Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu When Dell announced a shift in its Linux strategy last week, accompanied by a new netbook, many wondered why Dell insisted on pre-loading Ubuntu 8.04, instead of newer versions of the popular Linux distribution such as 8.10 or 9.04. BetaNews contacted Dell about it, and Dell replied explaining their rationale behind opting for 8.04.

I've been running 9.04 on my Inspiron since the RC came out. It has been rock solid, and to me, it's their best release yet. I had problems with 8.10 wanting to freeze, or slow down drastically at times for no apparent reason. But, the performance of 9.04, as well as the polish of it, has made it my favorite release to date.

Pitty they didn't make the Gnome desktop theme the same as the default GDM theme. I *love* the look of the gdm login screen. :-)
