"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."
