I have recently set up a linux review site. I began my change over to Linux with Ubuntu. I've found this so far to be the best linux so far. I'm relatively new to Linux so I don't know all the distros out there (I don't think it's actually possibly taken the vast amount available), and have tested a few of the big names in Linux e.g Slackware, Fedora and UHU(big in Hungary) and some total random ones like Xange and Trisquel. Im finding it very hard to find a distro that matches the user friendliness and compatibility that Ubuntu has to offer. I currently have a vote section on my site and would love to see some more votes as at the moment there are very few votes and Ubuntu is top with 100%. If you know of a Linux version you think is better could you please contact me to let me know of it. If your favourite linux is not listed in the vote section, feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
As I said before I think Ubuntu is the best and id love to be proved wrong. So if you think I'm wrong tell me and the world what you think. here's what I had to say about the latest version of Ubuntu.
The update from 8.10 was a bit sketchy as it kept going very slow. But the next day i tried it again and it ran fine. I'm not sure whether this was a problem on my end or there's but it worked.
For those of you who haven't read my previous review I suggest you do that now to get the gist of it as this is a short review go to http://gnu-review.com/index.php?p=3_1
The new desktop looks great, and so does the login screen. here's a picture of the desktop.
There's a new update feature that updates only once a week which i think is a bit rubbish,cos if your running a lackluster system, when the updates come through your gonna find yourself waiting around frustrated. If your like me I hate waiting for things. But were there's a will there's a way. And there is a way, check this link it'll change it back to "the good old days" http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904
or type gconftool -s--type bool /apps/update-notifier/auto_launch false
into the terminal.
The new version now come swith open office 3.0. I don't know why it's better but it must be a good thing.It now loads faster, which is always a good thing.
There isn't much extra in this issue but I think its better than nothing and has some cool extras. if you want to know how to get the most out of Ubuntu check out this guide it can be downloaded or bought. Here's the link. At this moment in time Ubuntu is the one for me. It has everything you could want, and is extremely user friendly. I like this new issue it's all right and gets four stars.
