As we hope, Jaunty Jackalope had come to the earth on time. Many Ubuntu fans has downloaded and installed the latest Ubuntu. I think April 24th is Ubuntu's day. Also we can say it is a party of Ubuntu fans. Many fans celebrated Canonical released a new version Ubuntu. They talked about Ubuntu on the Internet, no mattter where they come from. This is a celebration party owned by Ubuntu fans.
OK! Canonical released Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope. What can the latest Ubuntu bring to us? Jaunty upgrade to kernel 2.6.28, GNOME 2.26, KDE4.2, Firefox 3.0.8，X.org Server 1.6 and so on. Also, Ubuntu team brings many new features to us: new notification system, EXT4 filesystem support, improving boot performance, support Amazon cloud computing services and better installer user interface. That's so suprising for us. Ubuntu is a good OS based on Linux. It's so easy to use it and control it.
As a spotlight, Ubuntu integrate cloud computing services. I do not know why they do it. Ubuntu is designed for desktop user. It makes no sense for desktop user. I do not think that an ordinary desktop user need to build a cloud computing environment on their desktop. It will cost your desktop some resources. Maybe you can not feel your computer slower. But I said Canonical should not put cloud computing into Ubuntu.
It said that Canonical want Ubuntu to get into enterprise market. I think this is a good thing for companies. They are able to have more than one choice to select their OS that they want. Maybe it is quite useful for a cooperation to use cloud computing service， nevertheless, cloud computing application should be installed on servers not a desktop. Enterprise has many server to do a lot of things, including cloud computing.
So in my opinion, Ubuntu should commit to do more improvement for desktop edition. Because Ubuntu is famous for desktop. There is no reason to give up desktop users, although enterprise market can make more profti for them. And then, Ubuntu will walk a long road for designing better user interface and improve the compatible for hardware. We believe they can try best to do it, and they must do it well!
You is an admirable guy.回复删除
