Ubuntu Dapper Review

Thursday, June 01, 2006

Written a day before (and in preperation of) the actual Ubuntu 6.06 stable release, this man has written a full review on the last release candiate of Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake. This is a very well written review that also shows one how to install packages, configure the system to your preferences, get Xgl working, and much more! It even got me much motivated to try Ubuntu, once I get my second hard drive back. Overall, the new Ubuntu features include:
* The 386 installation disc uses the LiveCD method for installation
* Faster Boot Time as well as faster Gnome start process
* New Artwork with improved Human theme
* Refined GDM Login Screen
* Better Menu Organization
* Update notifier modified with new look and restart notification dialog box
* Improved Add/Remove application to help new users install applications
* Graphical .deb package installer (gdebi)
* New Log Out Dialog
* Multimedia backend now uses Gstreamer 0.10
* Window Server now uses X-org 7.0
* Gnome 2.14.1
* Support for new hardware (SATA & SATA RAID devices)
* Improved Wireless support
* Improved Plug-n-Play for usb devices
