Ubuntu 9.10 is great

I just updated 3 machines to ubuntu 9.10. My Desktop, my netbook and my mythtv machine. All of them were updated flawlessly except my notebook where the grub2 configuration was not updated… Chaos followed until I figured out that the kernel being booted was messed up and subsequently figured out that I needed to fixup the grub2 config file.

Since grub2 is not a standard ubuntu installation (this was done by Dell) I don’t blame them. In all I find ubuntu 9.10 to be pleasant and in particular I am very happy with 3 things:

  • pulseaudio is much better integrated with the sound controls.
  • mythtv 0.22 rocks. The clutter interface is much better.
  • flash works much better using a lot less resources. Now I can actually watch ABC ivew on my netbook.

    Good on you ubuntu team on a job well done.
