KDE November Updates

Ubuntu 9.10 Feature Tour

Ok, as many others, I’m eagerly waiting to update my Ubuntu box. Ubuntu is surely a great distro, no doubts.

I mean, Email and chat (Empathy, Evolution), Internet (Firefox… could you imagine a linux distro without it..?), Photos (F-Spot…).

Admittedly, the purpouse of the page is also to present Ubuntu to people that are not “geek” or linux experts. Anyway, why not to stress a bit more the specific Ubuntu features?

Just my two cents… 😉
