Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

Nice review, I was waiting for Lucid Lynx to 'stabilize' before I upgraded. After reading your article, I think I am ready to upgrade.

"It loads at around 10 seconds on my hard drive-based laptops, and in about 15 seconds on my SSD-based ones."

Why does your SSD based computers take longer to load, is this a mistake?

It depends what SSD disk is used, for example Intel ones are fastest (check random write I/O operations) while most of SSDs (OCZ/Kingston/...) are really bad in random write I/O operations, check benchmarks, I am sure that Intel SSD will be faster then any hdd, but a 'random' SSD may not be faster at all.

Also, from 'random' SSDs drives, SSDs with SandForce 1500/1200 controller are rather close to Intel when it comes to performance.
