Ubuntu 12.10 Released, Ready to Download

Canonical have announced the release of Ubuntu 12.10, the latest version of their popular Linux operating system, with the slogan “Avoid The Pain of Windows 8.”
The release follows 6 long months of development, and introduces many new features to the desktop.

Ubuntu 12.10 – Blurring The Boundaries

Ubuntu 12.10 is, in many ways, the “concept album” of releases. It’s packed to the rafters with new features that blur the distinction between web and desktop.
This is most visible with the introduction of ‘Unity Web Apps’ – an innovative feature that allows over 30 popular websites to ‘integrate’ into the Ubuntu desktop as if they were a normal application.
Once added, apps and services like GMail, YouTube, Amazon and Facebook run in their own browser windows, boast Unity features like quicklists and notification alerts, and hook into Ubuntu’s indicator menus and HUD.
This focus on treating web apps as equal citizens to their desktop counterparts has a profound impact on user experience. Or to put it another way, the ‘gulf’ between the two becomes blurred – and blurred for the better.
But why the change? Canonical’s CEO Jane Silber explains:

“Ubuntu 12.10 is the operating system for the multi-device era. It makes life significantly easier for users by adapting Ubuntu to the way people really access their content today: online and on the hard drive, at work and at home, on the phone and, of course, on the PC.”
