How many distributions should we describe in one magazine?

October is upon us again and apart from Autumn this also means a new release of Ubuntu Linux, the Karmic Koala. Karmic is special not only because of it's rich features and new technologies but because it marks the fifth anniversary of the Ubuntu Linux distribution (Warty, or Ubuntu 4.10, was the first release).

In this issue of Linux Identity Starter, you will find two bootable install DVDs containing Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala and its derivatives: Kubuntu 9.10, Xubuntu 9.10 and Mythbuntu 9.10 for both architectures: 32 & 64-bits. The cool thing about them is that you get the opportunity to test each distribution in a live environment. Furthermore, you can choose to install Ubuntu inside a Windows operating system just like any other application, by using Wubi or directly on your machine, running Linux from its own dedicated partition(s).

Karmic brings about the usual improvements which include the new GNOME version (2.28). It's following suit with the GNOME project itself by replacing Pidgin and Ekiga with the Empathy instant messenger.

So, if you haven't already upgraded, it's time to give the Koala a try.
