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 am extremely unhappy about packagekit, btw. If it works anything like it does in Fedora then no thanks. I think Ubuntu's packaging and update system is perfect and is far faster and better than Fedora's imo."

Well, Ubuntu developers disagree and are moving to PackageKit. Try the latest version in rawhide and you might come away with different impressions.

Btw, the transitions effects and stuff is already pushed from Fedora to upstream. Fedora prefers it that way
