The creators of the most popular Linux distro, Ubuntu, have just released version 8.10 named Intrepid Ibex. The previous version is known as Hardy Heron.
Ever since I boldly changed my laptop’s OS from Windows to Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron, I discovered the wonderful amazing world of Linux and open-source software.
