xubuntu yakkety

We’re talking two distros, with the same DNA, almost identical under the hood, tested maybe a week apart, and with such drastic differences in the results. Same hardware, same reviewer, same methods. Let’s see what Xubuntu Yak can do. Nothing too stellar but fair and balanced, like a certain US TV news station or something. On the other hand, Xubuntu was confused around timezones, and wanted me to become a New Yorker. This nonsense even comes with its own transparent shadow border bullshit, and it does not respect the Xfce conventions.

Xubuntu 16.10 Wallpaper

Do you see why the Linux desktop is such an amateurish effort? It’s also not the finest Xubuntu release by a long shot, and the streak of awesome in remains unmatched. We have our first big inconsistency. Same hardware, same reviewer, same methods. Booted fine, pretty and all. I must say I was mildly to positively impressed by the behavior and the results so far, with a fairly elegant and practical live session xubuuntu most if not all of what I would expect.


But it is not so. So much better and faster than Ubuntu. Because Ubuntu did NOT behave well. Screen dimming on inactivity worked as expected. The discovery of network shares and printers yakety also super yakkeyt. No other word for it. Bluetooth worked – kind of. This is just madness. Practical, if slightly boring. I feel as if a weight has dropped off my chest. No issues with the bootloader and the multi-distro plus Windows setup that I run on here be box.

However, Yakkety Xfce does manage a dose of normalcy and quality in the sea of dross.

I’ve had enough with this stupidity. Then, it started getting better and better and better, and soon it became a favorite. The familiar blue color scheme abides. Second, xibuntu Wireless settings were not preserved from the live session but Bluetooth pairings were, and the network died right away. Xubuntu is a strange one.

The desktop launched with two problems. Time to test another Ubuntu hatchling. Seems to work just fine.


It also won high praises from me last year, both in the Xfce competition and the annual best-distro contest. We have it again.

Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak Released. Here’s What’s New

It’s fast and nimble, anything and everything you expect from an operating system. Smooth playback, and you even get media art in Parole, which also shows up nicely in the system area, plus notifications, plus volume control menu.

The partition discovery was fairly long, but after I had selected the root and formatted it, the subsequent refresh was instant, which was not the case with Papa Boontu. Why leave these ugly little things floating about like a favorite turd? This one worked fine, again with many fine differences compared to the Ubuntu Well, we had them network-related hiccups.

Ya,kety made the Bluetooth utility crash.

The default set is decent. It remains Public Enemy No.
