Ubuntu 9.10 – Karmic Koala

Karmic Koala is the name for Ubuntu 9.10.
Karmic Koala is the name for Ubuntu 9.10.

Canonical never give you chance to take a breath!  9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) isnt even out and already we are talking about the name for the next version.  Karmic Koala will mark the name of v9.10 which apparently is going to further improve the experience with Netbooks.

With 9.04 being released in April, it is expected that Canonical will follow its traditional 6 months before we see 9.10.  Although it does beg the question, do we really need a 6 month release schedule?

In respect of 9.04 we have news of a new style login screen.  You can see screenshots and an article by clicking here.

    I’d say they do need that schedule.

    If Ubuntu is truly fighting for a piece of the OS market, Canonical needs to keep the pressure up.

    Also a good way to address user concerns, improvements, mods etc… You’re never stuck behind the times and the “Linux is too old-school” myth has no traction.

    I think it’s a bit unfair that you’re seeking to champion Ubuntu here while failing to mention the alternatives available.

    Some mention of Windows in a fair and balanced manner would have been appropriate according to the views you like to spread about people who write about Windows.

    And don’t even get me started on your lack of coverage of BeOS. Hypocrisy I say!

    @JD

    Firstly thankyou for being upfront enough to post that comment on my site and its a very fair point that I will address, firstly out of courtesy to you for asking it, but secondly because I agree, its an important point and yes could be leveled towards me.

    Please allow me a couple of hours, and Ill cover this in an article here.
