Ubuntu 9.10: Karmic Koala

Posted 02-20-2009 at 03:02 PM by jkzfixme

So it seams as if a new weapon in the Linux arsenal is in the mix. Mark Shuttleworth announced the development today Fri Feb 20 16:40:36 GMT 2009. The jist of the announcement appears to be that they are focusing on cloud computing as well as a strong emphasis optimizing for netbooks, as articulated in this statement. "It only takes 35 days to make a whole Koala, so we think it should be possible to bring up a stylish desktop much faster. The goal for Jaunty on a netbook is 25 seconds, so let's see how much faster
we can get you all the way to a Koala desktop. We're also hoping to deliver a new login experience that complements the graphical boot, and works well for small groups as well as very large installations."

The article viewable here also states, shockingly enough, that they will be moving away from the brown theme.
