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.

I remember back in the day when upgrades occasionally would break X11 etc, but not this time.

Think again - it happened to me. I had to create an entire xorg.conf file. Not nice.

Interestingly, this is the first Ubuntu release I haven't had to create or edit one. For the first time, the Nvidia control panel correctly identifies my monitor and the Auto settings work. Though, I still reduce the refresh rate to comply with my LCD's recommended 60Hz; this sharpens up the text and on an LCD the low refresh doesn't give me headaches like it does on CRTs.
