Initially I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a given machine (original 64b official release). Install from scratch. I then applied the various updates.
Then, a friend with the exact same hardware, memory etc... as mine, decided she wants Ubuntu on it. So I made a CD from the official release a week ago, and noticed the version is not
10.04 anymore, it is now
Googling a bit, some posts on various forums related this difference and basically concluded that
10.04.1 = 10.04 + [all updates since the beginning]
But using her Ubuntu and mine is not the same experience, 10.04.1 looks better
- the default theme changed (darker, windows nice buttons on top left, ...)
- the Gnome interface answers faster, and some small annoying bugs disappeared (like huge latency in menus etc...)
All in all, many things work better, and faster.
question Is there really a difference having
10.04.1 > 10.04 + [all updates since the beginning]
Meaning the regular updates could/did not fix some internal features/settings?
The new defaults are more appropriate (like kernel settings) and make the system work more smoothly?
Did anyone notice such a difference?
