Ubuntu 11.04 Beta 2 (Release Candidate) Available

Apr 18, 2011 by

With only 10 days left until release, users wishing to try out the operating system early will want to grab this while it’s hot. I’m using it right now and I must say I am very pleasantly surprised. Apart from Unity’s initial culture shock, I’ve found it to be an intuitive and purposeful UI, which is great since I was so worried about it pre-release.

You can download Beta 2 here;

Just for good measure, here’s a video of it in action. It already looks pretty nippy from the footage, but also remember that I am recording this using fairly memory and processor intensive screen recorder software on a netbook that has only an Intel Atom processor and just over 1GB of ram. When you think about it in those terms, this thing is damn quick.
