The new version of Ubuntu is going to be released on October 10, 2010 (10/10/10) by Canonical Ltd. The Ubuntu 10.10 version which has been named Maverick Meerkat has a lot of features. As the version number signifies, hope that it comes out to be 10 out of 10. If you want to know Technical overview of this version of Ubuntu, you can find it here.
I think this version of Ubuntu will attract more users to migrate from other OSs to Linux. Hope you all who have not used Linux before will try this and enjoy the experience.
