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.

I know how to do all this, but it's not what I want to do. You see, I still want the battery and volume indicators. I don't want to remove the whole applet! I just want to be able enable/disable some of them to never show up (e.g. mail). Another example, in the me menu, is the fact that it displays my username, "eugenia", while it would save space if it just displayed my user icon. So basically, I do want the features offered, I just need some basic power over them. The solution is not removal, but some preferences.

Also, I avoid third party toolbars etc. I need stability and memory efficiency for my mom. Third party stuff usually break after updates, so I try to avoid them. If something breaks on my mom's netbook, she will have no one to take care of the problem, since she's in Greece, and I'm in the US.
