Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Goals

Mark Shuttleworth wrote today, October 20th, on his blog, about the impending new Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) that will be launched next spring, April 26th.

As Mark has already said, Linux distributions have tried to prioritize items to backport, but that puts the stability of known-good configurations very much at risk.

Rick Spencer and his team from Canonical are working hard to prepare the new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS release for hardware challenges of the next few years. 

Mark Shuttleworth also pointed out what goals the new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) need to be: 
  • Adjusting the cycle to allocate more time for resolving issues;
  • Introducing minimal new infrastructure or platform-visible change;
  • Goal-driven and continuously benchmarked programs of action around performance;
  • First-class accessibility for those with special interaction needs;
  • Enablement and certification of the sorts of hardware people will deploy at scale and in the datacenter.
Until then, you can download Ubuntu 11.10 right now on these following links:
