Ubuntu which is now being part of most of the Laptops, Notebooks and the familiar Linux flavor released a new beta version. This version Ubuntu 6.10 Beta will make it much more popular and is called Edgy Eft. Once done with the Beta test and found to be successful in making new features available with it and will be through for the full fledged release soon. If you are curious to try this version then it might need a second thought since the total version will be out by a month after this release.
The new one is quite promising and a good for the firm to be progressive by all the additions made into it. Apart from the faith which it usually has the 6.10 Edgy Eft has a completely brand new theme and refreshing splash screen after boot up. Edgy Beta includes the latest GNOME 2.16. To make notes easily using Tomboy is yet another feature since its also personal you have a photo manager to organize you pictures and photo collection in the system using F-Spot software. A new version of Evolution is included in the new release.
The next thing is my hot favorite. I’m really a very BIG fan of Firefox. The browser provide is Firefox 2. The latest version of Firefox is called Bon Echo. It has got many new features like built in phishing detectors, improved tab support, subscribing to web feeds, inline spell check and many more. For Office users its OpenOffice 2.0.4 RC2 so if you are used to it then you will have fun. It has GAIM Beta 3 which 2.0 version. For all those using the previous version of Ubuntu naming 6.06 then you can for this 6.10 which is reportedly good enough and more refined one from them. However for the rest this does not turn out to be nothing special and different making them admirers because if you have it running with laptop with you on the lap then you will feel how it would be without a fan in it.
