If you’re looking for a weekend project, having a go at the latest Ubuntu (beta) release would be a fun one. Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, a long-term support (LTS) release, is now in beta and available for download from Canonical.

Being an LTS release, there aren’t a lot of earth-shattering changes, but Canonical has definitely tweaked things a bit. New features include making Rhythmbox (which includes access to the Ubuntu One Music Store) the default music player, an update to LibreOffice (v.3.5), some minor interface improvements, increased support for ClickPad devices (where a physical button is built into a trackpad), and more.

Overall, version 12.04 looks a lot like version 11.10, which is to say that it’s simple and beautiful. Do yourself and the open source community a favor and take it for a spin.

I'm downloading it now. I always take their latest for a spin.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I am so looking forward to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS that I have not bothered to upgrade to LO 3.5 on 11.10 because its only a couple of months for the next release & LO 3.5 comes automatically with Precise Pangolin.
