Hi All,

Just read that Ubuntu 5.10 and Kubuntu 5.10 are available now (right on schedule).

Kubuntu comes with the latest KDE 3.4.3 and a new package manager, called Adept.

I was also impressed with the download speed yesterday evening!

Last weekend, I tried to download the new SUSE Linux 10 and it took me ages. Yesterday, within 30 Minutes I downloaded the ISO and know I am a happy Ubuntu user.

SUSE Linux 10 is still installed on my second hardddrive, but I will replace it with Mandriva 2006. SUSE Linux looks really nice (especially the bootsplash), but I have to many problems with it:

1. It did not setup my monitor correctly. The H-Frequency is 28-63 but in YaST you can only select frequencies 30+. So I had to edit the xorg.conf file manually. That's not very user friendly!

2. Was I nightmare to install Eclipse. Had to download it from one of the very slow mirrors. Then I few libraries were missing (not included in CD Edition)

Has anybody experience with Madriva Linux 2006? Is it worth downloading it?

Thanks,
Marco
