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!

No problems whatsoever with Kubuntu and KDE 4.3/Phonon. Multiple programs using the Phonon/Xine/Alsa sound stack simultaneously.


I appreciate your intention, but when looking for solutions in the past on boards and IRC, all I've ever heard is: "I'm running distro X. Try distro Y"

So all I have to do is replace my existing Linux operating system, with another Linux operating system? Fantastic.

Changing operating system is a big, time-consuming event. The OS may be a commodity, but it isn't a triviality!

I could get Windows 3.0 to play sound (including multiple files at once) by installing the multimedia extensions. In Linux in 2009, the best bet is a total reinstall.

Time to calm down and listen to music. but not before closing firefox to free the soundcard for xmms!
