Ubuntu 11.04 Released

Quote:
Sticking to its 6-month cycle, the Ubuntu team has today let loose its Natty Narwhal aka Ubuntu 11.04, the latest version of the (reasonably) popular open source Linux distribution. This release comes has the Unity interface replacing GNOME, as well as other goodies.

Among those goodies are the new, configurable launcher (found on the left-hand side of the screen), the fresh dash which brings together everything from documents and applications to music and video files, a workspace manager, full touchscreen support, an enhanced Software Center (now enables users to rate and review apps), an upgraded Ubuntu One cloud service, and, of course, updated software packages.

I wonder if it will finally have support for broadcom chips. Wifi has yet to work on any of my computers.
If they can fix that, I can finally run it on my laptop for coding as I can avoid the clutter of Windows...

First Look: Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) Beta 1

By Adrian Kingsley-Hughes | April 1, 2011, 5:12am PDT


Canonical have unveiled the beta 1 of the latest incarnation of its Linux operating system - Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal). Time to take it for a test spin.
Check out the Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) image gallery!
Since this is a beta it is not intended for real usage, and neither is it fair to carry out a full review. So I’ll jsut go as far as to say that the installation was short and sweet. I particularly liked the way that I could enter details such as time zone info, keyboard choice, and user name/password while the install was going on in the background. It’s an interesting twist and a handy way to save time during the install.

Here’s a quick what’s new:
  • Ubuntu 11.04 beta 1 features Linux kernel 2.6.38, Gnome 2.32, Compiz 0.9.4 and Xserver 1.10.
  • New Unity interface.
  • Firefox 4, Banshee 1.9.5 and LibreOffice 3.3.2 installed as default.
  • Ubuntu Software Center features review and rating system for applications.
  • Windows snapping by dragging windows to screen edges (a la Windows 7).
  • Imporoved multi-touch support.
  • New wallpapers.

Moving right along

Hope you have better luck with it then I had with the first. Couldn't even get it to install and boot up on an Intel or AMD system.

I'll wait until the Linux Mint version comes along. I find that even more idiot proof than Ubuntu (which it's based on)
I don't have the time or the energy right now to really try to learn Linux and Mint's aim seems to make everything happen through the GUI.
I reckon that Ubuntu and Mint are both striving for that stage.
There will always be command line enthusiasts but similar to; and better than, Windows, is the way to market share.

Although a long time Ubuntu user myself, I'm not real sure of this new push for the Unity desktop. I realize that I can go back to Gnome classic...but unless things improve radically with Unity, I think 11.04 is going to be a skip release and I'll wait for 11.10.

Yea it's a pain in the arse with it on my netbook. It's pretty temperamental whether WiFi will work. It works for a bit at first then just full on breaks.

Just remember the lack of broadcom support is more of a problem with broadcom rather than with Ubuntu or Linux. It's funny to me, that broadom NIC's are very common on servers and work great with Linux...but their wireless cards on the other hand....they don't seem to release drivers or information on....thus they don't in the Linux world.
