4 days until Ubuntu’s Hardy Heron takes off

Hardy Heron, the latest version of Ubuntu, arguably the world’s most well known version of Linux, is set to be released in a mere four days. Keen as I am on – shock horror – Windows Vista, and less of a shock, Mac OS X, I await the release of Ubuntu’s newest bird with great anticipation.

When it comes to being an early adopter, I’m usually right up there at the front of the queue, or damn close to it.

After my father had the tremendous foresight to buy me an Exidy Sorcerer personal computer in early 1979, when I was but four years old, three years before the IBM came onto the market in 1981, I’ve taken to technology like the early bird who catches that worm.

But one area that I’ve really not devoted much time to is the world of Linux, oddly enough. Now sure, I’ve tried it over the years. A range of different versions, too. But frankly, the experience has been vastly underwhelming every single time.

So, why am I so excited and hopeful for the Hardy Heron?
