My (Updated) Experiences with Ubuntu 9.10

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu 9.10 was reviewed right here on this site. At the time, I found that the temporary theme wasn’t the greatest thing that I’ve ever seen, though it was a worthy upgrade to anyone using 9.04. However, since then my experiences with it have changed my view considerably.

While I almost completely switched to Arch Linux for all of my computers, my wife is still an Ubuntu girl, and probably always will be. She just loves it, and all of her computers run it. She recently purchased a netbook that came with Windows 7, and she immediately wanted me to wipe it and put Ubuntu on it. While I offered to install the UNR version (Ubuntu Netbook Remix) on it she made it clear that she just wanted standard Ubuntu, and that’s what I did. In addition, I inherited a netbook as well, though I decided that I would give the UNR edition a try.

On both of our netbooks, wireless is a bit flaky.
