Intrepid Ibex Officially Released

Filed under: GNU/Linux, Kubuntu, Linux, MSI Wind, Ubuntu, Ubuntu 64bit — Normand Bissonnette @ 12:53 am

Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex has been officially released.  I am downloading, via torrent, the 64 bit version as I am writing this.  I hope to be installing it on my laptop and main computer Saturday or Sunday at the latest.  I have already installed the release candidate on my relatively new MSI Wind I have also installed the Kubuntu Release Candidate on another box. I will do the updates on these tomorrow morning and everything will be up to date.  This will be the first time which all my computers that support 64 bit will have the 64 bit Ubuntu installed, I believe that now is the time for 64bit computing to shine.

Intrepid Ibex Release Candidate Out Now

Filed under: Linux, MSI Wind, Ubuntu — Normand Bissonnette @ 10:21 am

The release candidate for Ubuntu 8.10 (code name: Intrepid Ibex) can now be downloaded from here.  I will be installing it on my new MSI Wind.  Why have I chosen the Wind  over the Mini 9?  The size of the hard drive (80 Gigs) was the main reason.  I can’t wait to try both of them out.

I am downloading the iso file at this moment and will be installing it on the Wind before I go to work.  I’ll only be able to play with my new toy after work.  I’ll let you know how it went in a future post.
