Here we take a walk through of some of the installation steps for Ubuntu (to calm any fears that this is a hard process) and then a few of the notable changes and improvements in this release.
Tectonic gives you the big picture
Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon is a good, solid release. It has just enough new features (trackerd, restricted drivers manager etc) to make this a worthwhile upgrade. But don't expect gee-whiz factors, although Compiz is installed by default for users that really enjoy eye candy. As an attractive work machine Gutsy does a great job.
