iTWire – Ubuntu: next release will be the critical one

I think the criticality of this is a bit overblown. The next release will definitely be a milestone, but I don’t believe most Ubuntu and Linux supporters in general consider it to be “critical”. I feel it definitely brings Ubuntu that much closer to being a viable Windows and OS-X competitor.

I’ve been running the Alpha 5-Alpha 6 version of Hardy Heron on my desktop machine for a few days now, and am really impressed with it. Even in an Alpha stage- I’ve found it to be reliable and quite usable. Some of the configuration tools have problems, but they are still working on them, and it should make things a lot easier when the final release comes out. I’ve still had some video issues, and Firefox3 gags on several Web sites, but it’s all Alpha or Beta software.
