Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We're a little late, but Real Life got in the way, so here we finally are. Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today that Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop Edition has been released. This version focusses on improvements in cloud computing on the server using Eucalyptus, further improvements in boot speed, as well as development on Netbook Remix. The related KDE, Xfce, and other variants have been released as well. Update by ELQ: Just a quick note to say that one of my Creative Commons videos was selected to be part of Ubuntu's Free Culture Showcase package that comes by default with the new Ubuntu version!

Ubuntu is not my distribution of choice on desktops, but this release is indeed very good.

I had a spare machine around and have been testing the release. In the end, I liked it well enough that I put it on my laptop as well.

I am also eager to see what Mandriva┬┤s release looks like as I have been a fan of them for a long time and usually prefer kde to gnome, but I must say that this release is awesome.

A great feautre is the smart integration into gnome that warned me with a livecd that one of the testing systems had a failing drive, which seagate tools indeed confirmed.
