Ubuntu takes us on a spinLocked
Ubuntu has just released 6.06 LTS (Long Term Release) codenamed “Dapper Drake”looks very promising. It’s very compact (697.85 MB) and the desktop version has both the live cd and the traditional install cd bundled together. This makes people with low bandwidth a chance to try Ubuntu without sacrificing your precious time on downloading two CD’s (if you want both the live and the install CD *such as 5.10 or the breezy badger*). If you really dont have an internet connection, go to a cyber cafe and order CD’s from shipit.ubuntu.com where you can request for CD’s freely. They also included Vmware player in their repositories, sun’s Java jre and sdk, and compiz, making dapper really flexible on desktops. Ubuntu is really attracting the enterprise as they have integrated LAMP in ubuntu’s server edition. With dapper out there, we would surelly attract lots of entrepreneurs and developers who want to use an enterprise grade system without having to sacrifice 300$ per pc and on an unstable platform too. Ubuntu is currently doing tests on Sun’s Niagra processor and would soon have certifications for it.
