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.

Why would it boot faster from a HD than from an SSD? I thought SSDs were faster at everything.

Well, they aren't always faster especially if it's a low-end cheap ssd such as those found in Acer netbooks. Some of those ssds are no better than class 2 sd cards. NOt saying this was the case for the ssd, just pointing out that in order for them to be fast you need a high quality one. Otherwise, they can be dog slow.
