If you’re set to try the new Ubuntu 9.04 release when it comes out on April 23rd you may enjoy a few of these resources.
As if you haven’t already been flooded with enough news about the new Ubuntu features here’s a list of what you’ll be missing if you don’t check out the latest release of Ubuntu. GNOME 2.26, new desktop notifications, better multi-display support, cloud support, upgraded X.Org server 1.6, Linux kernel 2.6.28 and support for the ext4 file system. Although version 9.04 does include some new features, Ubuntu has changed little on the desktop. Users looking to score Ubuntu for free may look at downloading or picking it up on CD for $1.95 before waiting 10 weeks for the subtle changes displayed in the RC release. Only time and this poll will tell.
