Ubuntu back in action

Ubuntu Linux has released their latest desktop version-Ubuntu 7.0.4 aka “Feisty Fawn”

In my previous articles I’ve mentioned I use the version 6.06 and 6.10 and been really impressed with their easiness of usage. New version has even more promsing features and also options to data and user migrations from windows operating systems. The truth is Microsoft Vista has been requesting lots of resources leaving it’s customer base with less options. Most of them are looking for alternatives and to keep their existing PC’s. Specially in Asian countries windows Vista migration might get slower phase due to the Computer hardware component prices. Microsoft still hasn’t come up with good pricing schmene for the developing countries and this is another kep point they loose average Joe’s. Anyway I’ve not yet installed the latest version cause it’s still on it’s way through ADSL line (lol)
Will update the blog one I get my hands dirty on the product. But in da meantime I found out the following features and offered bt the product,

Windows migration tool – The new migration tool recognises Internet Explorer favorites, Firefox bookmarks, desktop wallpaper, AOL IM contacts, Yahoo IM contacts and imports them in Ubuntu. This offers easier and faster migration for new users of Ubuntu and individuals wanting to run a dual partition. In addition to single accounts, you can migrate several users’ settings in Ubuntu. (I think this may get rapid improvement to support more data to be transferred)

Easy installation of multimedia codecs -Playing an MP3 or other media file just got a lot easier. If the required pieces are not yet installed, 7.04 will get the correct codecs for you, no more searching and no need for long and complicated instructions.

Easier connection to wireless networks – This is really timesaver. Just like windows XP wireless configuration options. Configuration going to be breeze.

apart from that Ubuntu 7.0.4 using the latest kernel (2.6.20) and Gnome’s most awating 2.18 desktop enviroment.
