Ubuntu 12.04 Release Day!


Today is the release of Ubuntu 12.04 which is code named Precise Pangolin. For those who don’t know Ubuntu is a free, open source operating system much like Windows or OSX. It is Linux based. I have been running Ubuntu for about a year and a half with little problems.

 Ubuntu comes loaded with everything you need to get on the web, view and manage pictures, listen to music, view videos and write and produce documents and spreadsheets and much much more. You can also download additional apps and tweaks for free. There is great tech support in the Ubuntu/Open Source community if one has any issues or needs help.

Today’s release is going to be a long term release which means it will be supported for a number of years. From what I read there is a new kernel and many improvements to the user interface. Of course there will be changes from version 11.10 which is what many are using now. 

I am excited about this as I am every time a new release comes about. There will be lots of buzz about it today and perhaps it will trend on Twitter.
