Finally 28th April is here and here comes the much awaited Ubuntu  11.04 “Natty Narwhal” . You can simple grab the .iso file  from the www.ubuntu.com  or if you want it through web there’s another  method. Just type “update-manager  -d” (without quotes) as the root  in your terminal and it will lead you to a series of the up-gradation process. So upgrade it and play with unity  :D

Waiting for the Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” stable version?? 28th April is the date for you :) If you still want to try out the beta 2 version you can download it from www.ubuntu.com and can also help in the development by reporting bugs to the community. Ubuntu removed the name “Editions” from this release onward .,No desktop and netbook editions. Just “Ubuntu” :)  Base kernel for the beta 2 is 2.6.38 . A great news for unity lovers. Unity developed by Cannonical  is now the default Ubuntu desktop session and unity launcher comes with many new features. Gnome 3  is expected to be highly compatible with the Ubuntu 11.04 .Gnome developers are working on the .deb package of the Gnome 3.All set for the release of the most popular and friendly distro. Download and feel the influence :)

Ubuntu 11.04 days to go
