After waiting for a long time I finally decide to take a dive into Hardy Heron when it hit the Alpha 6 stage and I am glad I did. It’s not only fast, but it also looks great.
- A new look theme, desktop background….both are cool.
- GNOME 2.21.92 with the new GNOME VFS. Its a faster and better GNOME. It also includes encryption.
- Brasero as the default CD/DVD burner.
- Transmission as the default Bittorrent client.
- Firefox 3 beta 3 — looks good, but a bit buggy…( its a beta 😀 )
- Overall, the total package is a lot faster than any other Ubuntu version.
- Another great addition is the inclusion of the Policy Kit. It asks for password only when needed. Nice feature.
- And to add icing on the cake it includes an installer which can install Ubuntu directly from Win.
- There are a few other changes, but you will need to use it to feel the change . 🙂
