“For the Intrepid Ibex, the development team will prepare an unbelievable desktop, with amazing performance, that will work on mostly any computer (be it a high-end workstation or an old and dusty Pentium III machine). Another major feature planned for Ubuntu 8.10 is the ability to be connected to the Internet (wireless connections) wherever you go. “We want you to be able to move from the office, to the train, and home, staying connected all the way,” said Mark Shuttleworth.

“In this release candidate, the development team introduces two new tools, the first one being System Cleaner (system-cleaner-gtk), which allows you to find and remove packages that are old or not supported by Ubuntu from the system. System Cleaner can also find different problems on the machine, such as wrong entries in /etc/fstab. The second tool is called “Create a USB startup disk” and it allows you to create a bootable USB stick in case you want to install Ubuntu from USB.”
