Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Can someone comment on whether the new changes to the kernel and gnome (polling) have resulted in battery savings? We have now had two reviews on laptops with no mention of this. Thanks.


My laptop's battery is dead (not even 1.5yrs old) so can't help you on this one.

My battery is dead also, I am considering a new dell, thus my curiosity. Perhaps Eugenia will weigh in.
