Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Bang on target, the new version of Ubuntu Linux is available for our downloading pleasure. Amongst various changes it sports updates to the installer, improved networking, and a new 'Mobile USB' version geared towards the blossoming netbook market. Grab a copy from the Ubuntu website, and check out Linux Format's hands-on look. Or the one at Simple Thoughts. Or the one at PolishLinux. And probably a few other websites as well.

Why is Ubuntu's boot splash still as boring as Windows XP? and why when I hit escape do I get a horrid dos like screen.

Fedora and Suse both have much nicer terminal fonts and layouts during boot.

Also even Grub on Ubuntu is dissapointing.
