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.

Live CDs

I will say this for Ubuntu... the live CD came up and detected my wireless card and found all the nearby routers. It also informed me that there was a driver for my Nvidia card that I could install.

The Fedora 12 live CD did not detect my wireless card and of course it doesn't have the nice message suggesting installing an alternate driver. That's fine, it's in the documentation, with a warning that the drivers could cause system instability.

Ubuntu has become very user friendly. It always was, but it just keeps getting more so.
