It finally came the moment! It's 29th of October 2009, the day Ubuntu 9.10 is set to be released. It comes with a faster booting time featuring a smooth graphical interface so newbies don't get scarred of scrolling texts anymore, a new Software Center so you can manage your Applications more easily and a lot more features I will let you to discover for yourself here.
Go and download Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala here.
Also I wanted to give you a heads-up about one community-contributed feature that's new to Ubuntu 9.10: it's the first Ubuntu release that never needs to be rebooted for operating system updates. The capability isn't yet included in Ubuntu by default (expect that in a future release!), but users can easily enable it by going here.
