On April 28th a new version of the popular Linux Distro Ubuntu was released. i have tried out the Desktop version and found works very well.

some updates from Ubuntu 9.10

  • WAY faster boot time. about 15 seconds
  • New boot screen
  • Two new themes
  • New default background
  • GIMP dosent come pre-installed :( but can be easily installed by running the following command in terminal.
sudp apt-get install gimp

theres probably many more things under the hood, but this is what i have found my self so far.

some other things you might like to install

Gparted - Play with your partitions :D
sudo apt-get install gparted
Yakuake - lets you access the terminal by a hotkey - very useful
sudo atp-get install yakuake
Kmess - a MSN client for Ubuntu
sudo atp-get install kmess
Xampp - Apache Web server with PHP, SQL, and PERL
download from http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

More useful apps to be added
