Linux Maverick Meerkat, the version of Ubuntu slated to be released later this year, brings with it several features and improvements that the Linux community has been eagerly looking forward to. I've taken a look at the blueprints for this next release, and picked out a few of the major items that Linux end-users will be interested in. Here are 5 things to look forward to in Ubuntu 10.10.

I guess most netbooks have hard drives now, but IMHO for your classic SSD based netbook Chrome isn't entirely ideal since there is no way to turn off disk caching

I have a classic SSD based netbook (asus eee 900) running Lucid, and Chrome is much, much faster than Firefox there.

They have an interesting way of spinnig it:

Ubuntu 10.10 aims to improve netbook support (using its Ubuntu Netbook Edition release), and part of this is a migration to the light-weight Chromium browser.

I wouldn't call Chromium "light weight", it's just faster. It's not like it's a reduced experience or anything (improved security through process separation, etc).
