"Even if it's not set as default, the brand new EXT4 filesystem, together with many under-the-hood tweaks, should decrease Ubuntu 9.04's boot time by a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean tens of seconds on some systems. Moving on, the installer process suffered many changes too. First of all, if you choose the "Install" option (rather than booting the Live environment), the installer will be in fullscreen mode. Also, Ubiquity (the Ubuntu installer) will try to auto-detect your keyboard layout and provide the corresponding suggestion as the default choice. Next, you will notice a revamped green and blue timezone map that is rather controversial among users, but is definitely better than the annoying 8.10 one."
