[News] Early Review of Ubuntu 9.04 (Alpha)

Hash: SHA1

Another Look at Ubuntu 9.04 

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, Ubuntu 9.04 is shaping up to be a promising new release.   Combined 
| with improvements on the backend like ext4 as a file-system option, the 
| updates to Jaunty’s look will make Ubuntu a more efficient and attractive 
| operating system.   



Taking Ubuntu 9.04 Out For A Spin

| The best thing I noticed about Ubuntu 9.04 so far is how fast it is. The
| developers weren’t lying when they talked about speed, this thing is FAST.
| Even though I installed it on an older machine, you wouldn’t notice it
| because even with an older processor, Jaunty is probably the most responsive
| version I’ve ever used.


Jaunty Alpha 5 released

| Welcome to Jaunty Jackalope Alpha-5, which will in time become Ubuntu 9.04.
| Pre-releases of Jaunty are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
| system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
| frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and
| those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

Ubuntu 9.04's New Login Screen

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 9.04 is getting closer and closer to the final release and we thought
| that it would be nice to give you guys a sneak peek at some of the upcoming
| features. The new version of Ubuntu will be released in less than two months,
| on April 23rd, and it will be dubbed Jaunty Jackalope. One of these new
| features was introduced with tonight's updates and it is a brand new login
| screen a.k.a. GDM (GNOME Display Manager) theme, which is black and has a
| nice Ubuntu logo in the right bottom corner. The new login screen is
| entitled "Human" and it was created by Kenneth Wimer and Mat Tomaszewski for
| Canonical.

| minute delays) while the final alpha will be out in mid-March. The final
| release of Ubuntu 9.04 is scheduled for the 23rd of April.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
