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've been using this for a long time on my home machine:

- Audio has problems on kde. At home, it was fixed by switching to kdm (and possibly some new fixes), but at work it's still broken. I blame KDE's reluctance to work with pulseaudio on this, but I may be horribly wrong.

- Wine + pulseaudio (spotify) works with this hack:

- KDE with the nvidia binary drivers is insanely fast. Really. I've never seen compositing work that well (with either Gnome or KDE).
