Ubuntu 10.10 Final Release is out

The new Ubuntu 10.10 is now ready for download in the final version.
There are some big changes like always with a new Ubuntu version number. The new Software Center is surely one of the highlights for the normal user. It is pretty simple now.

While I will stay with the 10.04 LTS until it's long-term support of it will be closed, it's worth a look if you want the very latest version of Ubuntu. However keep in mind, that the last 3 updates took a time before running without problems. So if you like a stable system you might want to stay with the LTS version or wait quite some time before installing it.

Ubuntu 10.10 Final Release Now Available [Downloads]: "
Ubuntu 10.10 Final Release Now AvailableEarlier this week we walked through our favorite new features in the Ubuntu 10.10 'Maverick Meerkat' release candidate; today the popular Linux distribution's final release is ready to download and install.
There aren't any glaring changes that stand out on first install from the RC, and all the stuff we love is still there: easy installation, the incredibly user-friendly Software Center, Ubuntu One's streaming music (which is on its way to getting even better), the new Ubuntu font, and the Unity interface for netbooks, to name a few. If you've been biding your time until the official release, your wait is over, so head over to Ubuntu.com to download a disk image (or just hit up Update Manager if you're already running Ubuntu). And, while you're waiting for it to install, be sure to brush up on all the new features with our screenshot tour.

Ubuntu, as always, is a free download.
