My first impressions of Ubuntu-9.10-rc-desktop-i386 Alpha release

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha on a Virtual Machine with Sun’s VirtualBox. Installing 9.10 is very similar to installing previous versions of Ubuntu. It also can be set to dual boot Windows and other Operating System with the GRUB boot loader that is installed when you install Ubuntu. I find the start up screens, and the wallpaper to be nicer. Ubuntu also seem to added a few wallpapers. It starts up and shutdown pretty quick to. The biggest improvement is the software install and uninstall tool. It is very easy to use. It is not too different from Ubuntu 9.04. The wallpaper for 9.10 also seems nicer then prevous versions of Ubuntu. I notice the Icons and Wallpaper to look better. I can’t wait for the official Ubuntu 9.10 to be released in less then 10 days.

Most Improve feature is the Software Center Applications because it makes installing and removing unwanted software.
