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.

Ubuntu screenshots just seem pointless ;) ooo.. more brown.. and it's still gnome!


Kubuntu 8.10 is neither brown nor GNOME.

If you can't abide the Kickoff menu, then just add the Lancelot menu item to your panel instead.

As an added extra-special bonus, it comes with no Mono installed!

Be warned though ... some nvidia cards have a serious 2D graphics bug which greatly slows down performance of KDE 4, Firefox 3 and OpenOffice 3 on Linux systems, so KDE 4 may not be right for you.

If KDE4 is not for you, you might consider Ubuntu Studio, also released today, which is still GNOME but not brown.
