Yesterday was a very important day for the project Ubuntu, which saw the release of the new version of the popular operating system Linux, precisely the 11.04 code name Natty Narwhal. I think this release is particularly important because it could become a “breaking point” with classical interfaces management O.S. we are used to. The most important novelty of this new version of Ubuntu is in fact no doubt Unity, criticatissima and the new graphical interface, however, already seen in the version of the netbook Lucid Lynx.
I could try, at least for now, Live version only but I'll update once already decided that the machine I use for work in the office. I really like the new interface a lot, making use of desktop not dissimilar to that of a iPad for example; the launcher application has been moved to the left side of the screen, with a variety of graphical icons are not too dissimilar from the famous App iOS the Android. There is no doubt that with the spread of the screens touch screen and increasingly large, This type of desktop can be a winning choice, which maybe the other operating system vendors will have to face in a few years.
Graphics aside, under the hood of this new release we find the usual solidity and reliability that has made us accustomed Ubuntu. A focus also to safety; quick installation as soon as the fact, There is also a pre-set firewall and an antivirus. As always, installation is very simple and you can combine Natty Narwhal to dual boot with Windows 7 Wubi, the easy installer in Italian.
My advice is to try this OS, could positively surprise you and maybe convince you to do “big jump”.
