I find 10.04.2 LTS a very good desktop operating system, Lots of software available and easy to install.

It's been very stable for me and works well on my laptop.

Pros: Intuitive install and handling
Cons: none found


Installed it on one of my test systems, the install went without a hitch. At the time I needed to quick-test somethng on a clean install. Other than Arch that needs wall-to-wall attention during install, Ubuntu takes you tru the usual "questionaire" (wizard) and does its thing - by itself.

My setup blocked when I had to set the screensaver, but that was maybe due to the box, rarther than the OS.

Tested box : Compaq E51/1G/80G - the video MAY not have been configured right, that's all...

All in all THE step-in OS if you need a good first-time impression of Linux, and a keep-this if you stay into Linux...

Pros: Stable, it just works!
Cons: Nothing significant


I've been using this version of Ubuntu on my Core2-Duo desktop for over a year now and I still love it. Installation was very straight-forward using the GUI installer. Everything just works as it should and I've only had one major lock-up (which turned out to be a hardware problem). Once you install the proprietary driver for the graphics card, Compiz and Emerald you have all the eye-candy you could wish for. Software installation is a breeze, either using apt, Synaptic, or the Ubuntu Software Centre app. Highly recommended.
