Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just now, both the server and desktop editions of the Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope beta have been released. It comes with a boatload of new features, some of which come courtesy of upstream. A new GNOME release, a new X.org release, a new notification system, they're all in there.

Hmm, so in this case Ubuntu is just following. Either way, I don't really like the idea of that. How easy is it for someone who doesn't even know about the command to "accidentally" hit that combination, anyway? It's pretty well out of reach, I think, unless they meant Ctrl+Alt+Del and hit Backspace on accident. Not to mention, killing the X server, etc. has some very useful uses. It's possible to revert this change, but still not good as a default IMO.

It's not disabled (At least not in openSuSE) you just have to press CTRL+ALT+Backspace twice, within 5 seconds I think :-)
I'm actually pretty happy about it because of lack of patience I acidentially hits it a bit too often :-) the extra 5 seconds make you think once more if you really want to do this :-)

I have OpenSuSE running on my G5 and nope, ctrl+alt+backspace has not been disabled. Works as expected.

It's from upstream, x.org, you can re-enable it in the config (that by default does not exist) if you want.
