Certainly are some interesting features. I'll hang on until I get a good chance to hammer my way through it before making a decision to jump into another distro.

I've downloaded several (including the latest FreeBSD), but haven't loaded any of them yet.

Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 1 Released

Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot Beta 1 Has Been Released [Video, Screenshots]

Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) Beta Released, & Initial Impressions!

First beta for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot released

Getting closer.

_______________

Excellent video demo!

Instead of rethinking Unity, it looks like the developers are expanding its functionality and creating an even more bloated piece of software.  An additional tweak tab has been added to the Compiz Config Manager for Unity.

Instead of streamlining Unity, they just heaped more crap on top of the existing crap.  Meh!  Roll Eyes

Best New Feature of Ubuntu Oneric - GNOME Shell

Quote
But things are changing. Latest Ubuntu 11.10 Oneric is based on GNOME 3.0 and you can now safely install and run GNOME Shell in Ubuntu. I am running latest Ubuntu 11.10 Oneric Ocelot beta and GNOME Shell along with it. Installation is very easy. Just search and install GNOME Shell from Ubuntu Software Center. Here are some random screenshots of latest Ubuntu 11.10 Oneric Ocelot running GNOME Shell.

I've loaded the Beta 1 version in VirtualBox and noticed that the session selection option (Unity or Unity 2D) has been redesigned on the log in screen.  Right-clicking on that screen produces nothing.  The session selection is accessed by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of the password dialog box.

Volume, time and shutdown are also available.  The "Restart" function is now accessed via the "Shutdown..."  dialog box.

Keep in mind that this is still Beta and the final version may be different.

Also, upon first boot, I received the proprietary drives availability pop-up.  It downloaded and installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions.  That's new.

This version of Unity seems even more bloated and slower than the last.  Same old crap, just more of it.

Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 2 Released, Synaptic Removed

Quote
What's new in Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 2? Well, Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 2 includes newer kernel packages based on the stable Linux kernel 3.0.4 upstream release, the newly released GNOME 3.2 Release Candidate desktop environment, LibreOffice 3.4.3, Mozilla Firefox 7.0 Beta 6, and Mozilla Thunderbird 7.0 Beta 3.

Synaptic Package Manager and PiTiVi have been removed from Ubuntu 11.10, but they are still supported and available for installation in the default software repositories.

Excited for Ubuntu Linux 11.10? The Official Countdown Has Begun

Quote
It may not compare with the hype that comes out of Cupertino or Redmond, but there's no denying that the new “This Is the Countdown” website launched in the past few days adds a considerable dose of excitement to the upcoming launch of Ubuntu 11.10, or “Oneiric Ocelot.”

No.  Actually I'm waiting for the one after this one:  The next LTS (Ubuntu 12.04) coming in April 2012.

If they keep heaping more crap into Unity, we'll all be rocking Xubuntu.

How to install Gnome Shell in Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)

Quote
GNOME Shell is the defining technology of the GNOME 3 user experience. It provides core interface functions like switching to windows and launching applications. GNOME Shell takes advantage of the capabilities of modern graphics hardware and introduces innovative user interface concepts to provide a delightful and easy to use experience.

Better, but this really needs to be installed by default or as an option during installation.

The new version 11.10 is due out tomorrow and there is still no mention of it on the Ubuntu home page or any other page.

Usually there's a counter or at least an announcement several days prior to drop.  Undecided

Ubuntu 11.10 launch interview- Unity is here to stay

Quote
“We’re describing it as an iteration rather than a revolution,” Carr explains of the release his company has spent the last six months shepherding towards release. “Really, it’s the first step towards this drive that we have to break down the separation between the operating system and the applications – the legacy of where Ubuntu’s come from – and the cloud, and the Internet, so basically where people get content and applications from outside of their local PCs.”

 Undecided

All of this move toward cloud computing is fine until you lose Internet access.  I've found that out the hard way at work.  Angry
