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 have made a clean install and had to do a couple of fixes concerning the "text mode" splash screen when using fglrx. Apart from that, some desktop bugs have been ironed out.

This release is mainly a quiet evolution of Lucid Lynx. Not revolution like their first thought when pushing GNOME 3 for this release. And by that, this release might be the LAST stable release to be followed by a couple of uncertain mess coming up when GNOME 3 ships with it.

One good point is that finally Flash Player is usable in 64-bit native mode. I think a definitive move to 64 bit is possible now, when it comes to our dependency on Adobe's hellish daily bread. Only issue is that the overall system memory footprint is much larger on 64 bit systems.
