Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The 5th preview release of Ubuntu Dapper Drake is out on the mirrors. As usual, there are both install and live CD's for PowerPC, x86, and x86-64. "We are now in the final stages of Dapper Drake development. Everything is stabilizing, and Ubuntu 6.04 will certainly be a top-notch professional OS. Now that all of the lower level improvements have been made, it is time to close the hood and rub on a coat of wax. With Flight 5 comes a new and improved Human look-and-feel, a few new GUI power tools, and much more." Update: Screenshot tour.

Dapper looks like it will be pretty good. I don't think Ubuntu every really brings out anything revolutionary in any of it's releases , they focus on the simple but useful things. Which is what makes Ubuntu great , in my opinion.

I can't wait to get dapper , just to use gdebi. Nothing revolutionary here but useful.( like gnome-sudo tool ) This tool alone will take fustration out of some fairly mundane yet routine debian admin tasks. I know there are other gui debian installers out there but this will save so much time. ..

They should take repository management out of synaptic and update manager and put into a seperate application.
It would make life a lot easier.

System menu is getting a bit crowded. Why do we need
to add a help folder ? Wouldnt it be better to improve the help app ( yelp ), than to give us 3 types of help ?


CLI are useful but there not meant for everything.Go Ubuntu go !!!!
