Linux News Today: Canonical Makes It a Lot Easier for Newcomers to Discover the Ubuntu Flavours
Canonical’s Michael Hall had the great pleasure of announcing that the ubuntu.com website has been redesigned to make it easier for Ubuntu newcomers to discover the flavours of the world’s most popular free operating system.
It would appear that many of the new Ubuntu users complained about the fact that they are not able to easily find information about the official Ubuntu flavours and eventually download them.
Therefore, as Canonical is always listening to its ever-growing user base, the skilled Ubuntu web designers managed to put together a new page on the ubuntu.com website with details and links for the Ubuntu flavours.
“I am pleased to tell you that it has now been published at http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-flavours, along with a new row on http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ that links to that page,” said Michael Hall in the announcement.
Ubuntu MATE, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and others are now easier to find
When we say Ubuntu flavours, we mean distributions like Edubuntu, Ubuntu Studio, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, as well as Mythbuntu.
Now, many of the existing Ubuntu users know already where to get the latest releases of these official Ubuntu flavours, but if you’re new to the Linux/Ubuntu world, you should first check out http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-flavours.
There, besides the quick intro for each of the official Ubuntu flavours, you will be able to access the official websites of the respective Ubuntu-based operating systems for additional information and download links.
Best of all, download links for each official Ubuntu flavour have also been added by Canonical’s skilled web designers to the ubuntu.com’s download page, where you’ll also find downloads for the latest stable Ubuntu release and instructions on how to use the ISO images.
