[News] Previews and Early Looks at Ubuntu and Kubuntu 8.10

Hash: SHA1

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.    



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.


Ubuntu 8.10 Release Candidate Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
