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)

In ubuntu 10.04 distribution package there is one software i.e installed by default(In accessories) called- “Take Screenshot” with some basic features,can be used to take screenshot.Suppose you want to take screenshot for some selected region then you start annoying with this.One week ago,while I was messing around software center,a new software Ksnapshot came into the mind.I installed it and Now I think this is what I was looking for weeks.Ksnapshot is an excellent software I recommend you to use it for taking snapshots and enjoy.It is better not only in features but it is also more stable then the “Take Screenshot”.
