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!

My Kubuntu installation stopped responding at 26% of finalization stage. Killed my spirit right away... too bad, because I was really looking forward to this release.

They should go the extra mile and use MC Hammer for the startup sound.

I'd be content with sound.

Almost 20 years of linux and still cannot have more than 1 program using the soundcard. Windows 3 with multimedia extensions could do this in 1990.

Perhaps we need a Linux with multimedia extensions. ;)
