Jaunty Jackalope... the Easter bunny just grew antlers

Filed under
Ubuntu

As I write this, there are just 10 days until the next release of Ubuntu Linux (due 23rd April). Named "Jaunty Jackalope", it will be the credit crunch busting software solution you've all been desperate for. So what's new, or rather, why should you care? Perhaps you were looking to buy a new PC/laptop but the recession prohibits lavish spending, or maybe you've just purchased one and haven't yet found a nearby skip to dump the old box in!

Let me tell you, my newest computer is 5 years old and Ubuntu runs superbly, giving me sharper looks and animations, sexier than a Mac fanboi's wet dream. Ubuntu's appeal is that it breathes new life into your old hardware, with my aging tower well hidden you could fooled into thinking I'd splashed out on something expensive. It doesn't have to be a replacement for Windows or Mac OSX, there are plenty of ways to run the Ubuntu operating system alongside your current configuration.

Fancy treating yourself to a belated non-fattening Easter present?

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
