Yet Another Feisty Review

Ubuntu

I’d like to share with you my views on latest Ubuntu 7.04 version commonly known under the name of Feisty Fawn. Once I tested unstable version for several weeks but this time I’ve run a stable release.

The Spring of 2007 can be safely named Linux Spring in my humble opinion. We have been witnessing several important releases in a last few weeks. There was Debian Etch, PLD 2.0 and Mandriva 2007 Spring. Soon afterwards fifth version of Red Hat flagship product called Red Hat Enterprise Linux had its debut on commercial markets and Fedora developers released a stable version of their own system denote with number 7. Ubuntu release came as no shock to community. Its publication was the most awaited of all releases what can be attested by numerous reviews. And this is just another one.
