I’m selling a twin pack of Ubuntu and Kubuntu if any body hasn’t got them yet.
Ubuntu 9.10 is the latest release from Mark Shuttleworths Canonical.
There are lots of exciting new features in Ubuntu 9.10 including;
- The option to encrypt your home folder is worthy especially on mobile devices ie laptops.
- The Add/Remove software feature has been given an overhaul and renamed Ubuntu Software Centre the selection of FREE software is almost overwhelming, Sound & Video, Internet, Office, Education, Games including;
F-Spot Photo manager
Evolution Mail & Contact management
Brasero DVD/CD burning
Empathy Instant Messenger with Video camera support
RhythmBox Music manager
Transmission Torrent Downloader
- From boot to a desktop just takes a moment and because Ubuntu 9.10 is also a LIVE CD you can try out all the features before committing it to your computer. When you do decide you do want to install (and you will) its then just a case of a quick selection of Language details and a few questions about your hard drive and the install is underway.
- In Ubuntu’s time honored tradition the default artwork is Brown ! but this time the orange highlights help to soften the effect.
- I really should have timed the install it was that quick and it made a mockery of Windows 7 install time, especially when you consider that Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop is ready to run with most of the Office or Internet software already installed.
- Language support, even the the default install on the CD was able to render most Chinese letters, for instance, without further installation of any software.
This superb Twin Pack of CD’s gives you the choice of Ubuntu Linux using GNOME desktop manager or Kubuntu Linux using the KDE desktop manager, unlike MS Windows Linux users get to choose how they work (or interface) with there PC’s, for instance, you might prefer a clean desktop with no icons where everything is launched from a “right click” with the mouse or perhaps you are more comfortable with a traditional menu bar at the bottom of your screen, either way with Linux you choose the way you work not the Operating System.
