Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

How to save panel space

To get rid of the messages thing, uninstall indicator-messages.

If you don't use the me menu, you can uninstall indicator-me (this will allow you to still use the the session indicator, which IMO is much better than the other replacements for the GNOME panel).

If you want to save horizontal space on the panel, install dockbarx (it's in some PPA), which works much like Windows 7's taskbar.

Also, replacing the "Menu Bar" with "Main Menu" saves a lot of space.
