After release of Ubuntu 8.10 now Canonical launched the latest and new version of Ubuntu Linux. The new version is 9.04 and have codename as “Jaunty Jackalope”. This new version of Ubuntu is released on 23rd of April 2009. Means just 4 days ago.
This new version is released after 1year of last release which was 8.04, this new released do not contain any special changes like the previous one. But this time they released a special version for Notebook users, called “Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix” which is specially tested on few branded know laptops.
I just cant understand one issue here at Ubuntu’s download page. Check this image
I was just shocked that Ubuntu is preferring the users to use the older version and its support is more than the newer version. !! I don’t know why, but its strange.Same case is with the server edition of Ubuntu, the older version 8.04 is support until 2013 and the newer 9.04 if support until 2010.
According to Matt Cutts – The Google engineer, the new ubuntu 9.04 boots in just 7.83 sec !! Now its time to check it on my system which is not as high powered as the Matt’s system.
But still as always Ubuntu is free to download and it really rocks with its amazing graphics and amazing features. I am still using Ubuntu in my laptop.
If you want Ubuntu on CD for free of cost go to ShipIt.Ubuntu.com and place a order for free CDs, The Ubuntu people will send you the latest version of Ubuntu for FREE !!. I ordered on CD for me. But now due to high number of requests they paused taking orders of free CD. So download ubuntu , burn it on CD and enjoy the power of open source.
