Finally, the new version of Kubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Support) is out! Not that I noticed many differences since I kept it constantly dist-upgraded since I put the beta on the desktop and the RC on the laptop. I really like it so far (save minor nags with 3D acceleration that I solved by issuing a couple of shell commands). Also, KDE 3.5.3 packages are already available from 3rd-party repositories. I will be upgrading them soon.
I didn’t use the new live CD installer but from the screenshots it looks quite good. I’ll probably test it soon enough, since I ordered (for free) 5 Kubuntu CDs from Shipit, the free CD delivery services from Canonical.
On the FFXI related news, I did Dyamis-Xarcabard for the first time last Tuesday. The music is nice and a welcome change from the monotonous tone of the other areas. Unluckily no Paladin relic dropped (yet again…. I hate when it’s so rare), and I ended up dying about five times because of the massive links that some pullls generated. Next Tuesday is Dynamis-San d’Oria, perhaps I can hope for the relic hands to drop…
