Ubuntu 10.10 Beta

    After the third alpha, a lot of changes really happened. Download links can be found at the end, but for now a few screenshots.

    (Based on the “OMG! Ubuntu” review, which now, incidentally, is difficult to access due to DNS issues)


    Theme of design

    The main theme of Ubuntu design has been improved for Maverick, it softened gradients, added animations, beautiful buttons and much more.


    The main set of Humanity icons now has new direction buttons and toolbar buttons, a house icon and icons for various devices, such as iPod touch, Motorola Droid, and even the hard drive.


    You will find 17 new wallpapers. Quality this time is undeniable - from beautiful landscapes to abstract images and architecture.

    Sound menu

    The new sound menu has lost some initially implemented functionality (for example, support for playlists), but buttons have been fixed in it, the font size has been reduced to reproduce information about the information track, etc.

    Application center

    In the application center will be part of paid programs and introduced the feature "Where is it?» ( For Where is IT? ) To find the program after installation.


    The installer now not only looks better, it also reduced the number of steps.

    He already installs the system while you fill out personal information! He offers to immediately download updates during installation! And ... he suggests installing support for multimedia playback! Sorry for the three exclamation points, but in my opinion, this is an example of changes that really improve usability.

    Ubuntu Netbook Edition

    Ubuntu Netbook Edition users will notice a ton of improvements to the new Unity interface when upgrading to beta.

    The new Dash browser for files and applications, many new icons, an improved theme, the default AppMenu, and Evolution and Banshee interfaces optimized for the netbook.
