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.

Installer support for UBIFS?

Just curious if anyone has tried the alternate install CD, and can tell me if there's support for installing to UBIFS? Sounds like that would be the better setup for things like the Asus eeePC, and other SSD-based netbooks.

Been running 8.10-beta2 on my 701-4G for about a week, but did the install from the desktop CD (via USB). Gotta say, the ath5k driver in kernel 2.6.27 works much better than the driver that comes with the default Xandros install.
