Inside Natty Narwahl: the all-new Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

The latest version of Ubuntu, codenamed Natty Narwhal, isn't just another release of the iconic distribution. We take a comprehensive look at the new interface.

It's not enough to be an efficient operating system these days. To capture the hearts and eyes of desktop usersm an OS must be intuitive, easy to use, and pretty.

We're visual creatures, and computers are no longer the domain of bearded geeks locked in dark rooms. Everyone has one on their desktop as PCs and Macs, in their backpack as netbooks or tablets, and even in their pocket as smartphones. And they must all make themselves so easy to use that the interface itself becomes transparent. If it gets in your way, it's not a good design.

Rest here




We take a comprehensive look at the new interface.

Why waste your time? We've all seen it. Most of us do not like it despite the fact many shills try to promote it as being the next best thing to sliced bread.
