About this time in the Maverick development cycle I posted Look before you leap – Kubuntu Maverick (for the record, things were significantly improved by the time Maverick was released, but not great). I’ve been running my netbook on Natty since Alpha 2 and just upgraded my main laptop today. Natty looks pretty good so far. My Kubuntu systems feel faster and I’m so far not seeing any of the stability/performance problems or odd display effects that still trouble my systems on Maverick.
Much improved all the way around. I still recommend looking before you leap (try the system out with a live image to make sure it’s working well), but I’m much more optimistic at this stage of the release cycle than I was last time.
