Ubuntu 9.10Canonical has today announced the release of Ubuntu 9.10, nicknamed Karmic Koala. The latest version offers a faster boot-up experience, revamped audio framework, better disk encryption, improved 3G connectivity and a redesigned login experience. Ubuntu One, a suite of online services, has also been integrated as standard, enabling backup and syncing of files.

Users can activate the Ubuntu One service by launching it from the Applications menu in the GNOME panel. Firefox 3.5 is also included adding the private browsing mode and support for the HTML 5 video element.

The netbook-specific release, the Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix (UNR) can be downloaded here. UNR integrates with the Empathy instant messaging program for text, voice, video, and file transfers. Average boot times are around the 26 second mark, with the Xorg starting in 15-seconds. Canonical has targeted a 10-second boot time for the next major release (Ubuntu 10.04) in 2010.

    As usual, Awesome video! I am looking fraowrd to the video #3 with great impatience. I play old school games like Diablo 1 and 2 and the fact that it is such a hassle to install it on Linux Mint Helena with WINE sometimes discourages me and makes me second guess Linux. When I uninstall it, I can’t access my windows partition anymore and need to reformat completely. Therefore, I really look fraowrd to the video on how to safely uninstall linux. Thanks for all your efforts for the videos

    Couleur naturelle blond méché avec du clair au dessus et devant et foncé sur le dessous.J’aimerai parfois faire un truc mais mon coiffeur refuse de me faire quoique se soit. Alors je patiente, et de toute façon le budget ne suivra pas pour le moment surtout depuis qu’il a augmenté un peu pour le make up! Tiens par contre je me suis acheté un rouge à lèvre Chanel le nouveau, couleur Monte Carlo, il est trooop beau juste coloré et il hydrate bien, je suis très contente!Bonne nuit, je suis à l’ordi car il y a soirée foot chez moi ce soir!
