Karmic Koala: That's One Seriously Fast Marsupial

Filed under
Ubuntu

Even though Ubuntu’s servers were absolutely hammered today, I was able to download and test out the latest 9.10 Karmic Koala beta.

While I would consider Karmic Koala to be an evolutionary improvement rather than a revolutionary one over Jaunty Jackalope and Intrepid Ibex where functionality is concerned, I can certainly see where a great deal of the development time went, and that is raw performance.

I used Sun xVM VirtualBox 3.06 to create a Virtual Machine using the 64-bit version of Karmic Koala, with two vCPUs, 2GB of RAM and a 40GB virtual disk file.
