Meow! Meow! Oneiric Ocelot pounces on the virtual streets today as the 11.10th iteration of awesome Ubuntu in its bi-annual release schedule.
This release sports a new and much improved Unity interface with a sleeker Dash menu. If you are an Ubuntu user and you have not tried it yet, well, where have you been hiding all these months? Unity is a rockin desktop shell, and a fresh and welcome face in the staleness and monotony that abounds the Linux desktop environment.
Ubuntu 11.10 also comes with the new Gnome 3.2. There are a lot of new apps and changes included in this release such as Mozilla Thunderbird as the new default mail client and Deja Dup for backup. The new and revamped Gwibber finds its way into Oneiric and the sexier-looking Ubuntu Software Center, as well as the latest versions of your favorite apps – Firefox 7.01 and LibreOffice 3.4.3. Finally the login screen is now managed by LightDM which looks more appealing than ever before. Oh, did I already mention that the newest Ubuntu runs with Linux kernel 3.0?
Well, enough said. There are too many new things to mention so download Ubuntu 11.10 and enjoy!
