Ubuntu 11.10: The First Beta Version Arrives

The first beta version of Canonical's free and open source Linux distribution was released on Sept. 1.That means we're just a few steps away from the widely anticipated final version, which is due on Oct. 13. One more beta version will make an appearance before that point--it's scheduled to be released on Sept. 22--but in the meantime, this first beta release offers a good feel for what Oneiric Ocelot will be like.
It's not intended for production use, of course, but you can download the new beta version from the Ubuntu site and play with it to your heart's content. Here's a quick rundown of some of the changes and key features you'll find.

1. A Smaller DVD Image
2. Ubuntu Core
3. Improved 32-Bit Compatibility
4. Interface Updates
5. New Apps and Defaults
6. Nuts and Bolts
7. Lubuntu
