For our Halloween Party I reloaded my netbook back to its original Windows 7 Starter Edition, in order to get Skype to work correctly for my magic mirror costume. Since Halloween is now over I have reloaded it back with Ubuntu and installed the new Ubuntu 10.10, so far it has been great. It installed very quickly and before I knew it I was back up and running. The interface doesn’t appear too different from the previous Ubuntu, but I can definitely tell there is a performance enhancement. It seems to run a lot more stream lined and smoother than before. Of course that may just be that I got used to running Windows on my netbook.
I haven’t had a chance to play with some of the new or advanced features, such as streaming music to my iPhone. But I look forward to playing with these features over the next few days. So far I am very happy with the new version and it has been a breeze. I was able to get all my programs and data moved over and was back up and running in no time. So if you haven’t had a chance to check out the new Ubuntu 10.10, I’d recommend giving it a try.
