Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release (or Kubuntu, if that's your thing). Canonical has just released Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx. This is a long term support release, meaning its supported period is far longer than that of normal releases. It comes with the latest and greatest the Free software world has to offer, while also adding some Ubuntu-specific features, of course.

Well, boot times are not so important, but neverthless - it's still worse on Debian than any other distro [Slack/Arck/Gentoo in particular]. All the trash Mark had put into the startup scripts makes it just slow, and that's a Debian nature to be just slower than others.

10.04 actually boots faster than my previous Arch setup (which had most daemons backgrounded). Maybe give it a try? ;)

Hmm, sounds interresting. I think I'll give it a try, as I normally use Arch/*BSDs setup.
It's always good to revise your knowledge, isn't it?

...and that's a Debian nature to be just faster than others, and much more stable


Fixed that for ya. OTOH, I'll be apt-get dist-upgrading my laptop tonight to try 10.04 out.

That would be cool. I hope it will actually work better *even* on slower HW specs.

And it turned ugly real fast. The system came up with no video, and would not let me switch to a different tty. After several hours of screwing around, I reinstalled from scratch, which had the added bonus of having no sound in videos, and having to restore my home dir from backup due to it being encrypted...

Damn you Ubuntu!
