Thought it was lame that on a beta forum nobody had bothered to discuss/mention the Ubuntu 9.04 Beta.
As the name suggests, the final will be released next month, site says on the 23rd.

Anyone tried it yet? I thought about it, but figured I'd be better of waiting till its released next month, I'll be less busy by then too...

I guess Win7 washed out Linux from the priorities. I was planning on downloading 9.04 in 3 days, and ordering the disk (mostly to see if this one actually loads on my desktop, and because i ran out of fancy stickers, people at my school seem to love 'em)
I wonder what new features will be included in the final.

Only thing new that I like is the ext4 formatting on install.

What benefits does ext4 have in comparison to ext3?

Great work ubuntu team!

Using it on my laptop, and looks nice, havent found any glitches. Upgraded xUbuntu 8.10>9.04.
I use that laptop only when I'm at school though.
Maybe when it is released, I am going to do a clean install and try out ext4. (H)

Is ext4 available in the installation for 9.04 beta?

If you do custom partitioning during install ext4 is one of the options for the file system.

Believe it or not, by system has an array of different partition types (ReiserFS, JFS, XFS, EXT4, SWAP, and one or two others). When I got to setting up my hard drive for linux I went online and found which partitions needed to be made and their sizes (for performance) and I looked at all the file system types available and picked which one would be best for each partition. For example, /usr and /home both have very different file types - /usr is thousands of small files, while /home is usually much fewer but larger files.

I don't really remember what partitions were for which, but I think that ReiserFS was better for the home directory, and either ext4 or XFS were used for /usr, with different partition types for /boot and /bin (I think).

If you're going to spring to 9.04, I'd suggest doing it now. The RC according to their wiki is pretty much the final release, and unless anything comes up, that's going to be it.

Fair enough. You can always update anyway from RC to RTM

I'll most likely be waiting for the canocial free cd release. Not wasting another DVD to find out its corrupted.

I did on 2 computers, installed at my dads never got to actual use it though and now I am installing it on my laptop. Bit torrent is always the way to go on Ubuntu real releases around when new versions come out. :P

For me the most noticable improvement with 9.04 was how much more user friendly the installation process is.
pcgf340, Ha!, thats a good one.
