There are lots of big event on the Linux Planet calendar in any given year. Twice a year we get to celebrate a new Ubuntu release, its wacky name and its interesting new innovations.
Ubuntu 12.04, the Precise Pangolin is set for official release on April 26th. It’s a big release for Canonical in that it’s an LTS (Long Term Support) providing up to five years of support for enterprises and customers. On the desktop side, this is the first LTS to include the Unity desktop, which is now more polished and precise (pun intended) than it was six months ago, when Ubuntu was last updated.
