Ubuntu Linux 6.06 “Dapper Drake” (where do they get these names?!) is released tomorrow, I must remember to download the DVD.

I might install that on Greivous instead of Fedora 5 as I already have two FC5 boxes, and CentOS5 or FC6 won’t be out until Sept/Oct.

It’s billed as a server OS with 5 year Long Term Support, and is getting quite a lot of commercial interest these days, certainly from VMWare, IBM, Freespire and Sun, so might be an idea to get some real experience with it (and therefore Debian). You can even get certification like with RHEL.

I’ve tried Warty Warthog 4.04


and Breezy Badger 5.10


under VMWare, but never on the bare metal.

On a kinda related note, The Pirate Bay got shut down, so that’s one place that won’t be hosting the Ubuntu torrent!
