  • Ubuntu One site
    Just as with Dropbox, files can be manipulated via a website as well as via the file browser. We had no trouble with files, but would get Internal Server Errors when trying to access the Notes and Contacts part of the site. Clearly some work needs to be done on this side of Ubuntu One.

  • Ubuntu Software Center
    Gone is the "Add/Remove Applications" menu entry and in its place is the Ubuntu Software Center. Overall, this is an improvement on the previous Synaptic experience, especially in finding software already installed.

  • Finding software
    The search functionality works a lot better than in Synaptic.

  • 3G USB Support

    Unfortunately I had to fall back from Karmic Beta to Jaunty because of a bug that fixed access to the mass storage device in USB 3G dongles but dropped access to the serial device (modem). Hope they get it fixed in time for release
  • Swap space at end of disk?

    If installing to SSDs, swap space location is immaterial.

    However, on a HDD, the further the swap space is from the apps, the more time penalty it imposes, considering that when it is used, it imposes delays anyway.

    If a whole large partition is being used, it would be better to have swap near the start. If two, in the middle.
