Ubuntu: Install Ubuntu Netbook Edition with Wubi Installer
2010-05-19 20:38:12 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Howtogeek posted a guide on installing Ubuntu Netbook Edition with Wubi Installer

"Ubuntu is one of the most popular versions of Linux, and their Netbook Remix edition is especially attractive for netbook owners. Here we’ll look at how you can easily try out Ubuntu on your netbook without a CD/DVD drive.

Netbooks, along with the growing number of thin, full powered laptops, lack a CD/DVD drive. Installing software isn’t much of a problem since most programs, whether free or for-pay, are available for download. Operating systems, however, are usually installed from a disk. You can easily install Windows 7 from a flash drive with our tutorial, but installing Ubuntu from a USB flash drive is more complicated. However, using Wubi, a Windows installer for Ubuntu, you can easily install it directly on your netbook and even uninstall it with only a few clicks."

Ubuntu: Lubuntu Netbook Remix: A Look

WorkswithU posted a review on Lubuntu Netbook Remix

"Ubuntu Netbook Remix is not the only game in town for users looking for an Ubuntu interface that caters to the small screens (and, in some cases, touchscreens) of netbooks. Lubuntu also offers its own version of the “netbook remix.” Read on for a look.

Back in February, we wrote a couple reviews of Lubuntu, the lightweight Ubuntu variant based on the LXDE desktop environment. But we got too wrapped up with Lucid’s release and other pressing business to take a look at Lubuntu Netbook Remix."

Ubuntu: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is Great, But ...
2010-05-12 14:55:07 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

FlossEd.org posted a review on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

"It's time to keep up with the crowd and try the latest Ubuntu. If you haven't tried it yet, you're in for a color-treat. As is often the case with Ubuntu, the Canonical designers have made Lucid Lynx LTS, 10.04's "code" name, visually stunning. And, as usual, if you don't agree, you can change it.

I tested this new Ubuntu release on an HP Desktop (1 year old) with 2 GB of memory and 350 GB HD. I actually upgraded this machine from 8.04 step-by-step (8.10, 9.04, 9.10, 10.04). No glitches."

"This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu Studio 10.04 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge."

Ubuntu: Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS Review
2010-05-10 13:42:51 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Eugenia Loli-Queru of OSNews takes a look at Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS

"The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

The installation is much simpler and more to the point that ever before. I really liked the look and feel of it. In all cases, either installing from scratch (in 2 of my laptops), or upgrading (in the rest 2 of my laptops), everything worked perfectly. I remember back in the day when upgrades occasionally would break X11 etc, but not this time. The only setting that was not preserved was under my husband's account: the "two finger scrolling" setting on the Synaptic mouse panel was reverted to "edge scrolling" after upgrading. No biggie."

Ubuntu: Test-Drive Ubuntu 10.04 Using a Bootable USB Flash Drive
2010-05-07 12:03:35 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

TechSpot posted a guide about setting up Ubuntu 10.04 on a Bootable USB Flash Drive

"So, you've been hearing all this buzz about Ubuntu for a while now and you finally want to take it for a spin? While dual booting Ubuntu with Windows is fairly straightforward, it can seem like a daunting and risky endeavor for the average individual. For those folks, test-driving Ubuntu via the LiveCD is certainly an option, but it comes with a couple major disadvantages: it's a much slower experience, and all your changes are lost once the operating system is restarted.

Besides a traditional installation, you can get around these limitations a few ways, one being with a virtual machine. Naturally, going that route means you'll have to download and install VM software, but this isn't viable for everyone not least because of hardware constraints. Another even simpler way involves creating a bootable USB flash drive with a fully functional copy of Ubuntu installed.

In addition to being speedier and letting you save data, creating a USB boot drive also allows you to take your installation of Ubuntu wherever you go. It should run on any machine that supports booting from USB -- which is just about every semi-modern PC you're bound to come across. It may sound complicated, but fret not, if you already have an Ubuntu CD, you're literally a few clicks away from creating a USB boot drive."

Ubuntu: What's new in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
2010-04-29 23:25:57 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

H Online takes a look at Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

"Ubuntu 10.04 LTS has finally arrived and it includes the latest software and updates, while adding a number of new features and updating the distributions overall look. It's been two years since the release of Ubuntu 8.04, the last Long Term Support (LTS) version of Ubuntu, and users running 8.04 – or even 9.04 and 9.10 for that matter – will definitely notice a wide range of changes and improvements. Canonical CEO Jane Silber says that, "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS challenges the perceptions of the Linux desktop, bringing a whole new category of users to the world of Ubuntu."

Traditionally, the LTS versions focus on optimising overall system stability and usually don't include a lot of new features. The LTS versions of Ubuntu, itself derived from the Debian Linux distribution, are supported for three years for the desktop releases and five years for server releases, while the standard releases are supported for 18 months of updates for both the desktop and server versions. Support for the previous desktop version - 9.10, expires in April 2011."
