If everything goes according to plan, Canonical is set to release Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal tomorrow, April 28. There will be some drastic changes to the desktop with Unity replacing Gnome 3 as the graphical environment. LibreOffice is also replacing OpenOffice for the Office productivity tools. In addition, Ubuntu is also set to release the Ubuntu Server, Xubuntu, Kubuntu among others.
It should be a fun day tomorrow. I will be downloading and installing 11.04 on a virtual machine. By the way, I have been using Unity on my Ubuntu 10.04 desktop system for several days now to get a head start with Unity. I can’t wait to get my hands on Natty Narwhal to see the latest and greatest from Ubuntu.
I want Gnome 3 with default look of Gnome 2. It was very good idea of two panels. Mac OS X has one top panel and dock on bottom and it is good. Why developers can’t continue its idea 🙁
I will be reviewing the Unity in a few days. So, I will give my opinion then. In the meantime, Gnome 3 is coming out with some exciting new features as well.
