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 think he must be using an early version of the OS that doesn't come with most updates. If you need to download all the updates since the OS release, then I cannot possibly see how you can have it fully *updated* in one hour.

But I think you're spot on with the rest - I usually only use about an hour to get it fully *functional* as well. And I guess when you've done quite a few Windows reinstalls, it's second nature ;)
