I just installed it via wubi and all I have to say WOW! This baby REALLY moves. I will say there is at least a 20-30% increase in speed and performance. Hell, EVERYTHING is fast! I am going to get bootchart and see what it says but I can say this, 8.10 took about 30 seconds to boot, this takes less than that!

Agreed. Also, I just had almost 10+ seconds shaved off of my boot times.

Check your System specs... :rolleyes:

Even on my old, crappy computer it boots in less than 30 sec.

Desktop to desktop?

If I understand that correctly he means shutdown then restert back into Windows...and thats not so bad, depending on how much he has starting up when he boots.

The fastest board I saw was Biostar TA790GXB A2+ and from hard restart (notice I didn't sad from power up) to bootloader needs approx. 2 seconds. My boards needs 10-11 seconds

Hm.. not bad. Not bad at all. I do not know exactly the boot times but I will let you all know once I put bootchart onto it.

Jaunty is awesome. I'm using it right now and I am definitely impressed. For fun I installed CrossOver's Game app (Wine based) to install Steam and HL2. I'm gettng an average of 80FPS at 1680x1050. For running a game off Wine, that is AWESOME. In Windows I get almost triple that but the point is, Linux is finally becoming very user friendly. Even NVidia drivers are part of the base install, no more looking for crap. Everything is working. My Creative XFi card, Compiz desktop (Really wish Windows had something similar) , I can view my other NTFS drives, Ubuntu Jaunty is badass.

Heres a screenshot:



Native games from companies like id play VERY well under Linux. I'm planning to install Doom 3 and finally beat it. Its nice to run a different OS and be able to play games that aren't supposed to work, it makes you feel bad, in a good way :p. Now, playing native games under Linux is just fun. I wish more game companies would make games Linux friendly. id and Epic did it, other companies should follow.

I love 9.04. For a newly released OS, it is damn stable. I remember when 8.04 was released and I had SO many problems. I went in and waited for about 3 months and I have been upgrading since. I have tried all the Alphas of 9.04 and each one was more stable than the last. I cannot wait to see the Year of the Linux Desktop :D

I've been playing with Ubuntu since 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog) and its become a MUCH better distro over the years. Even from 5.04 Ubuntu has always been the easiest for me to get working right. SuSE is a close second. Fedora would be my third and nothing else is worth trying. Even Mandriva has become washed IMO. Ubuntu is a great Linux OS for newcomers, especially with 9.04. It took me less than an hour to get everything in my screenshot above working. That includes installing HL2 and getting my sound working. I couldn't say that 3-4 years ago with Ubuntu. :)

You can't just use Wine straight up?
And you get 3x fps in windows on that game (yes I know, just that game)?
I know its getting somewhere but I was really hoping the fps lost wouldn't be that much in source games.

Either way, this is going on my new Netbook very soon.

A game that is designed to run 100% on Windows will definitely take a performance hit. Because Wine does not run DX9 very well (which is what source uses) the performance hit is pretty big. Anything over 60FPS is really good for Wine. Also, I tried Wine before trying CrossOver Games and the framerate was horrible. Talking about 20-30fps. In CrossOver Games I hit 200+ FPS but get an average of about 80-100 or so.

i've just installed 9.04 a few nights ago and I'm learning it right now.

For my first taste of Linux this is going pretty smoothly so far. I like it. the desktop cube effect is real neat.

So far its pretty neat, but a little confusing. Needs some getting use to. The files aren't arranged like windows where we have program files, and then a list of files all in one place.

But every thing installed in located nicely in Applications and sorted by type.

I feel Linux is getting closer and closer to being able to replace Windows on worstations and Home PC's.

The reason why it is arranged like that is because of the way UNIX (which is what it is based off of) orders its files. Mac organizes them the same way. If you go and find out what each make directory is for, you find it is very well thought out. The way windows does things is a mess and things are everywhere. Linux, every streamlined and laid out well.

i've just installed 9.04 a few nights ago and I'm learning it right now.

For my first taste of Linux this is going pretty smoothly so far. I like it. the desktop cube effect is real neat.
I love Compiz and I had my first takes of linux about 2-3 years ago and I went cold turkey from windows! Took me about a week to get use to it, but after that, I started tinkering and before I knew it, I never wanted to use windows again. I had it installed on T43 which was bogged down by XP. Ubuntu changed that :D. No I am using all 3 of the big bros (Linux, Mac, Windows).


I feel Linux is getting closer and closer to being able to replace Windows on worstations and Home PC's.
I agree and cannot wait till it is. The dream the Linux Community world wide will be happy and jump with joy!

I like putting linux on my moms laptop and telling her I upgraded it. I do it every couple of months.

Sometimes it is a pain though when they can't simply install windows programs like they normally would in windows. Like a tax program.

But linux is getting there. Soon it will be so good people will be like "$$$ for windows? teh gay" even if it is win7.
