First thoughts on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

Filed under
Ubuntu

Yesterday I downloaded a copy of Ubuntu's latest release, version 7.04 Feisty Fawn. The download took some hours because of busy servers but I think that it was well worth it.

I don't want to overhype anything but I can say with all honesty that Ubuntu 7.04 is by far the best and easiest version of Linux that I've used. The Live CD worked flawlessly for me and allowed me to road-test features without the hassle of installation. The installation was also a snap and the step-by-step wizard is really easy to follow - as easy, if not easier, than a Windows installation.

I can't say that the Ubuntu installation process is a fast one, it isn't, and felt a lot slower than installing Windows Vista, but the end result was an OS that worked, was snappy and has loads of apps pre-installed. Nice. Very nice!

I wonder...

Screenshot galleries for alphas, betas, and RCs, then final. Since all the real changes are under the hood (GNOME is on version freeze), why bother repeating?

re: I wonder

Why do Mac Freaks drool over "unboxing photos" (i.e. a sequence of photos showing nothing more then the unboxing of a new Apple product).

Some Mysteries are best left unanswered.

I have always thought it was

I have always thought it was some kind of a ritual.

BTW, Apple is the least green company according to a recent study (limited scope of course).

Linux 3.18-rc6

Steady progress towards final release, although we still have a big unknown worry in a regression that Dave Jones reported and that we haven't solved yet. In the process of chasing that one down, there's been a fair amount of looking at various low-level details, and that found some dubious issues, but no smoking gun yet. But that explains some of the patches in rc6.. Read more
