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!

Oddly enough they broke the Inspiron 1520 which is a very common Dell laptop.

Installing Ubuntu for a relative is a bad idea since they will call you if something breaks.

It's not for human beings if it breaks working hardware and requires command line hacks to fix it.

Fewt's rant over this issue is a good read:
