Next Ubuntu LTS Release to be a “Precise Pangolin”



+ Add a Comment


Another crazy name! It's too bad Ubuntu has lost its way and doesn't listen to its users. With the switch to Unity and other changes I don't use it anymore.

I now use Linux Mint. Anyone who is looking to change or try linux I recommend Linux Mint



Can't wait for Vulgar Vulture!



Ubuntu has some great things going for it. I wish they had used the GNOME 3 UI instead of Unity. Unity's not bad but GNOME 3 is slick as hell IMO.

If you like GNOME 3 check out Fedora. Fedora doesn't have as much software in its repositories as Ubuntu, but it's not that hard to figure out and use. A little "sudo yum upgrade" from time to time will keep your shit up to date and keep you in the Terminal doing something useful to maintain your system ;)



Unity is just the default, Gnome is still installed. 11.10 will have Gnome 3.

Beta 2 notes:

"GNOME got updated to current unstable version (3.1.92) on its way to GNOME 3.2"


Oops. Nevermind. They're actually removing Gnome Shell from 11.10 as a fallback from Unity. Gnome 3 is still there, but only Unity is available as the interface. That sucks.


(And still, rich-text disappears in the actual post. Everything above "Oops." should have strikethrough. Looks fine in the preview. What's the point of having the option for HTML formatting if it doesn't work?)



Someone watched "V for Vendetta" way too many times.


I gotta a better one. How about "Pretty Please"? As in pretty please will Ubuntu finally work out of the box and NOT reqiure literal HOURS spent in terminal trying to get wi-fi working?
