Many important features and updates made Ubuntu fans all over the world extremely happy and eager to upgrade. The default desktop environment for Ubuntu (GNOME) reached then a very important milestone: 2.20, bringing a huge list of changes.

"Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) was the first Ubuntu operating system to include Compiz 3D effects enabled by default. Tracker replaced Beagle as the desktop search tool of choice.

Not only that, but the Adobe Flash Player 9 could be installed just as easily, allowing the increasing number of flash-based websites to display better."
