Drool-buntu, or Flight of the Drake VI

leave a comment »

The June 1 date for the next Ubuntu GNU/Linux release is closing (although the original April 24 date would’ve been closer… Oh well), and many “previews” are already available. I placed preview in double quotes, as these are based on the Flight Series alpha test releases, which is a snapshot release of the product.

First to rise on my browser was Linuxforums which aptly claims to be not a preview but a survey of the current available flight CD. He pushes some nice points regarding the GUI installer holy war, and it’s an overall positive survey, but then again the writer is a self proclaimed Ubuntu lover.

Second is a lookahead straight from the padded cells of the Mad Penguin. The insanity of said waterfowl doesn’t deter him from warmly recommending Ubuntu, despite it being, as he claims “not quite in the league of Slackware and Red Hat/Fedora“. Whatever league is that, I don’t know, but then again, the writer does, as par with his words, “prefer Slackware over any other distro”.

And, naturally, you might want to go over the actual description of the release, which is displayed for your inquiring eyes in all shades of brown.

The current alpha release, code named “flight 6” is available here for download.
