Shooting for the Perfect 10.10 with Maverick Meerkat

,----[ Quote ]
| Our mascot for 10.10 is the Maverick 
| Meerkat.
| This is a time of change, and weâre not 
| afraid to surprise people with a bold move 
| if the opportunity for dramatic 
| improvement presents itself. We want to 
| put Ubuntu and free software on every 
| single consumer PC that ships from a major 
| manufacturer, the ultimate maverick move. 
| We will deliver on time, but we have huge 
| scope for innovation in what we deliver 
| this cycle. Once we have released the LTS 
| we have plenty of room to shake things up 
| a little. Letâs hear the best ideas, 
| gather the best talent, and be a little 
| radical in how we approach the next two 
| year major cycle.


Ubuntu 10.10 to be codenamed Maverick Meerkat

| Ubuntu 10.04 is a long-term support 
| release, which means that the focus during 
| the current development cycle has largely 
| been on stabilization and refining the 
| existing technology. Shuttleworth says 
| that we can expect to see a return to 
| experimentation in the 10.10 release, with 
| the potential for some radical changes.
| Some of the most important goals include 
| delivering a new Ubuntu Netbook Edition 
| user interface, improving the Web 
| experience, boosting startup performance, 
| and extending social network integration 
| on the desktop. Shuttleworth also hopes to 
| advance Ubuntu's cloud support by 
| simplifying deployment and making it 
| easier to manage cloud computing 
| workloads.


Final Decision For Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Window Controls Placement Announced By Mark Shuttleworth

,----[ Quote ]
| Mark Shuttleworth announced seconds ago 
| that the Metacity window controls will 
| remain on the left in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 
| (Lucid Lynx), however the order will 
| change to: close, minimize, maximize.
