Now in its 10th iteration, Ubuntu 9.04, which supports servers, clients, and netbooks, provides 'faster boot-up times, ensures faster access to a full computing environment on most desktop, laptop and netbook models. Enhanced suspend-and-resume features also give users more time between charges along with immediate access after hibernation. Intelligent switching between Wi-Fi and 3G environments has been broadened to support more wireless devices and 3G cards, resulting in a smoother experience for most users', company representatives say.
Ubuntu has also been popular on netbooks. Canonical says that with 9.04 'For the first time, users can download the complete Ubuntu Netbook Remix to a USB flash drive directly from Ubuntu.com. Users can then install and run Ubuntu Netbook Remix on a wide range of the most popular netbook machines available in the market today.'
Supported until October 2010, anyone upgrading to 9.04? Clean reinstall or upgrade? Is it worth it on a six-month cycle? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
