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.

First let me say - This is a good release, boots incredibly quickly, very easy to set up and all my hardware worked fine even getting the surround sound to work on my desktop was not too fiddly.

However, on instillation on my desktop with an nvidia graphic card and the recommended proprietary driver installed, I could get to tty. Bad but resolved after the first update.

Proxy server settings are inconsistency applied with sudo so for example installing the flashplayer pluggin nonfree with synaptic or sudo apt-get install fails when the installer is pulling down the application. However, sudo -i then apt-get install works fine. No doubt this niggle will be resolved soon
