Ubuntu Light review

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Light is an alternative OS designed to sit on a separate partition to a PC's Windows operating system. With a look and feel that'll be familiar to users of Ubuntu Netbook Remix – whose Unity interface has now been rolled out across all versions of Ubuntu – it's neither full featured nor powerful. But it is fast.

So fast, in fact, that there's no real comparison with the Windows start-up time on the same AMD Athlon II-powered Dell Inspiron M101z laptop with 4GB RAM.

This took two to three minutes to boot and surf to a web page with Windows 7 Home Premium. Canonical says users with hard-disk drives in their systems should expect 20 seconds boot time. On our Dell with its stock Seagate Momentus 320GB hard disk?

Some are functional and feature-packed, others aim to deliver the best visual experience. The 10 Android Wear watch face packs we have below belong to the latter category. Check them out! Read more
