Ubuntu 10.10 ‘Maverick Meerkat’ officially released: get your cloud storage, paid apps and Unity UI now

On the tenth day of the tenth month in the tenth year (read: today) Ubuntu Linux has hit its 10.10 revision, though it’s mostly more of the same. The new Unity desktop interface makes cramped netbook screens more organized, software purchase support might legitimize Ubuntu as an app platform, Ubuntu One brings a free 2GB of Dropbox-like cloud storage to automatically synchronize files and folders, and streams music to Android and iPhone devices too… for a price. There’s also full multitouch support, if you’ve got the hardware. “There’s never been a better time to try Ubuntu,” the open-source community cries, and they’re probably right — early reviewers claim this Maverick Meerkat build is one of the best they’ve tried. Find the 700MB downloads at our source link, or in torrent trackers all around the world.
