Ubuntu 8.10 announced

While preparations for release of Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron), to be released in April, are still intensively in progress, Mark Shuttleworth yesterday announced that planning for the version after that is starting. Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is expected to be out in October 2008. For me personally, the best part of Mark’s message is this:

A particular focus for us will be pervasive internet access, the ability to tap into bandwidth whenever and wherever you happen to be. No longer will you need to be a tethered, domesticated animal – you’ll be able to roam (and goats do roam!) the wild lands and access the web through a variety of wireless technologies. We want you to be able to move from the office, to the train, and home, staying connected all the way.

That is exactly what I have been waiting to hear for quite a while. If even half of it will happen, I may be a long step closer to getting rid of the Windows partition of my laptop for good.
