Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We're a little late, but Real Life got in the way, so here we finally are. Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today that Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop Edition has been released. This version focusses on improvements in cloud computing on the server using Eucalyptus, further improvements in boot speed, as well as development on Netbook Remix. The related KDE, Xfce, and other variants have been released as well. Update by ELQ: Just a quick note to say that one of my Creative Commons videos was selected to be part of Ubuntu's Free Culture Showcase package that comes by default with the new Ubuntu version!

I've been testing since alpha releases, and it was very
reliable. With final release, more reliability is expected. Great piece of sotfware ;)

Grub 2

On top of that, GRUB 2 is now the default bootloader - however, if you are upgrading a system which still uses the old legacy GRUB, it won't be updated to GRUB 2, as this is a rsiky operation.


Because of this rsikiness I won't update my current setup of my desktop to Grub 2. I'm thinking of reconfigure the dualboot on my laptop so I can still enjoy Grub 2.

It has been a nice alpha, beta and rc too (on the vm)
