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!

that loading screen is ugly - well not to my taste any one like it?.


No, it's goddamn awful. I like all the other artwork, inluding the login and especially the New Wave theme but the loading is screen is horrible. I keep waiting for Mr bean to drop out from the top of the screen.
They should have kept the Hardy loading screen, it was just right.

The gdm login screen is not customizable and a little ugly?


I actually like it. I guess the reason it's not as customizable as before is because GDM has been rewritten.
