Ubuntu 11.04 is OUT!

Well, it’s been a crazy six months but Ubuntu’s latest Operating System (OS) is available today! It’s Ubuntu 11.04 (‘Natty Narwhal’) and it’s quite a change from the tradition look that people have come to expect from Ubuntu.

I have been testing this since the Alpha 1 release (I installed the Alpha 3 release as my everyday system) and, while it’s been a wild ride, the finished product is absolutely amazing to use and stunning to look at! One of the biggest changes is in the different versions. There is no longer a netbook version or a desktop version. There is just one interface - Unity - for all devices; desktops, netbooks, tablets, etc. Yes, you read that right, even tablets. Ubuntu 11.04 ships with the new uTouch technology that allows you to touch the screen to manipulate your system (if your system hardware has this feature).

I’m not going to write a long post about it but encourage you all to go over to OMG! Ubuntu to look their wonderful page dedicated Natty. It’s full of screenshots, videos and helpful tips for working with the latest version of Ubuntu.

So, if you are needing a new computer experience but can’t (or don’t want to) spend the money on a new computer, I highly recommend giving Ubutnu 11.04, the Natty Narwhal, a spin. You’ll be glad you did!

In the Love of the Three in One,
