Ubuntu 9.04 frankenreview

| It's official: Ubuntu has taken over the Linux world. On Digg's Linux/Unix 
| section at the time of writing, four of the top five upcoming stories are 
| about Jaunty (with the other one being a TuxRadar story on programming the 
| Arduino - w00t!). In fact, 11 of the top 15 are about Ubuntu, which is 
| astonishing in a week where Oracle gobbled up OpenOffice.org and MySQL and 
| the first full release of the hotly hyped Ulteo came out.

| Every so often I take a stab at Linux, to see exactly what I like and do not

| run on my overloaded hardware, or the occasional driver that makes the OS
| impossible to use without hand-tweaking something or other. That said, I
| seriously like the Ubuntu 8.10 implementation and will now install it
| permanently on my latest machines. It's a winner.

I don't think it was exciting even in 2001. It was a Win2k with Tellytubby
gown.

KDE4 with 3D effects -- now /that's/ exciting.
