Ubuntu Linux 9.04 has been released and available for download ( jump to download link ). Ubuntu Linux is a community-based Linux distribution. The latest release of Ubuntu brings the best open source technologies together on one platform, with the benefit of free updates for 18 months. Also announced were the simultaneous releases of Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition and Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix (UNR).


From the website:

Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop Edition delivers a range of feature enhancements to improve the user experience. Shorter boot speeds, some as short as 25 seconds, ensure faster access to a full computing environment on most desktop, laptop and netbook models. Enhanced suspend-and-resume features also give users more time between charges along with immediate access after hibernation. Intelligent switching between Wi-Fi and 3G environments has been broadened to support more wireless devices and 3G cards, resulting in a smoother experience for most users.

What’s new in Ubuntu 9.04

  • Ubuntu 9.04 includes the latest GNOME 2.26 desktop environment.
  • Brasero is now the default disc burning utility in Nautilus.
  • The latest X.Org server, version 1.6, is available in Jaunty. The latest Mesa 3D DRI, version 7.4, is also available.
  • Included in Jaunty is a simple menu which can be used to set preferences for notification icons, such as where they pop up on the taskbar.
  • A number of improvements to the Ubuntu start-up process bring significantly improved boot performance to Ubuntu 9.04.
  • Linux kernel 2.6.28.
  • Ext4 filesystem support.

Ubuntu 9.04 Download

You can download Ubuntu Linux 9.04 via the web/ftp server or via BitTorrent (recommended).

32 bit vs 64 bit version

  • For almost all PCs select 32 bit version. For e.g., most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors.
  • Choose 64 bit version to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead.

  1. I recommend doing the new installation of 9.04. I tried the upgrade route and had problems with my Nvidia card and issues with X and OpenGL/Mesa libraries. I could not effectively clean this up. After backing my data and starting a fresh install, I was really impressed by both the speed of the install and the speed of the boot-up. Very fast! YMMV

    BTW – 9.04 is slick!

    This is Bala and I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop with Nvidia Graphics adapter and the system is not able to be boot properly and hangs on everytime I need to go the grub to force my computer to boot at the particular kernel to make the system go live and upon certain time , it says that Nvidia not detected properly and it will run in low graphics mode and so could you please help me resolve this issue at the Earliest…. I would be thankful and grateful to you for your able guidance and if you could please mail to my email id, I would be more glad and thankful to you… Thanks in advance

  3. I did three installs of UBUNTU, and the first, I had do do over. One on 64bit XP-Fedora-Ubuntu, the second on a 64bit Fedora11-Ubuntu, and the third on an XP-Fedora-Ubuntu (32bit) system.

    Well, the reason I had do redo one setup was that I wanted EXT4, and discovered that grub and the boot partition is not yet ready for ext4. Therefore /boot should remain ext3.

    Everywhere else where EXT4 can be used was OK.

  4. I love Ubuntu but I think it have boot problem. I install Ubuntu 8.10 in USB stick and it work well in later Bios support system. But some older system that don’t support form USB make booting problem. I think most of user like me have same problem too. Some website and supporter tell make USB boot CD but it can’t work well. So I think developer of the Ubuntu make and emphasize to make boot process smooth for basic user. Thank you all. And I still love in Ubuntu.

  5. I’m very pleased with Ubuntu 9.04 except that I can’t play DVDs (uk) with Movie Player or Dragon Nothing happens.. Can anyone advise?

    Thanks – John

  6. Dileep,
    I have used my XP box as a gateway to the internet for multiple Ubuntu laptop and desk top P.C.s (wired and wireless) but so far I have been unsuccessful in print , file or drive sharing with any Windows P.C.
    I know people are working to make this simple for us so just keep trying and talk to the developers. They are doing a fine job so be patient.
