Few days back I installed Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala. Its main features include Kernel 2.6.31, ext4 and GRUB2 default and GNOME 2.28. It includes new versions of Firefox 3.5 and Open Office 3.1 as well as collaborative working tools with the Amazon EC2 API and Enterprise Cloud Ubuntu .. In addition, startup screens have been modified, adding noticeable graphical improvements in the "boot splash", which is now based on X.
Installing Applications in Ubuntu is now easier than ever with new software center of Ubuntu. Inspired by similar applications such as Apple Store or Android Market, Ubuntu Software Center makes it easy to search, download, installation and maintenance of programs for Ubuntu.
For the rest comes with numerous improvements, one of which is the new starting system that accelerates the process well, both have changed the animation of the icon bar by a white Ubuntu lasting a few seconds. In addition, new kernel with new devices supported.
Issues with VLC
I do not know what mania that we have to use VLC to watch the videos. I have changed the way of alerting the GNOME Screensaver (screensaver) that there is a multimedia application running and VLC not working well and skip the screensaver. To me this is a rather serious error, than the more ordinary mortals, displaying the screensaver in the middle of a film is enough reason to choose another operating system.
