Related project: Live CD.
I tell my friends and family about Ubuntu and most of them come back telling me that Ubuntu makes their PC run very slow. They didn't know that you had to install Ubuntu to get the true speed.
I think that many people may encounter this problem, because when you run a live session it really just looks like it is installed. Because of the speed these users don't want to use Ubuntu and tell everyone they know that it is very slow.

Global category: Installation.
While I was installing Jaunty, I can't help but thinking if we can get a better installation experience. It start with a plain idea, and I think many of you might have your own suggestion.
I accidentally deleted the "make the installation full screen" suggestion. Apologies, that was not intentional. As of Ubuntu 9.04, the desktop installer already goes full screen when the "Install Ubuntu" option is selected from the CD boot menu. We have no plans to make the installer full screen when running the installer from the live CD desktop (when "Try or Install Ubuntu" is selected) because we want to encourage people to use the live system.
Regarding the slideshow suggestions. This has been a feature we've been trying to nail down for a few releases. Unfortunately it would be best accomplished by the desktop experience team, and they were too busy this release to work on it, so it has been deferred to 9.10.
