Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Bang on target, the new version of Ubuntu Linux is available for our downloading pleasure. Amongst various changes it sports updates to the installer, improved networking, and a new 'Mobile USB' version geared towards the blossoming netbook market. Grab a copy from the Ubuntu website, and check out Linux Format's hands-on look. Or the one at Simple Thoughts. Or the one at PolishLinux. And probably a few other websites as well.

Well, that "horrid dos like screen" is what keeps one sane when booting an ubuntu-system, those few times that happens...(kernle/dist-upgrade).

Come on! Whats with beutiful colors and moving bars when booting the system? Isn't it much much better to be able to watch what happens? It's one big thing I miss in front of a windows-system(possibly OSX to but not that much exp. with that one ;) ) To know what is going on...

(yeah, im serious, some might not hink I am...)

Have you checked out Fedora's terminal screen recently, yes you can see all the modules and services being loaded/started, but it looks nice too.

Don't get me wrong I like Ubuntu a lot, but that doesn't mean we can't wish for a better boot splash and boot terminal screen.
