Ubuntu 8.10: Featureless Ibex?

Filed under
Ubuntu

A few days after Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex was released, I decided to give it a test drive in my trial of VMware Fusion. I was hoping for an awesome new experience, like I got back in the days of Gutsy Gibbon, but I didn't get an Intrepid Ibex. Just a Featureless Ibex.

Sure, all operating systems have come of age and are focusing on having better internals while maintaining the pretty look they've had for all this years. I mean, that's the main focus of Snow Leopard and Windows 7, if I'm not mistaken, and Ubuntu's joined the bandwagon.

Sure, it's nice to see that Nautilus has tabs and you can drag files to them and choose to open a folder in a new tab, that Dictionary is now in the Office menu, that there are more Tango-compliant icons, and that you can create a USB startup disk. But what else?
