Thread: Ubuntu's Natty Narwhal release

    Default Ubuntu's Natty Narwhal release

    Ubuntu's Natty Narwhal release

    It's still a few months off but the next release of Ubuntu Linux could be an important one

    I'm looking forward to trying out the new Wayland graphics system.
    There comes a point in just about every software project where it becomes unfeasible to carry on hacking an old architecture/design to fit new hardware and user requirements.
    Out with the old and in with the new (and probably unstable/untested/buggy).

    Innovation is what made Ubuntu the best desktop linux distro in the world today and innovation is whats going to keep them ahead of the others in the future. Go Ubuntu! I love innovation. I get so bored of the old stuff.

    Seems a lot of big players are heading down the wayland road:

    Mark Shuttleworth has announced plans to offer Wayland as an alternative to the X Window System in the Ubuntu version scheduled to be released in April 2011.[8] Fedora developers have said that "switching the default [is] likely to happen" in some future release of Fedora.[9] Intel and Nokia want to adopt Wayland in a future version of MeeGo.[10]

    Wayland / Unity sounds like a great idea. (and if not, I'll just run Gnome, dunno what everyone's fussing about, just have to install it manually probably)
    More importantly, that Ubuntu One API is gonna lead to big things. Brilliant.

    i'll give you marketing. not so sure about the innovation given most things included in ubuntu are projects run by other groups (the same as happens with other distros tbf).

    according to system:about I'm using natty narwhal 11.04 right now
    Christ-mass is NOT for Christians. Jeremiah 10.
    Is the 10 Commandments for Christians?
