future plans, and so I’m writing to introduce you to The Jaunty Jackalope.
Jaunty, the code name for what will most likely become Ubuntu 9.04, will
be the focus of our efforts from November through to April next year.
This is the message that Mark Shuttleworth sent it yesterday announcing the codename of the april 2009 Ubuntu release.
What are some of the major goals for these release? Mark stated:
Ubuntu has experienced its share of success, but it’s still relatively unknown amongst non-technical people. Many aren’t aware that an open source operating system actually exists, and those who are lack the education required to move comfortably from Microsoft Windows to a Linux-based desktop. Ubuntu for Non-Geeks: A Pain-Free, Project-Based, Get-Things-Done Guidebook, by Rickford Grant, introduces non-Linux users to the world of Linux and shows them how to be productive in a complete Linux environment.

In my opinion Linux Mint smells much better than Ubuntu. I had on my PC for a few months Linux Mint 3, and I liked it. But I switched to Arch Linux. This release made me think again at Linux Mint. I’m downloading it right now. I will wait to check ‘er out (and, of course, I will post my impressions).
