    News - Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala now available

    Not too keen on the cost of Windows 7 or Mac OS X Snow Leopard? You might enjoy Ubuntu.

    Shameless plug, additional links, discussion, and information.

    I'm torrenting the images now. Will get back on it later.

    Click the "Alternative download options" link. It'll give you a selection for other images, including amd64.

    Re: News - Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala now available

    I'm banging the same old drum here, but anyway...

    I'm a huge fan of the NetBook Remix (NBR) version of this.
    I remember reading a while ago about Microsoft's threats of owning patents on certain aspects of GUI's (i cant remember if this was also tied in with all that SCO stuff too), but basically it boiled down to "anyone who makes an OS that uses a 'start' button in the bottom left, from which you get your menu to select your apps is copying Microsoft's way of doing things". Or some such.

    Anyway, my point is that the NBR version of 9.10 uses a beautiful and genuinely different layer on top of the regular OS, which works a treat on smaller screens, but is in fact also great on large monitors too. I think that it could (should?) become the default interface.

    You've missed out the Interpid Ibex and the Jaunty Jackalope. They go alphabetically you know!

    Lusty Llama FTW... maybe.

    Edit: Oh it's 'Lucid Lynx' - boooooooo.

    Ubuntu 10.04 is codenamed Lucid Lynx

    I've been using Ubuntu Desktop since 8.04, but per MSIC suggestion, I think I will give NBR a try, the screenshots do look rather good. But NBR is only 32-bit, right?

    Nope, last release was Jaunty Jackalope and before that was Intrepid Ibex
    Don't like the way they've hidden the 64 bit download though and hopefully they will let you pick exactly what mirror to use when more are online like with previous versions.

    D'oh beaten to it! I should refresh tabs before replying...

    It doesn't matter how many versions they come out with. Linux is a distinct and very microscopic community of only hardcore geeks. It is a Windows world and Linux has even less place than Mac does worldwide (3.36% market share).

    With Windows 7 released there's even less curiousity to move to any Linux distro. Tombstone should read: Linux (1991-2009), Tried and Failed

    Uh huh. Chances are very good that your mobile phone is running Linux in some form, or another. Your router is almost definitely running Linux. Hell, some of your PC hardware could be running a bastardised Linux without you realising it.

    Ubuntu itself is hardly what one could consider 'only for hardcore geeks'. Furthermore, Linux commands more than 50% of the server market.

    Linux is all around you, it just doesn't need to spam the planet with marketing buzz in order for it to work.

    Well that's a wildly exaggerated statement to make.

    Microsoft has a gigantic desktop market share, true, but that doesn't invalidate Mac OS and Linux's presence.

    The story is somewhat different in the server market too.

    And let's not get into mobile and embedded platforms or we'll be here all week.

    Exactly, truth be told, if you were to add up every device running Linux (in some form or another) it would easily dwarf the number of devices running some form of Windows.

    You obviously know nothing about what you've just said as has been mentioned above. A thread about Linux isn't the place you should start trolling about it really is it - if you don't like it don't bother posting!!

    Well I'm not sure I agree with that statement either, but in any case, across all devices and uses, the playing field is far more level.
