FINALLY, the official replacement for Ubuntu Breezy Badger 5.10 has arrived! As was promised after the two month delay, Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06 has arrived on June 1st. This release is also ground-breaking as it is the first release from the Ubuntu team to offer long-term support. This LTS means three years of updates for the desktop side, and five years worth of updates for servers running Ubuntu 6.06. It is also the first time that Ubuntu has been targeted at the enterprise environment. Due to all of the massive improvements with Dapper Drake, we would recommend heading on over to Ubuntu, or to look at our screenshots, and other news posts.
