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!

I hope in their PulseAudio "enhancements", they made it play better with WINE. This has been a significant problem for some times and its completely ruined multiple attempts by me to get others switching over to Linux desktops. I can get people all situated, show them how everything works, get their needed Windows apps running in WINE... Then 2 weeks later they give up on the whole thing because WINE blows up due to audio issues.

I certainly do not feel that Pulse was anywhere near ready for prime time when Ubuntu first included it in the distro and make ubuntu-desktop dependent on it.
