It was just a few weeks ago that planning began on Ubuntu 12.04, or “Precise Pangolin,” but already key details about the upcoming version of Canonical's popular Linux distribution are beginning to emerge.
A number of decisions about the new software were made at the Ubuntu Developer Summit last week. Ready for a rundown? Here's what we've learned so far.
1. Too Big for CDs
One of the more notable developments is that it looks like developers are planning to target a 750 MB ISO image for Ubuntu 12.04, meaning that the software will no longer fit on a CD, according to a report on The H. Instead, users will need either DVDs or USB drives to install it. The change may seem shocking, but it's actually an increase of only 50 MB.
