,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) was officially released yesterday.  Boosh!!  
| Often with each new release comes a spike in the number of people who are 
| trying it out for the very first time.  So to help the new users out, I’ve 
| written this guide to introduce you to this popular Linux-based operating 
| system and some of the cool software you can install on it.    


Ubuntu 8.10 Charges Up the Mountain

,----[ Quote ]
| The hot story-of-the-week this week is, of course, the ninth release of the 
| popular Ubuntu Linux distribution, officially designated Ubuntu 8.10 but far 
| more recognizable by its colorful code-name, Intrepid Ibex. The release comes 
| with much more than just a flashy name, though.   



Kubuntu 8.10 'Intrepid Ibex' Beta Screenshots Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| I took these screenshots using a Kubuntu Intrepid Beta installation after
| performing a full dist-upgrade, at 1280x1024, with the nVIDIA 173 driver
| installed. I left all the settings in applications default, but I had to make
| fonts smaller and resize windows (in Konqueror for example), because they
| didn't look very well as default. The default theme used is Oxygen.

| The release candidate version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid
| Ibex), which is scheduled for launch in late October this year, arrived a few
| hours ago and, as usual, we intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest
| changes in the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared with the beta release, which
| brought Firefox 3.0.3, PAM authentication framework and a BBC plugin for
| Totem, this version comes with two brand new and useful tools: a System
| Cleaner and a USB Startup Disk Creator.


Preview: Ubuntu/Kubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid Ibex”

,----[ Quote ]
| As a whole, I think the Ubuntu and Kubuntu teams deserve a giant pat on the
| back.  While I was only looking at a beta here, I think I will be making the
| jump over the weekend to Kubuntu.  I am a longtime Ubuntu user and I still
| like Ubuntu a lot, but I think it’s time to give the latest KDE a shot!


My Intrepid Desktop

| As an added bonus, it’s my understanding that new kernel now supports some
| broadcom wifi cards out of the box. I have not yet installed on anything
| using broadcom, but I did install the proposed kernel in hardy on another
| system with broadcom and all seems well there. I look forward to trying
| Intrepid on a macbook. I believe that could be a marriage of great hardware
| and design with a great OS.


Review : Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex"

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall Ubuntu 8.10 is a well polished desktop Linux distribution , though
| not radically different from earlier version 8.04 of Ubuntu. Features like
| Tabbed Browsing in Nautilus , Encrypted Folders , better Hardware
| support ,being faster etc are reason compelling enough to Upgrade to the
| latest offering from Ubuntu team.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
