Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope 9.04 is good.

I have just installed Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope once more, and I will see>how I go with this, I have just installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras and I should be able to play just about any format I want to. My Windows XP installation is playing up so I sacrificed the disk space occupied by Windows 7 and installed Ubuntu Jaunty and now I have a more stable and faster OS than Windows 7. which does not run as well on my machine as Ubuntu. Despite what the computing magazines like PC User like to say, ‘Windows 7, the OS faster than Linux!’ As if. If I run a low latency Preemtive kernel then I should be faster than Windows 7. I have said that hardware is easier to setup on Windows than Ubuntu, but Windows 7 is slower and memory hungry. I just need the Nvidia drivers if I can get them installed and I will be happy. But I think I will leave pulseaudio as it is and just learn to live with it. I will not be using KDE again for a while. <A href=’maps/debian2.jpg’>KDE 2.0</A> this is a better example of a KDE desktop, the KDE 4.* release is too much like Windows 7 in appearance, and it is not necessary for it to emulate the latest versions of Windows, it just needs to be a good window manager with a good file-manager, but now they are re-doing the whole thing and adding the Dolphin file manager instead of using their efforts to just improve the desktop like they did with KDE 3.5 and 3.4, they were good desktops, now it is a mess. I still have Ubuntu 8.10 on my other hard drive, I just want to use 9.04 as well, I was not going to just update over the top of my existing desktop OS, I have quite a cluttered GRUB boot menu now.

Quite cluttered now huh? But this works well I guess, Microsoft would not be able to write software to do this, they would fsck everything up. The Debian crowd can write some good software that is for sure. I love using Linux when everything works.

And
I formatted my / partition with ext4 which is fast and smooth in
operation, faster than NTFS. That is shit.
