Battery in place, Maverick incoming

Posted by anjilslaire on October 9, 2010

Got the new 8cell battery for the Mini 9, and its great. Full charge reports 10:20 battery time, & I think that’s pretty accurate.

Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick is coming tomorrow, and I can’t wait to install & check out the new Unity netbook GUI. I’ve been running the x64 Beta of regular Ubuntu and is pretty slick, so I don’t anticipate many isues with this release.

On that note (and I know I tweeted about it) while we may see the bits already available in some places, its recommended not to grab them until the official release is announced due to last-minute possible  changes. Full details & explanation here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1589308.

I’ll be grabbing the torrent from a local university.

64-bit Ubuntu upgrade

Posted by anjilslaire on September 17, 2010

I’ve finally replaced my aging Athlon XP 3200+ system with a new Dell XPS tower:
AMD Athlon II x4 630
4gigs ram
AMD Radeon 5450 1gig
640gig HDD

Nothing super snazzy, but a huge upgrade for me. It’s dual-booted with a clean install of Win7 home premium x64 & more importantly Ubuntu 10.04×64, which is where the focus of this blog will shift to.
