Canonical releases Ubuntu ‘Maverick Meerkat’


The time has come again for another release of an LTS version of Ubuntu, one of the most popular Linux distributions. Being the 10th of October (10.10 edition), Canonical have seen it fit to unleash the Maverick Meerkat on Linux users and abusers, and this version is apparently the best yet. Personally I have installed the new version and there’s an even simpler idiot-proof installer, and a new custom Ubuntu font, which I have to say, looks very nice. This also comes with a new-look interface which, with the effects on, has the wow factor of a truly modern OS; commercial applications are now integrated into a new Software Centre. Just like the previous edition, Canonical is embracing the cloud with Ubuntu One with 2GB of free cloud storage for each and every penguin out there. Notably, there is also mobile access on Androids and iPhones, as well as a music sync function to said devices.

The Netbook Remix edition also includes the new ‘Unity’ interface, designed specifically for smaller screened devices that even includes support for touch gestures – click through for a short demonstration video.
