Eight New Features in Ubuntu 12.10 Alpha 1
The arrival of Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS “Precise Pangolin” was a major event a few weeks ago, not least because it is a Long Term Support release and thus a good, stable choice for both business and individual users.
Work never stops in the Linux world, however, and on Thursday Canonical unveiled the first alpha version of Precise Pangolin's successor: Ubuntu 12.10, or “Quantal Quetzal.”
The software is a very early pre-release, of course, and definitely not intended for production purposes. Still, it offers a compelling early peek at what's to come in the next version of Canonical's popular free and open source Linux distribution.
