The Ubuntu developers are moving quickly to bring you the absolute latest and greatest software the Open Source community has to offer. The Oneiric Ocelot Beta 1 Release of Ubuntu 11.10 gives a preview of the next version of Ubuntu.

Upgrading from Ubuntu 11.04

To upgrade from Ubuntu 11.04 on a desktop system, press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘11.10' is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

To upgrade from Ubuntu 11.04 on a server system: install the update-manager-core package if it is not already installed; launch the upgrade tool with the command sudo do-release-upgrade -d; and follow the on-screen instructions. Note that the server upgrade is now more robust and will utilize GNU screen and automatically re-attach in case of e.g. dropped connection problems.

    I installed this yesterday, (clean install) hoping to take advantage of new print drivers for Canon. This version is useless for me. The endless loop system error + no more Gnome 2. (I don’t like unity) I might try Oneiric again when final version is ready and Gnome 3 gets polished up. I’ve been using Ubuntu since 2006 and it seems devs are really pushing releases out too fast. Good luck with ‘beta 1’. I call it ‘alpha2’.

    Are there any Ubuntu 11.10 LAB or WORK books available to use for learning the product in a more real hands-on sense ?
