7 Hidden Features Of Ubuntu 11.10 You Might Not Know Of

Filed under
Ubuntu

As the latest version of Ubuntu was released, the team of developers have been hard at work adding some convenient features.

The first thing that will pleasantly surprise you is the way Ubuntu asks what display image you want for your account. Not only can you choose from a normal array of nice-looking icons, but Ubuntu automatically turns on your webcam and allows you to take a picture of yourself right on the spot if you so choose. Don’t forget that if you hate pictures taken by a webcam, you can always replace it later with a picture that you like more.
