Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

I wish I could go back to Linux, but my laptop has issues. I have it plugged into a big LCD tv by HDMI, now previous versions of Ubuntu and Fedora both have failed to send sound along the HDMI cable - minor issue since I use external speakers anyway, I just like to control the volume with my remote. Second issue, and this is likely more an ATI issue, thanks to my crappy integrated video chip, if I shut down my laptop with the TV plugged in, and then go to start it without the TV (so if I should, heaven forbid, leave the house), X won't start at all, I'm left without a GUI. I can get the multimonitor set up working as expected except for this one crippling oversight. Fixt THAT and I'll be happy to go back. If anyone with a similar setup can tell me if it's working correctly in the current version, that'd be awesome.
