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 have to agree with the review. I've had nothing but positive experiences so far. I'm particularly happy with the removal of the hal daemon, which finally brings GNOME's power consumption down to proper levels and is very very good for battery life. I also wish I could change the indicator's mail icon, though in my case to Thunderbird. I hate Evolution, it's massively bloated and crash-prone and it doesn't seem to be getting any better, quite the opposite. Evolution is devolving, though it's an upstream problem not an Ubuntu one. At least Thunderbird, while a bit on the heavy side, doesn't crash on me and actually threads my mail properly.
Ubuntu One is nice for what it is, I use it to sync my documents across my systems. I wish it had bookmark sync too, but hey there's Xmarks for that I guess.
All in all, a very nice release.
