The most popular Linux. After the usual 6 months of development, Ubuntu 11.04 has finally been released. I usually start these posts with "there haven't been any major or ground-breaking changes" but this time pretty much everything is new with the introduction of Unity as the default interface. Since we've been writing about the new features in Ubuntu 11.04 constantly, in this post we'll only talk about the major new features. Read on!

I hope you like it!

Big thanks to WEB UPD8 and OMGUbuntu!

Some new feautures:
- Unity as been confirmed as default for Ubuntu 11.04 – desktop edition, the desktop version will use the global menu (AppMenu).
Image
- LibreOffice will likely be included in next version of Ubuntu if it’s ready

- Firefox 4 is still favored over Chrome as the default browser in Ubuntu. Chrome still poses too many challenges for Ubuntu (the release cycle doesn’t fit well with Ubuntu Update model and also there are issues with the Global Menu integrations and so on).

- The decision to replace Evolution with Thunderbird in Ubuntu has been deferred. Hopefully Thunderbird will be ready in a cycle or two (it misses a calendar, exchange support, integration with appmenu and messaging menu).

- Banshee will be included by default in Ubuntu 11.04 (and thus replace Rhythmbox)

- Oneconf will be included by default in Ubuntu 11.04. OneConf is a mechanism for recording software information in Ubuntu One, and synchronizing with other computers as needed.

- Gnome-dictionary will be removed from the CD

- Nautilus Elementary was also brought up for discussion, but was rejected “because the patches are considered hacks”.

- In Natty Narwhal Software Center “For Purchase” category will be updated with more commercial software. And you will be able to sponsor your favorite app by donating any money amount to developers.

- GTK app Remmina will replace TSClient as the default remote desktop client in Ubuntu 11.04

yep been using it for a while, RTW ed yesterday.
Shame they discontinued ship-it free cd's though.
Very good, works well with my dell.
Just the drivers mean that unity does not work on my desktop with a nvidia FX5500.

Log off and select the Classic Gnome Desktop. You have the Gnome Desktop.

Downloaded and installed it, a little buggy and slow for what I expected. Longer to install than 10.10 and it took my numerous tries just to get Chrome installed as Software Center kept crashing.

If installing in Virtualbox and guest additions aren't working (it will send you back to a classic gnome desktop) run this command in terminal. This will install video drivers and restart with Unity working.

Code:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-guest-utils -y; sudo reboot

A lot of people seem to be complaining about Unity. Is it really that bad?

I really like this release of Ubuntu. Ubuntu has definitely come a long way in the last few years! However, I would highly recommend Fedora (KDE); even so, Ubuntu seems to be the most popular linux distribution for a reason- its probably the most valid competitor to Mac OS X or Windows.
