Canonical Announces Availability of Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop Edition
"Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop Edition delivers a range of feature enhancements to improve the user experience. Shorter boot speeds, some as short as 25 seconds, ensure faster access to a full computing environment on most desktop, laptop and netbook models. Enhanced suspend-and-resume features also give users more time between charges along with immediate access after hibernation. Intelligent switching between Wi-Fi and 3G environments has been broadened to support more wireless devices and 3G cards, resulting in a smoother experience for most users."

"Additional improvements on the desktop include improved suspend and resume capability on notebooks as well as additional support for 3G and Wi-Fi mobile connectivity.

First Look at Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
"In these times of a lame-duck release of Windows (Vista), Ubuntu has been earning a reputation as a reliable and simple operating system that allows its users to get things done. Amongst the Internet intelligentsia, Ubuntu has become a realistic operating system choice, alongside Windows and OS X. Dell recently embraced Ubuntu as an option on its desktops and notebooks, placing the operating system on the same commercial footing as Windows, too."
