    After four Alpha releases, the first Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long-Term Support) beta has been released. Codenamed "Hardy Heron", 8.04 LTS comes in two versions: desktop and server edition. These new Linux-based distributions sport a number of application and file browsing improvements, as well as the Wubi installer: a new Windows-based installer which allows users to install and uninstall Ubuntu like any other Windows application. Please see the release notes for details.

    #1 It's beta, not alpha. It's quite stable, if you want to try it.

    #2 Why are you "compiling" anything with Ubuntu?

    um my bad i had the wrong word stuck in my head....

    #2 i make my disk with ubuntu because its a good OS and imo a better distro for ppl to have if they dont have an OS already on their system which is why i included it in my diagnostic CD with DSL ...DSL if you want a small quick linux Ubuntu if you want a slightely bigger more usefull/full fledged complete Os...

    A beta means that it's not as stable as you think. I have managed to experience Firefox 3 Beta 4 crash while doing something that doesn't crash Firefox 2.

    Granted I am still using it.
    Although I wouldn't mind trying the beta, I would rather stick with 7.10 for now.
