the users that were
| showing their discontent towards the
| changes they made. Overall, I would
| definitely recommend it to somebody who is
| looking to start out with Linux â that,
| along with Mint, PCLinuxOS, or Mandriva. I
| would definitely say give this a try and
| tell me your thoughts on it in the
| comments! Thanks for reading, and if you
| want to, subscribe clicking on the link at

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

| Overall I think 10.04 is another great
| step forward to Ubnutu and Linux in
| general to get into the hands and homes of
| the average user. Kudos to the Ubuntu team
| for a great OS distro, keep up the great
| work guys!


More Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| The software bundled with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
| Lucid Lynx is much the same as the past
| few versions â Firefox, OpenOffice,
| Rhythmbox (think iTunes), and F-Spot (for
| digital cameras) â so you neednât scour
| around for the essentials. GIMP
| (Photoshop-like image editor, but without
| CMYK support) is not in by default any
| more but easily added.
| When you do need to install something
| else, a new Ubuntu Software Centre offers
| a cheerful interface, for a large
| repository of free apps.


Fawning Over Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| I canât say enough good things about this
| Ubuntu distro, I highly recommend you
| upgrade if you use older Ubuntu distros or
| if youâre a PC user whoâs itching for a
| change from Windows, download the ISO and
| give it a whirl without even installing
| it. Yes, Ubuntu Live CD will let you test
| drive the distro without even installing
| it. Again, well done Ubuntu crew, keep up
| the work and thanks for a beautiful and
| functional OS!

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
