Review: Kubuntu 7.04 (Part I)

Ubuntu

Well today I took a sip of the magical drink and tried out a new OS (Operating System) on my PC. No, I did not switch to that OS with the fruit on it. Besides, if I did, I would have to buy a whole new laptop (even though that does sound tempting). Plus, I do not think my editor would like me to summit a bill for $1200 just so I can have a new toy. No, what I have done is tried out one of the projects from Ubuntu known as Kubuntu.

If you have been living underneath a rock for the past couple of years, then let me tell you what I know about the Ubuntu community. Ubuntu is a community free OS that is based on Debian Linux distribution. The community started in October of 2004 and has been going strong. The goal of Ubuntu is, according to the website, “to most widely use the Linux system”. With Dell announcing that they will start giving their customers the choice of either using Ubuntu or Microsoft’s Windows as their OS, I can imagine that the number of people using Ubuntu will only grow.

Currently the Ubuntu community has three different projects to offer the user free of charge.

Full Story.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
