Ubuntu 11.10 is just days away

Canonical has announced 13th of October as launch date of Ubuntu Linux version 11.10, codenamed Oneiric Ocelot. Currently in Beta 2 state, Canonical is on the fast track to release this OS one week from now. They have setup a website that shows countdown to release of 11.10. In case you are interested in learning a bit more on what is happening w.r.t 11.10, you can head to this site which shows the development status: http://status.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-oneiric/ and this is the current status

If you are curious to try the 11.10 version of Ubuntu, you can upgrade from existing version by pressing Alt+F2, run 'upgrade-manager -d' and then select upgrade to 11.10 but since this is still a beta, I would suggest you not to try it on a production or primary host/machine. You can get more technical information or download Ubuntu 11.10 CD from here
