Putting Your Brick In The Natty Wall

Filed under
Ubuntu

Wow, what a cycle Natty has been already. Back in Orlando, when Mark proposed Unity for inclusion in Ubuntu 11.04, we knew this cycle was going to be a busy one, and the Design, Desktop Experience, Ubuntu Platform, and community teams have been working at full steam to make Natty a rocking release.

I am delighted with the progress so far. We have seen Unity land, performance improvements in Unity, Banshee shipped as our awesome new media player, ratings and reviews appear in the Ubuntu Software Center, improvements to the sound menu, a new network manager indicator, the new Unity workspace switcher, improvements in minimizing/maximizing windows, new apps appearing from the Application Review Board, the calendar indicator get an upgrade, improvements to Ubuntu One, better call handling, Launcher progress bar improvements, and much more.

Our Favourite Apps for Ubuntu

We enjoy using Ubuntu mainly for gaming, writing, listening to music and browsing the web. (Lots and lots of browsing the web.) There are other apps that we would love to have on Ubuntu like Affinity Photo, a stunning image editor that’s on par with Adobe’s Photoshop that’s available on Windows and Mac as well as Bear, a beautifully designed note taking app that we do most of our writing on that’s only available for macOS. However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
