Ubuntu 6.04 (Dapper Drake) Flight CD 4

Posted in Linux, Site News


The top-of-the-chart popularity Linux distro, Ubuntu has released its latest alpha version of 6.04 (known as Dapper Drake Flight CD 4), the 4th alpha release of version 6.04. Ubuntu (Dapper Drake) is a daily build version of the feature Ubuntu Linux Distribution.

The install CD allows you to install Ubuntu permanently on a computer. There are three images available, each for a different type of computer, PC (Intel x-86), Mac (Power PC) and 64-bit PC (AMD64).

The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.

These freedoms make Ubuntu fundamentally different from traditional proprietary software: not only are the tools you need available free of charge, you have the right to modify your software until it works the way you want it to.

The Flight CD 4 release can be downloaded from this site, or its alternative mirrors.

One of the problems that Ubuntu has, is basically upon entering the Ubuntu website, finding the alpha version for download is too tedious, unlike other Linux OS, such as SUSE. Other than the poor linkage to the alpha download site, Ubuntu is an impresive Linux OS.
