Yesterday Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha 5 was released and besides shipping with a number of updated packages and the Ubuntu One client along with Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud images, the Ubiquity installer shipped with its new slide-show feature enabled. Now during the Ubuntu installation process from the desktop LiveCD, rather than just showing a status bar it also advertises various features of this Linux operating system.

For those that have not yet tried Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha 5, below are six screenshots from the Ubiquity install process. Of course, other Linux distributions have offered similar functionality in their installers for years. Nevertheless, this is something new in the Ubuntu land. The final release of Ubuntu 9.10 is due out in late October.
