Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope

Ubuntu 9.04, estimated to ship in early April next year, has been given the code name - Jaunty Jackalope. Mark Shuttleworth says that Ubuntu is now ready to compete against the popular Windows and Mac operating systems. He expects to see Ubuntu being shipped on millions of devices in the upcoming year.

This new distribution will be mainly focusing on the boot time, and the overall performance of the operating system. The development team are also planning on bringing better web interrogation to the desktop.

"There are some specific goals that we need to meet in Jaunty. One of them is boot time. We want Ubuntu to boot as fast as possible—both in the standard case, and especially when it is being tailored to a specific device"
