Ubuntu Linux Feisty Fawn Released!

Canonical released Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, their latest edition of their insanely popular Linux distribution today.

I’m planning to replace Windows XP with Ubuntu as the main operating system on my laptop. I’ll still run WinXP in a VMWare Server virtual machine for my (ever-decreasing) must-have Windows applications.

I’ve used Ubuntu for a few years and, when I installed Edgy Eft on my office desktop PC and spent a few days poking and tweaking, it totally spoiled me.

It’s even more of a pain to use WinXP now.

One thing I love about Ubuntu is the intuitive and powerful standard interface. Now, with the development of projects like Compiz and Beryl, it’s possible to have an even slicker looking, more productive, desktop environment.

What’s my favorite thing about Linux and Ubuntu? Freedom, baby, freedom!

Heck, Ubuntu will even ship you free CDs if you don’t have a way to download and burn them yourself.

Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. “Ubuntu” is an ancient African word, meaning “humanity to others”. The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.
