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 installed it on my netbook on which it runs fine. Add the window-picker-applet to the top panel in the middle and you can basically remove the bottom panel. Maximus lets me run (almost ;) ) everything maximized without title bar ;) .

9.10 disturbed me more than this version, so for me it is an improvement, although I really dislike the default theme. I have the idea the colors are choosen at random or something. The Radiance theme suits me better, but that also needs improvement as the mail notification bar in pidgin is just black text on a nearly black background.

A lot of settings need gconf-editor, but just like you I still haven't found the setting to remove text on buttons. I must admit this time it still didn't disturb me that much.

As I always perform clean installs and I take the time to put my documents back I'm working with the cable, so no idea yet on the atheros wireless card. I hope I don't need to update it myself to make it work properly.

Changes are huge that I will be using this version for a long time as I really don't see the point how 'windicators' would improve my experience.
