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.

I have to say I'm trying really hard to not defect to Fedora 10. Its looking really good so far

That is funny. I defected from Fedora 9 to Ubuntu 8.04 and now 8.10. I found Ubuntu did a better job integrating Pulseaudio. On Ubunutu it just worked for me. I began to dislike the perpetual beta feel to Fedora. It was a little too bleeding edge for me. I also am appreciating the robustness of apt-get. Yum is pretty good but ever try and cancel it mid-stream? You can usually cancel apt-get and start where you left off. If yum dies you have to remove the yum lock, restart yum, etc. (ugly) You could also install apt-get on Fedora.
