Review: Ubuntu Linux 10.04 â It just works

,----[ Quote ]
| Out of the box comes a complete operating 
| system with a full office suite 
| (OpenOffice), FireFox webbrowser, CD/DVD 
| burner, movie editor, IM-client, BitTorrent-
| Client and so much more. You can practically 
| immediately start working and doing everyday 
| tasks right after the installation. Itâs 
| still a complete mystery why the .mp3 
| support is missing, but it take a few 
| seconds to fix that and start listening to 
| your music collection.


Ubuntu 10.04 Upgrade: Best Practices Checklist

,----[ Quote ]
| Have you been thinking about upgrading your 
| computer to Ubuntu 10.04? I recently made 
| the leap, at the prompting of my Update 
| Manager. The process went fairly smoothly, 
| but I did have to deal with a couple of 
| minor annoyances. Since you never know 
| exactly what may happen when you decide to 
| upgrade, here are a few tips to get you 
| started.


Ubuntu 10.10 âMaverick Meerkatâ To be Radical, Promises Shuttleworth 

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical chief, Mark Shuttleworth said on 
| his blog recently that the Ubuntu version 
| 10.10 will be focussed on being social and 
| being fast. According to him, the OS is 
| getting faster and faster when it comes to 
| boot times but âthe final push remainsâ. In 
| the mean time, he said that the Netbook 
| Edition of Ubuntu 10.10 will have a revamped 
| UI and it will be the fastest booting and 
| the fastest to network OS for netbooks at 
| that time. Canonical is of course the 
| company that funds and oversees the Ubuntu 
| project.
| In keeping with the alliterative and animal 
| naming scheme â Ubuntu 10.10 is being called 
| âMaverick Meerkatâ. Meerkats are social 
| creatures by nature. They are very family 
| oriented. And their name has been adopted to 
| signify the emphasize being laid on being 
| social.



Ubuntu Linux 10.04 Lucid Lynx

| In Short
| Ubuntu's one-size-fits-all nature makes it
| a good initial introduction to Linux-based
| operating systems. Visually, it keeps
| improving, but it is not quite all the way
| there yet. While many can argue whether
| Linux is ready for the desktop, there's
| little doubt that Canonical packages up
| Ubuntu better than the vast majority of
| distributions out there. The biggest
| compliment one can pay to Ubuntu is that
| it feels like a professional product in
| its installation, look and feel and above
| all updates. If nothing else, you should
| give Ubuntu a try to give you some
| perspective on how well your own OS suits
| you.
| The Good
| Maturity and popularity aid in usability,
| integration with cloud services, long-term
| support (LTS) release, painless update
| from previous version.
| The Bad
| Might be too Mickey Mouse for hardcore
| Linux users, strong branding and colour
| scheme.
| The Ugly
| Nothing.
| Bartender's Score
| 8/10


Ubuntu 10.04: a real money saver for small businesses

,----[ Quote ]
| In use, Ubuntu is a stable operating
| system with a mature front end. Version 10
| is a pleasure to use, feeling more
| responsive than any form of Windows and
| easy to configure via the various control
| panel dialog boxes.


Ubuntu 10.04 review

,----[ Quote ]
| UNR, the netbook version, benefits most
| from the new theme and more efficient use
| of screen space, but we're waiting for
| Canonical's Unity and Gnome 3.0 for any
| real taste of revolution on the small
| screen.
| What we're left with is a division. If
| you're not a current Linux user then
| Ubuntu offers the best Linux experience
| you can have. The desktop looks ultra-
| modern and the package manager is slick,
| expansive and easy to use.
| But if you're a Linux user looking for a
| spring break from your current
| distribution, this release doesn't do
| enough to warrant the upgrade. While it
| looks nice, there's no real innovation and
| nothing we can get too excited about.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
