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.

Still Playing with the live CD

I haven't installed it yet. I have just been trying the live CD and building up courage to replace my trusty old Hardy workhorse. Lucid is stunningly beautiful, on the other hand live CD is excruciatingly slow. But then the live CD's always are slow as I remember, right back to Dapper.

However in comparison at the same time I have been trying the sidux XFce live disk and it is blazingly fast even on CD. Nowhere near as pretty but very functional and everything works. Both of these are the 64 bit version. I have a 32 bit Ubuntu running on my three year old Celeron based current system. However it is EM64T and running these two live CD's shows its 64 bit capability really does work.

So what am I going to do? I guess I will have to install them both.
