The newest Ubuntu Linux long term support (LTS) release, code named 'Hardy Heron' (officially called Ubuntu 8.04) is set to be available today, including both desktop and server editions with a long list of new features.
Among them is an innovative new way to install and uninstall Linux with a Microsoft Windows desktop.
With the release, Ubuntu and its commercial sponsor Canonical aim to dispel the myth that there isn't a market for the Linux desktop and that it can compete against Microsoft. The Ubuntu 8.04 release also aims to make it easier in the first place of users to try out Linux.

A few years ago, just about the only menu choices on the main desktop environments were the ones that shipped with them, or the exhaustive Debian ones. For five years, GNOME didn't even have a menu editor. However, recent years have seen an outbreak of experimentation, ranging from Windows-inspired menus such as openSUSE's default Slab, the Vista Menu for GNOME Panel (which seems to have taken up where the apparently defunct USlab port to Ubuntu stopped), and the menu in the newly released KDE 4, to menus whose goal is to integrate social networking into the desktop, such as BigBoard and Gimmie. Apparently, the old style accordion menu is no longer functional or fashionable enough.

Hardy Heron Alpha-3, which will in time become Ubuntu 8.04.

Pre-releases of Hardy are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.
Alpha 3 is the third in a series of milestone CD images that will be
released throughout the Hardy development cycle. The Alpha images are known
to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while
representing a very recent snapshot of Hardy. You can download it here:

Many people still question whether Linux will ever make it fully into mainstream computer acceptance. A $199 computer now available on a major superstore's shelves just in time for Christmas might change all that. Anyone who wants a computer to just to send email and instant messages and watch YouTube videos should like the Everex gPC, which is powered by a nifty Linux distribution called gOS.
