"The combination of Ubuntu Linux's growing popularity with all the big changes coming up in the next version mean that Natty Narwhal, or Ubuntu 11.04, might just be the most widely and anxiously anticipated release of the open source operating system ever.", outlines a post by Katherine Noyes – Thu Mar 31, 7:30 pm ET.
And true to the post, it brings to GNU/Linux this huge list of cutting-edge features. Try Before you Buy which enables a user to test an application before installing, Love Handles which introduces to Gnu/Linux a set of drivers for your touchscreen devices and more security features, all coming as a single disk. This follows their announcement to discontinue maintaining a separate netbook disk (iso) image.
In addition to these, there are a myraid of other changes that have stirred mixed reactions in both the Ubuntu community. This are such as Mark shuttleworth's announcement that Ubuntu will be replacing Gnome with Unity as the default desktop environment on Natty Narwhal, the replacing of Open Office with Libre office, replacing Rythmbox with Banshee as the default multimedia player among others.
