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.

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.

I wouldn't be surprised if it is a file system issue. I'm having similar problems with HD playback. On Leopard (on an SATA drive) and on Windows (PATA drive) 1080p drops one or two frames every few seconds, and I can only tell by using the Inspector during playback. On Ubuntu, installed to the PATA drive, 1080p is nearly unwatchable. It drops half the frames every second. This is all on a C2D 2.2GHz with a GeForce 8400GS. Granted, that setup is barely enough for 1080p in the first place, but it does work on other OSes.
