Ubuntu 7.10 released

Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) was released today. After having some not-quite-ready-for-prime-time tech support issues with upgrades to Feisty the last time around, it's probably worth waiting a week or so before upgrading. If you're setting up a new system on Ubuntu, though, it's probably the way to go.

But, here's something interesting. The front page of the Ubuntu website has a picture that looks like a dictionary defining the term “Ubuntu 7.10”. The pronunciation key says the pronunciation is “\oo-boon-too\”. I always thought it was pronounced “oo-bun-too”. You learn something new every day. (You learn more quickly if you read the FAQ. Real nerds don't read manuals? :-) ) It's not quite as earth-shattering as learning that the “i” in “Linux” is a short vowel (unless you're Linus Torvalds himself, who pronounces it as “ee”).
