Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), Reviewed In Depth

An anonymous reader writes "I came across this heavy-duty review of Ubuntu 11.04 today. It covers basically every aspect of the new release from installation to post-install essentials. The new Unity interface is broken down into its individual elements and explained ad nauseam. Overall the article is objectively balanced, the author does a good job of pointing out specific design flaws and shortcomings instead of complaining about how Unity doesn't work for him specifically. The walkthrough of the uTouch gesture language is exciting (wish I had multi-touch), though a full listing of keyboard and mouse shortcuts come in handy, too. Towards the end of the article there are benchmarks between Lucid, Natty with Unity, and Natty with the Classic interface. The performance of the Unity interface isn't bad at all, but that kernel power issue does rear its ugly head. Pretty much everything about the new Ubuntu in one article — an interesting and informative, if not long read."
