Ubuntu Karmic Koala Released


The latest version of Ubuntu, version 9.10 also known as Karmic Koala has been released.  If you are a fan of Ubuntu, get your copy.  If you don't know what Ubuntu is, it's one of the easiest to use Linux distributions out there - for the average person.  Here is an online preview of the features.

The new desktop is built around “Ubuntu One,”a collection of backup, note and contact synchronization and file-sharing services integrated into the operating system, offering 2 Gigabytes of free storage and more by subscription.

Some new Ubuntu features for the deasktop include:
  • Ubuntu One - An umbrella name for an exciting suite of online services
  • Quickly toolset - Helps developers automate mundane functions and package code
  • Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix (UNR) - Improving netbook and small machine experience
  • Faster, simplified, better-looking boot experience for most users
  • Audio revamp allowing improved sound control across multiple applications
  • Firefox 3.5: latest, fastest, most secure web browser yet from Mozilla
I've used Ubuntu on and off and it functions well as a general desktop system.  It's free and it works well right out of the box for most online activities.  Looks like Windows 7 won't be he only OS to keep people busy.

Do you use Ubuntu?  Have you already tried Ubuntu?  Let me know what you think of it.
