    Re: News - Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope now available

    Did a clean install of the 64-bit desktop version instead of an upgrade from 8.10 because I had just bought a new HDD. I'm definitely getting faster boot times, the main advantage for me is that a lot of the newer apps are in the default repository. With 8.10, I had to manually add the PPA binaries and sources.

    I had one hiccup, my internet account requires me to login with username/password. Therefore I had to use pppoe to set it up, in the 8.10 help file, it had the ADSL modem setup instructions but they are missing from 9.04. So I had to run the 8.10 live cd just to find out how to set it up. Even then, I was not able to automatically connect to the internet after a reboot. Luckily there was a doc in the ubuntu wiki which had a fix.

    Also, updates were painfully slow for me at first. I had to manually choose the update server to get the normal download speeds.

    I had no problems with 8.10 on the above 2 issues. Only time will tell if the latest release will be up to standard.

    The alpha version on my laptop has knackered itself so I shall pop the release version on it this weekend.

    Lovely jubbly.

    I'll stick with 8.04 on my main rig for now.

    Working a treat for my Acer Aspire One, apart from the fan noise is back on again.
    It's a great OS though!

    Been using it on my laptop since its beta stages.
    Ubuntu has come a long long was since its first few versions, literally little to no tinkering required.

    My flatmate and I both bought an Acer Aspire One today from Tesco (for £99!), so we'll be trying this out on them in the morning.

    Re: News - Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope now available

    I've been using ubuntu since 5.x on a variety of systems, originally on older bits of hardware that I didn't have an XP licence for. Now, I use it on all of my media centre PCs and regularly update them to the latest version. I also have a cause for doing a lot of installs and would say that the improvement in the LiveCD environment over the last couple of years has been amazing. I last used 9.04 at beta and noticed that they had fixed a couple of the Gparted issues that have been bugging me.

    For those that haven't tried it before, you will be amazed at how well things just work in most cases. The driver support under linux is pretty increadible and ubuntu will sort it all out, if it can recognise your hardware, at install. The problem is, if you don't have the experience, fixing any issues that arise is going to be a problem - I think this is what puts many off. Until the whole world starts using linux, I don't think this will be solved...

    However, 9.04 seems well worth upgrading to. Even at beta it was slightly quicker to boot (or so it felt to me) and the desktop environment seemed very smooth. However, it often does when I've been clunking around on XP for a while. Definately TRY IT!

    Oh, ATi users beware. I had issues with the proper ATi drivers with 9.04 beta using VGA - and reading round I don't think they fixed them as yet. However, ATi support has been much better in recent times and I would expect it to be fixed soon. Also - audio over HDMI at liveCD - tell me thats not sexy.

    I have been using 9.04 on the server for a while. Really do like it and a good upgrade from 8.04 and 8.10.

    Also I got one of the Acer net books from Tesco for £99 and ripped it open, dropped another 1 GB of ram in and installed 9.04 Netbook Remix on and its a brilliant little toy now

    Never going back to Windows OS !

    ATI have dumped support for R5xx or below from their accelerated drivers :/
