Ubuntu Linux 6.06 Review

Ubuntu

Ubuntu Linux 6.06 was delayed for several weeks to ensure that it was as good as it could be, then finally released on June 1. This version of Ubuntu was supposed to be "enterprise-ready" as a server and as a desktop, but unless businesses like dealing with multiple hardware issues, a substandard Java environment, and a lack of proprietary Web browser plugins, I can't see how Ubuntu Linux 6.06 is ready for anything except perhaps a patch release.

Ubuntu overview

This section is for people new to Ubuntu Linux. If you're already familiar with the basic details of this operating system, you may want to skip down to the next section, which details the new features in this release.

Ubuntu Linux is a relatively new GNU/Linux distribution that was originally based on Debian. Since its first release in September 2004, Ubuntu has grown further and further away from Debian, though there is still a great deal of resemblance between the two. Ubuntu is on a six-month release cycle, so the goal is to create two production releases per year. Release numbers are a one-digit year followed by a two-digit month, so 6.06 represents a June 2006 release, and 5.10 indicates an October 2005 release.
