Ubuntu 9.04 Final Test Version Available for Download
For those who prefer using Ubuntu Linux distro in their netbooks than Microsoft XP, you might be interested to take the final test version of Ubuntu 9.04 for a spin. The final testing version other wise known as release candidate, is now complete, stable and suitable for testing by any user, said Steve Langasek, Ubuntu developer.
And since this is still a release candidate, expect to encounter some more minor bugs while using Ubuntu 9.04. This is despite the fact that the RC has already been proven to be stable.
This new Release Candidate of Ubuntu OS features faster boot speeds, new desktop notification system, integration with cloud computing, and more integrated mail server stack based on postfix and packages.
But more importantly Ubuntu 9.04 has also integrated the Netbook Remix software which will make it easier to install and use Ubuntu on netbooks. Currently, Ubuntu 9.04 works well with Eee PC 900, Aspire One and Dell Mini Inspiron 9 netbooks.
The final version of Ubuntu 9.04 is slated for release on April 23. You may download the RC here.
