Linux Maverick Meerkat, the version of Ubuntu slated to be released later this year, brings with it several features and improvements that the Linux community has been eagerly looking forward to. I've taken a look at the blueprints for this next release, and picked out a few of the major items that Linux end-users will be interested in. Here are 5 things to look forward to in Ubuntu 10.10.

You should know better than relying on "tests" as those tomshardware are infamous for - and never rely on the task manager in Windows. It is embarrasingly misleading and inaccurate.


Well, actually I've only seen 3 benchmarks (here's another of them http://lifehacker.com/5457242/browser-speed-tests-firefox-36-chrome...) of the current crop of browsers, and all of them showed that Firefox used the least amount of memory when viewing multiple pages. This is something Mozilla has actively worked on so it's not a surprise. As for task manager, it's great to use for measurement if you know what it is you are looking at. I know Microsoft made some changes to it in Vista and Windows 7 so I can't vouch for that version, but in XP is does it's job very well. Perhaps you can enlighten me to why you find it inaccurate? Also, perhaps YOU could provide me with some tests that support YOUR claims?
