Hardy Heron - Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Hardy Heron, an Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support), was released last month. It includes several new features like Firefox 3 beta, Wubi installer for windows among several others. I would always try a new ubuntu release the very day it gets released. But this time, I am presently out of my territory for a couple of months. So, I could not try Hardy Heron till now. I would post a review once I get into my zone next month. Till then, I need to satisfy myself by reading reviews by others on Hardy Heron.

Here are some of the reviews:

By the way, next Ubuntu release in October 2008 is named "Intrepid Ibex"!
