Kubuntu Linux 9.10

| I please to (mostly) give this release of
| Kubuntu a thumbs up. Yes, there were some
| things I didn like but overall I think
| this is a step up from the last release and
| it quite usable. I like to see a better
| software management tool but it is
| functional as it is (though it leaves much
| to be desired in some ways) and I don
| think it a show-stopper.
| Kubuntu can be used by beginners and more
| experienced users alike. However, beginners
| might want to opt for the KDE version of
| Linux Mint after it is updated to
| incorporate the latest version of Ubuntu
| (9.10). It not that Kubuntu isn worth
| using, it just that Linux Mint is a bit
| more elegant and includes additional
| software that makes using it easier and more
| comfortable right from the start.
| Still, I think that Kubuntu is worth a
| download and well worth considering if
| youe a KDE fan.


Ubuntu 9.10 review: Karmic Koala

,----[ Quote ]
| Nonetheless, there virtually nothing an
| Ubuntu desktop machine can do that a
| Windows one can, and it all for free. For
| that reason alone it makes a lot of sense to
| at least consider a roll-out or a
| feasibility study to assess the costs of
| staff retraining, should you decide to
| abandon the Microsoft ship.


Review: Ubuntu 9.10 first look

,----[ Quote ]
| As Linux matures, it's becoming more and
| more of an OS accessible to the average
| user. KK is another step in that direction.
| There are still a few foreign concepts for a
| Windows convert to absorb, but on the whole
| Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala, is a package that
| won't be a horrible stretch for the novice,
| yet contains enhancements for the Linux guru
| as well.



An overview of Ubuntu 9.10 variants

| The much-awaited Ubuntu 9.10 was released
| as scheduled last week. For the benefit of
| those readers who are new to the Linux
| world and who might be overwhelmed by the
| sheer number of available options, here is
| a brief recap of the official release line-
| up.


Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

,----[ Quote ]
| I for this review I was running on an AMD
| 1.8ghz system with 512mb ram, NVIDIA
| Driver Version 173.14.20 (on a GeForce Fx
| 5200) so its a pretty old system. None the
| less it flew like an off the shelf modern
| PC.


Can the Karmic Koala Take on Win 7?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Karmic Koala is getting a warm
| reception among FOSS enthusiasts, but
| opinions are still strongly divided over
| whether this version of Ubuntu -- or
| indeed, any Linux desktop OS -- can win
| over mainstream computer users to any great
| extent.
