Ubuntu 10.10 Released

ubuntu-splash-transparent It´s an appropriate day to release the latest version of the Linux distribution Ubuntu, called "Maverick Meerkat". or 10.10 as the official version number is. The version numbers in Ubuntu is, as you already may know, the year and month of the release.

I will shortly try to install the new version from within my existing 10.04 installation. This should be as easy as to go to the update manager and click on a button to install the new version. However, last time I tried it, going from 9.10 to 10.04 back in April, the download and install took many hours, so I opted to just download the ISO file and install from there from scratch.

I am currently downloading the ISO file, just in case I will need it. But hopefully the online installation will be smoother than last time. It will also be interesting to see how Notes 8.5.2 is working in the new version of Ubuntu.

Here are some links I want to share to anyone else who want to try Ubuntu, or is planning to upgrade.
