Ubuntu/Kubuntu Linux 5.10 (Breezy Badger) Released!

After months of alpha and beta testing Ubuntu, and Kubuntu, 5.10 (Breezy Badger) has been released!!

Ubuntu 5.10 contains the very latest GNOME 2.12, OpenOffice.org 2.0 beta 2, a very very simple “Add/Remove programs” system, and also an improved version of Xorg 6.8.2 with wider hardware support.

Kubuntu 5.10 contains the latest KDE 3.4.3, OpenOffice.org 2.0 beta 2 with KDE intergration, and a brand new KDE apt package manager called Adept. This new one replaces Kynaptic, which kind of sucked big time. I’ve been playing a little bit with the RC1 LiveCD and I’m really pleased with this new KDE package manager.

If you are looking for a nice easy to use Debian-based Linux distribution, I highly recommend you taking a look at Ubuntu (GNOME) or Kubuntu (KDE).

OSdir has made quite a few screenshots of Ubuntu 5.10 available right here: http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/slideshow.php?release=469&slide=4

Ubuntu and Kubuntu can be downloaded at either ubuntulinux.org or kubuntu.org, there are LiveCDs of both available.

The Ubuntu Team are not quite done yet, they’ll be releasing Edubuntu very very soon, it might even show up later today, which is a version of Ubuntu optimized for use in a school or for other educational purposes.
