Ubuntu 10.10 has just been officially released today. I’ve been using both the Desktop and Netbook versions for about a week now and I’m extremely impressed with how far along the desktop version has come since I last used it full-time (5 years ago). I can’t say the same for the Netbook Edition which comes with the new Unity interface. It’s slower overall compared to the previous version and other Linux distros and the interface is a little awkward.
I appreciate that it’s the first Ubuntu netbook version to recognize my Wi-Fi card in my old Samsung Ubuntu 10.10 starter tips.netbook out of the box but it works less than half the time. Boot up and shut down are extremely quick. I will stick to the Desktop version on my netbook alongside Jolicloud. If you haven’t already check out OMG! Ubuntu for some
