Ubuntu 9.10 Now Released

Posted in Business Software, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

ubuntu-910For the long awaiting fans for Ubuntu, you must be pleased to know that Ubuntu 9.10 is now available live for your download.

The new operating system is much faster, smoother and more classic (beautiful). I’m already downloading this version to replace my current Linux operating system. The mention of its optimised boot-up speed and the use of ext4 journalising filesystems is just too tempting to refuse.

Whilst I am blogging on this, my other laptop is already in the process of installing Koala Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10). If you are using Linux, perhaps, this is the best time to switch.

The service allows synchronisation of files, contacts and Tomboy notes across all Ubuntu computers and the Ubuntu Cloud. If you require more space, additional storage is available at a monthly subscription charge.
