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

Well, when I first ran Gutsy, it had the same battery life as Windows Vista (translate, not very good at all) then I put Debian Sid back on there for a while and it was much better. But now It's working much better and I have quite long lasting battery.

Also as a side note, the battery monitor actually works properly now for my Logitech Wireless Mouse as well. If it's low on juice, it pops up (which was working before) but now it actually tells me it's charging and when it's fully charged. Very nice addition ;)
