First Look: Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope

Filed under
Ubuntu

With the April 23 release date getting ever closer, I decided to test Alpha 4 of Ubuntu 9.04 — code-named Jaunty Jackalope – to get a feel for the forthcoming operating system.

Canonical’s promise to deliver “the absolute latest and greatest software the Open Source Community has to offer” with just a six month development cycle has seen them take some bold risks with previous releases.

One controversial example involves Ubuntu 8.04, a supposed ‘Long Term Support’ release that shipped with a beta version of Firefox 3.

Still Aggressive

A look at Jaunty’s feature list shows the Ubuntu developers are not going conservative on us just yet.

The latest 1.6 version of the X.Org server, Ubuntu’s fundamental graphics subsystem will be included.
