Kubuntu 20.10 | Installation and First Impressions

Kubuntu is the flavour of Ubuntu which features one of my favourite desktop environments, KDE. The version that will be shipping with this 20.10 release is 5.19.5 and qt version is 5.14.2. The suite of KDE applications have all been updated to 20.08.1 and it ships with an updated Firefox version 81 and the full LibreOffice suite version 7.0. The ISO size is around about 2.5GB making it weigh slightly less than the standard version of Ubuntu 20.10. Kubuntu 20.10 as well as all of the other flavours from Ubuntu now ship with a newer kernel, version 5.8.

As you can see from the video above I was more than happy with the sleek and familiar implementation of KDE that you get with Kubuntu. It has a decent selection of applications installed out of the box including a new music player called Elisa. The overall system is pretty light on recourses too consuming under 700MB at startup.
