Ubuntu Ibex Alpha 6 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| This alpha 6 release is shipped with the latest Gnome 2.23.92, which is a
| testing and development series for the upcoming Gnome 2.24. Hopefully, we can
| see the 2.24 in action in the beta release of Ubuntu Ibex.



Review: Xubuntu 8.10 'Intrepid Ibex' Alpha 6

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're planning on gaming on an older machine but have an affection for
| Ubuntu, then Xubuntu is an obvious choice. Games these days eat quite a lot
| of resources, and with LCD screens almost enforcing you to use native
| resolutions your older machine will be working overtime to pump out the
| pixels. From what I've seen, Xubuntu is stable even at this stage of
| development (just over a month to go to the final version) and I'd recommend
| it to anyone with an older machine who is wanting to access the new goodies
| in the Ibex repositories.

| Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 6 has been released as the final alpha build for Intrepid
| Ibex. This release ships with the latest GNOME 2.24 and Linux 2.6.27 bits
| along with X Server 1.5.0. Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 6 also supports Samba 3.2 with
| clustered file server support, encrypted network transport, IPv6 support, and
| better integration with recent versions of Microsoft Windows clients and
| servers. Another package addition to Ubuntu is the pam-auth-update-tool,
| which is a management interface for PAM authentication on both desktops and
| servers.

| Delayed one day, the fifth alpha version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10
| (codename Intrepid Ibex), which is scheduled for release in late October this
| year, was made available a few hours ago and, as usual, we intend to keep you
| up-to-date with the latest changes in the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared
| with the fourth alpha, which brought Private Directory Encryption, Guest
| sessions and a better Network Manager tool, this version comes with Linux
| kernel 2.6.27, GNOME 2.24 Beta 2, X.Org 7.4 and DKMS, a new tool that
| automatically rebuilds all kernel modules when the system's kernel will be
| upgraded.
