The latest version of the popular Linux distro will be available for free download on Thursday, October 29.
The new iteration promises a faster boot and login experience, a revamped audio framework, and improved 3G broadband connectivity. Ubuntu 9.10 also includes the integration of 'Ubuntu One' an umbrella name for an exciting suite of online services to provide an enhanced desktop experience, simplified backup, synchronisation, and sharing of files .
Those interested in writing applications that run on Ubuntu now have a simplified toolset called 'Quickly' which automates many of the mundane tasks involved in programming.
