Today the latest version of Ubuntu was released 8.04 Hardy Heron. Ubuntu’s slogan is “Linux for Human beings” which I would have to say they are doing a good job at it. The desktop version is very easy to install, comes with most of the programs your average user would need, and is easy to update. A great review of the installation process can be read about on linuxformat.co.uk. You can get the cd at www.ubuntu.com The great thing is the cd is a live cd, so you can boot your computer with it and try it out without having to install or erase your hard drive.
I plan to probably update the server over the weekend, so there might be a little downtime on Saturday.
