Today when I turned on my notebook, I realized that its April and the fresh new release of ubuntu should be out. I checked out the site and yeah, it was.
So I upgraded my notebook from 8.10 to 9.04. And it was a breeze. For those who wonder what the version numbers are, its really a very simple logic. The major version number is the year and the minor is month. 9.04 means released in month of April'09. 8.10 meant the version released in Oct'08. Ubuntu usually releases new version in these two months only. Can you see how simplified is the logic behind the version numbers. Doesn't it tell you about how simple this OS is?
If you have not yet checked it out, please do. Its free :)
