Ubuntu [Drapper] Launched in style!

Many geeks turned up at ExcelWorld on last Sunday for the launch of the much waited and anticipated version of Ubuntu, codenamed Drapper. Drapper, aka Ubuntu 6.06, has several improvements over previous versions. Here are some of the high-lights:


  • Single installable LiveCD

  • Graphical Installer

  • Nice sleek look (Ubuntu only IMHO)

  • Official promotion of Kubuntu

  • Update notification applet

  • Improved hardware support, especially for wireless devices



Anyway, I hope to write a review on my first impressions on Ubuntu later this week.. so stay tuned.

I got to the party a little bit late - at around 6pm even though it was on from about 1pm. As I arrived I could see a table infested with geeks, notebooks and digi camera's. Got myself a set of Ubuntu and Kubuntu CDs of which I installed Ubuntu on my home barebone system as an addition to the existing 3 or 4 other distros :)

Anyway it was a fun launch... enjoy the pictures.
