Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release (or Kubuntu, if that's your thing). Canonical has just released Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx. This is a long term support release, meaning its supported period is far longer than that of normal releases. It comes with the latest and greatest the Free software world has to offer, while also adding some Ubuntu-specific features, of course.

Yet another half baked effort

All the hype about THE BEST Ubuntu release yet - rubbish. I downloaded it and try to install it on my Toshiba A10 laptop and it fails! Turns out there is a major bug with Intel integrated graphics chipsets.

There is a work-around to at least get the Live CD going but even after the install there are likely to be the same graphics chipset problems. The fix for these is to totally degrade the graphics performance of the PC. And they call this THE BEST Ubuntu release yet! To think I was going to blow away a perfectly good fuctioning Windows XP install! I've got to get over thinking of Linux as a desktop alternative.

Linux has a long long way to go yet to be a serious desktop alternative.

Peter
