Another release for you *ubuntu users out there. I’m an ubuntu newbie with only a few weeks of a full fledged dual boot install on my laptop, and loving every minute. (Psst.. It’s free!)
If you’re a windows person, like me, and want a taste of what Linux is like, then *Ubuntu is the flavor to try! I’ve been playing with it nonstop and having lots of fun with it. The OS has a great community behind it (friendly and willing) and a great resource for learning. They also have Pro-Support available for people who want it.
Over 300 post-release updates have been pre-applied, so that fewer updates will need to be downloaded after installation, and a number of bugs in the installation system have been corrected. These include security updates and corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. We do not expect that certifications against Ubuntu 6.06 LTS will need to be updated for this maintenance release.
