    Re: Why is 10.04 UNR not LTS?

    I tried to install the standard 10.04 on my Dell mini 9. I could not do so, kept getting errors that I needed a different kernel. I installed UNR with no problems.

    [ubuntu] Re: Get rid of GRUB!

    I don't think so. Yes, the splash and new gnome will affect the speed of the system load, but that would manifest itself after the menu selection and before the login screen. If I had to guess, and...

    [ubuntu] Re: Get rid of GRUB!

    Let's not assume. If you upgraded from 9.04 you are probably using grub-legacy. If you did a fresh install of 9.10 then you are probably using grub2. How did you get to 9.10?
