Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala is here!
Phew, I was waiting for this. Ubuntu 9.10 has officially launched today. Go take the feature tour and see what it’s basically about if you know nothing about Ubuntu or Linux. So, here we are, 9.10 is here. It came out with three different versions:
- The Desktop Version: The version of Ubuntu meant to run on basically any computer built in the past almost ten years (I’m not joking).
- The Server Edition: This one is meant to run on servers. It has all the required features (MySQL, PHP, Apache) as well as other derivatives
- The Netbook Version: I can’t believe it came out this early, but the fully supported Netbook edition is already out!
- the system is faster and more reliable.
- the booting system looks neater (oh yeah, it looks way nicer)
- the audio system has been completely reconstructed for wider support and better performance
- One Hundred Paper Cuts is up and running, dealing with all your every day annoyances with the system, and helping to solve those annoyances
- Ubuntu One project is also up and running, and with it, you get 2gb of online storage space that you can use with your Ubuntu installation
- Programming is much easier with the use of “Quickly” (should I try this one out? )
- For the netbook users, there’s a new, better interface system
- Empathy is the new messenger. Yes, I have to stress this one. I’m a long time proponent of pidgin and so I’ll have to truly see what Empathy has to offer
- For the SERVER EDITION, Cloud computing has simplified lots with the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC)
- All of the applications, of course, have been updated including OpeOffice, Mozilla Firefox, and others
- The Kubuntu Netbook release will come out pretty soon, very exciting!
- The Technical Overview of Ubuntu 9.10 is complete
