The highly anticipated Ubuntu 10.10 has now been confirmed by Canonical to be arriving on October 10th. The new Ubuntu 10.10 is designed for home and mobile computing users and introduces a number of online and offline applications together with a particular focus on the personal cloud.
Ubuntu Netbook Edition users will experience an all-new desktop interface called ‘Unity’, specifically designed and optimised for smaller screens and mobile computing.
“Ubuntu 10.10 for desktops and netbooks is our most consumer-friendly release yet,” said Jane Silber, CEO of Canonical. “Ubuntu One’s personal cloud services will put Ubuntu at the heart of many users’ computing worlds even when they need or prefer to use other platforms.
Unity has the opportunity to change how we think about our use of computers and the Software Centre will bridge Ubuntu with the applications users need to switch to the world’s best OS.”
