Ubuntu 9.04 3D Desktop

Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 alpha6 with the latest updates as of 21 March 2009.
Compiz and cairo-dock are enabled.
The demo was recorded with gtk-recordmydesktop and upload to youtube without changes.

I used a Thinkpad T61p with a nvidia card

The video was recorded at 1920x1200 15fps at the same time as all those apps where running, sometimes it looks a bit sloppy
, but on the screen of the t61p it looked very fluid and smooth.

I think gtk-recordmydesktop
was probably not able to grab all the video glory from the video card.

  2. It is using Miro and the Hulu web site with the pop-out view.

I resized the windows partiton to the minimun necessary (100G), disabled secure boot and I also remove bitlocker key encryption on windows drive, this allows Ubuntu to see that partition and allow windows to boot with secure boot disabled, without complaning.

This makes everything go easier if you want to keep windows arround on the same disk and dual boot with Ubuntu, you should do this it helps a lot. Even after you disable this, you can re-enable it back, both secure boot and bitlocker key encryption.

Before installing on windows updates resize your windows partition, installing all windows updates will not alow you to gain as much space as possible. After resizing the windows partition to the minimium size you want, install all windows updates, bios and driver updates.
