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!

This time I went even further, even though I have partitioned as you recommend here.

I usually just reinstall on my «/» partition, leving all my previous settings and then run s script I've hacked together to get things such as java, flash, dvcss2, all the codecs, fonts and a few apps I like to have (as skype & google earth...), but aren't installed by default on UNR (oh, yeah my main computer is an EEE 900). You can find the script at the following address: http://nalle.no/apps/standard-installapps-ubuntu As I said, it's just a hack, but it'll give you all the extras.

This time I did a clean install; only copying back again .mozilla, .mozilla-thunderbird and .evolution (yeah, I use them both, and I did backup my /home-partition). That way all I get to see how the interface looks by default, as I usually configure my interface quite heavily.

Usually I do this only on LTS-releases, but 9.10 had been hyped so much that I felt I just had to....

Edited for typos....
