Ubuntu 11.10 Launching on October 13, Version 12.04 Precise Pangolin Expected Next April

October 13th will witness the release of the next version of Ubuntu Linux, the Ubuntu 11.10 codenamed Oneiric Ocelot.

This version of Ubuntu is expected to bring numerous improved features to the Unity desktop and also an ability that will synchronize applications across multiple computers with the help of the latest Ubuntu Software Center.

Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth, however, is more excited and looking forward to the Ubuntu 12.04 which will hit the market in April next year.

Shuttleworth made the announcement (opens in new tab) that the code name for the Ubuntu 12.04 is Precise Pangolin. Also, in a blog post he mentioned that Phat Platypus, Principled, Paca and Perfidious Puku are some of the ideas that were rejected for the Precise Pangolin.

Canonical a record of releasing their latest software every 6 months and they make a grand LTS release in every 18 months.

This shows the long term support because of the fact that these versions are recommended by Canonical for individuals, businesses and other institutions that are planning to install an operating system and use it for a really long time without worrying about frequent updates that changes the look and feel of the operating system.

The countdown (opens in new tab) has already begun.
