Welcome to Maverick Meerkat Alpha 1, which will in time become Ubuntu 10.10.
Pre-releases of Maverick are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.
Alpha 1 is the first in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Maverick development cycle. The Alpha images are
known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of Maverick. You can download it here:
