Re: [PLUG] [plug-announce] Tuesday, Oct 11, 2011 - Introducing Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot" presented by Elizabeth Krumbach (PLUG North@CoreDial in Blue Bell)

I have been running 11.10 and it is very stable.  My favorite new
feature is that the Ubuntu kernel is at last compiled to include
support for transparent huge pages.  My laptop has definitely been
perkier since I  modified /etc/default/grub to add this to

kbhaskar@bhaskarks:~$ diff /etc/default/grub{~,}
> GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash transparent_hugepage=always"

Then I ran update-grub and rebooted.

The other thing that 11.10 did is to make me appreciate KDE. I won't
say that the Ubuntu shell is unfit for human consumption, but I will
say that perhaps this dog is too old to learn new tricks and
appreciate all that it does for me.  Transparent huge pages
subjectively feels as if it more than makes up for the additional
ponderousness that KDE has over Gnome.
