New version of Ubuntu Linux due tomorrow

Ubuntu Linux 8.10, codenamed “Intrepid Ibex”, is due out tomorrow, October 30.

Even though it doesn’t have tons of new features — and won’t include OpenOffice.org 3 by default; it came out too late to be included, but can be added by end users — I’ll be sure to upgrade it tomorrow. (The last edition, 8.04 LTS, “Hardy Heron” was a long-term supported release and made bigger changes.)

In some places, Ubuntu Linux local communities (LoCos) have release parties. Not D.C., it seems. So a little virtual celebration here.

Are you upgrading or installing Intrepid tomorrow? Have been using the beta? And what would it take for you to make the jump? Perhaps an easy, no-risk way to try (Windows)?
