Canonical Prepares 'Gutsy Gibbon' OS for Release

Lora Bentley

Apple has nothing on Canonical. At least not when it comes to new OS availability. According to vnunet.com, the latest version of the company's open source operating system, Ubuntu 7.10, will be available for download Thursday, Oct. 18.

 

Code-named Gutsy Gibbon, the OS will be available on the desktop -- with special editions for the KDE user (Kubuntu) and those in education (Edubuntu) -- and on the server. Among other things, the desktop edition boasts integrated desktop search, an improved user interface and better hardware support. The server edition, the story says, offers features such as proactive security and a rapid deployment platform.
