Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) Preview – Screenshot Tour

As you know – Ubuntu 11.10 beta 1 released, with a lot of improvements e.g it’s lighter && faster than it’s previous version (I mean – Ubuntu 11.04 – Natty Narwhal) and changes. Now it’s time for a quick preview, basically a screenshot tour for some of its exciting/cool features or improvements. Since it’s the beta release – there are lot of bugs (believe me it’s very annoying, I use Ubuntu 10.10 for general purpose), so obviously you aren’t going to install it on production machines. On the other hand if you want to do some experiments – then have a look at the screenshots.

Unity is the default desktop,  runs on the top of Gnome 3 , so this time – we can easily install Gnome 3 – shell on Ubuntu 11.10 without breaking the Unity.

Features/Changes in Ubuntu 11.10

  • LightDM Login Manager (instead of GDM)
  • Thunderbird as a default mail client (instead of Evolution)
  • based on Gnome 3
  • Classic Gnome desktop has been completely removed
  • Unity 2D as fallback mode
  • Linux Kernel 3.0
  • Unity desktop has changed a lot, in other words it’s far better now
  • Improvements in Ubuntu Software Center
