Ubuntu 8.04 – Hardy Heron has for some sometime now been announced and it will be released in April 2008 and what’s really nice is that it’s going to be the next Long Term Support provided by the Ubuntu team.
Ubuntu is a really amazing Linux distribution: it’s east to use, lots of software are available and we get a new release every 6 months – I’m too lazy to upgrade each time though.
So why am I so excited about a release that’s coming in 6 months time?
Well I’m still with Dapper, the previous LTS, coz it’s so stable and once properly configured it’s extremely smooth to use – the only hic is I’m still with Firefox 1.5. The new LTS will give me the opportunity to move to another very stable OS that is going to last me years and get the latest software: probably KDE 4 + lots of other goodies
In the mean time, Gutsy Gibbon is coming out on the 18th of October – good install.

Gutsy Gibbon seems to be a very fine release: finally we have read-write access to NTFS drives and of course better support for hardware.
KDE 4.0 Beta 3 has been released and it look gorgeeeouuusssssss!
Now just imagine the next LTS building on Gutsy + having KDE 4 by default. Mouth watering!
