Ubuntu and Kubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu and Kubuntu 9.04
The popular Ubuntu Linux is a favorite for home users as well as the business desktop set. Ubuntu offers stability, excellent community support, and a clear, uncluttered user interface. This month's DVD comes with both Ubuntu 9.04 and the popular Kubuntu variant on a double-sided disc.
The 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope" release features faster boot times, an innovative notification app, and several new tools, including the PulseAudio music server. If you prefer the Gnome desktop, try Ubuntu. If you favor KDE, start with the Kubuntu side. A built-in Live boot option lets you boot the system from the DVD and test drive Jaunty Jackalope without disturbing the contents of your hard drive.

Kubuntu comes with KDE 4.2 and an equivalent collection of KDE-based desktop tools

Place this DVD in the drive and restart your system. If your computer doesn't start, make sure your BIOS is configured to boot from a DVD. Enter the BIOS setup menu (see your vendor documentation), make sure DVD boot is enabled, and make sure the DVD drive appears before the hard drive in the boot order.
This DVD is a double-sided disc. A DVD device always reads the side of the disc that is facing down. This DVD is labeled like a normal DVD – the label you see as you place the disk into the tray applies to the data on the opposite side. For instance, if you are installing the 32-bit version, the 32-bit label should be facing up in the tray.
