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.

Lucid on my MythTV box is quite nice. Not only did it clear up my remote control problems (it now uses devinput by default), but also remote input is very snappy now.

As a matter of fact, responsiveness is much improved overall. The stupid input delay is gone after the box sits for a while. Video playback and live TV starts very quickly as well.

The only problem I'm having is HD playback is very glithy. My computer was barely capable of handling HD in the first place, but now it's unwatchable. I enabled NvAGP, which was turned off somewhere along the way. That made 720p watchable. Now I'm working on 1080i. I suspect it is an ext4 problem.
