  1. Till now i’m with windows but have changed its version lastly but never changed the whole brand 😀 recently i thought to install ubuntu but now my thinking again changed to ‘why i change windows for ubuntu?’ 😉

  2. Cool’! Been looking forward to this big day for some time now. Glad to see the Software Center, it’s way better than the ancient Add/Remove thingy in the older versions.

  3. Good to see FF still there. But I wonder after Chrome’s Enormous success, it hasn’t been able to grab the top spot in the top menu area.

    1. Actually Ubuntu version numbers are the code of month and years. Like Ubuntu 10.10 = 10 for october and 10 year 2010, again Ubuntu 9.04 = 9 for year 2009 and 04 for month April… Ubuntu released twice in a year, in April, and in October … Try it you’ll love it…
