Ubuntu leaps forward with new innovations

Filed under
Ubuntu

Upon developing a quite solid desktop operating system, Ubuntu seems to be moving forward with new innovations, this time, I would say, pushing the boundaries of the GNU/Linux world even further. As one would expect for a GNU/Linux distribution with such a great buzz and following, there are alot of critiques and people tired of hearing about Ubuntu all the time, people that hate it as an operating system for whatever reason, but that doesn't really change the fact that it is still the most popular flavor of GNU/Linux with the biggest community and hence the greatest number of minds dedicated to making it even better. You gotta admit there's alot of potential in that kind of setting. So yes, I would concede that Ubuntu is currently among few distributions with such a great potential for innovation and I would not be surprised if it continues to "set the standard" for mainstream GNU/Linux desktop in the future.

Current issue of Distrowatch weekly points to the two newest and in my opinion quite exciting projects being developed by the Ubuntu community and which may find themselves included in the next Ubuntu release called Edgy Eft.
