Ladies and Gentlemen, it's the 1st of June 2006 and right on schedule, Ubuntu 6.06 has been released! This is certainly the most anticipated Linux Distribution release this year, and with good reason. This release makes a significant improvement over earlier versions and also sports a new, beautiful graphical look and feel. One of the biggest complaints about earlier versions was that the default Ubuntu look was, well, a bit ugly. Look's like the developers have paid heed, and while the desktop is still GNOME, the colour scheme is now orange, not brown, and has a new graphics engine, which is full of animations and shine and polish. This release is also important as it comes with an extended support period. Uptil now, each release would receive patches and security updates for 18 months. Dapper Drake will get them for at least five years. This is part of the push to give Ubuntu a greater presence in enterprise. Now, enough said. Go look at some screenshots and when you're done with that, go and download the CD, or if you're willing to wait a month, order free CDs.
