Jaunty Jackalope

Fresh off the ubuntu-devel mailing list, Mark Shuttleworth has announced the code name for the next Ubuntu release, “Jaunty Jackalope“.
The highlights for that release, to me, are:
– Start pushing the user experience to a higher level, to match and exceed what Apple is providing today
– Cut down on boot and resume time
– Blur the line between the desktop and the web
– Move all Ubuntu packages to bazaar
– Enhance the way developers currently participate

Exciting times!

  3. I like the first “highlight” 😀
