The Ubuntu development team have just released the very first Alpha release of Quantal Quetzal. They are laying the foundation for the next big release cycle. The new OS contains the latest Linux Kernel 3.4 and some other updated software versions.
Don’t get disappointed folks… This release has only a small amount of changes. According to Ubuntu, the final release will be a a lot different from the existing one. Remember… They are going to change the design and move away from the old brownish colors. Some big changes are waiting for the future releases… So, please be patient!
