So I finally got UNR 9.10 installed cleanly on the Mini 9. It runs beautifully, with noticeably faster boot times and a generally smoother experience in the GUI. Also, i notice that the wireless connects much more quickly this time around. I suspect that there has been some improvements to network-manager. Either way, it’s great.
Also, the /home partition is easily encrypted with just a simple checkbox during install. Security & speed. Can’t ask for much more than that 🙂

I installed the UNR 9.10 the other day, as an in-place upgrade, as 9.10 didn’t want to get to a full desktop on my Mini 9. It does boot up with acpi off and a couple of other incantations, however.
It’s snazzy, but I’ll hold off on opinions until after I’ve done a clean install this week. Stay tuned.
