Upcoming Ubuntu 10.10 Upgrades User Interface for Netbooks

By Lowell Heddings on September 5th, 2010

The upcoming release of Ubuntu, scheduled for final release in October, will bring some new interface improvements including a different Netbook edition.

The beta ships with GNOME 2.31, which introduces support for the new dconf configuration storage system. Ubuntu’s standard F-Spot photo tool has been replaced by Shotwell, a relatively new application that is developed by nonprofit software group Yorba… The Ubuntu Netbook Edition has seen particularly dramatic improvements during this development cycle due to Canonical’s work on the new Unity user interface.
