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'm wondering how far down the tubes Linux sound will have to go before the distros decide that supporting crappy, incapable sound hardware with software mixing and other crap is just not worth it.

Sound has been reliable under Linux for some years now. But over the last year, audio reliability has taken a dive that I can scarcely believe.

And this is one regression that we can't really blame the hardware manufacturers for. Our distros did it to themselves. And to us.
