| ever.

| Coming later this month, Intrepid Ibex will be the ninth Ubuntu release. For
| all we know, it has got a new network manager with better support for 3G
| networks, Nautilus now has support for tabs, auto-install drivers option now
| works with printers, there is a whole new black theme and a better flash
| support.

Ubuntu 8.10 Coming Soon

,----[ Quote ]
| For those that were expecting some totally new, totally different Ubuntu,
| that’s not going to happen. And to be honest, that’s good.
|
| The way in which Ubuntu does releases is some of the smartest I’ve ever seen
| mainly due to the fact they don’t try to reinvent the wheel each time.
| Instead they take what they have (which is good) and improve upon it.

| “It’s been a pretty big deployment, well over 1000 desktops and it’s been a
| huge success,” crows the source. “Ubuntu does the same job [as Windows] for
| zero cash. The most painful thing about the change over was moving to
| Thunderbird from Outlook. No one has batted an eyelid about moving to Gnome.”
