It’s Ubuntu Evolution BABY!!!

Alright… I was siting on my computer with a little time to share…

I have seen several cool OS evolution, Fedora’s, and much recently I saw Window’s (they missed Millennium Edition). I have seen tons and tons of screenshots of Ubuntu screenshots on the web. So I decided to set up this little evolution for the Ubuntu desktops…

As I looked at them I remembered different moments in my last two years. It literally brought tears in my eyes. and one can only wait til Gutsy hits the mainstream :D.

This is a tribute to the Desktop Team… CHEERS GUYS…

P.S. maybe someone can do the same for Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, add infinitum… ;)

    Don’t use evolution and baby in the same sentence. It always remember me this clip from Pearl Jam

    “Its evolution, baby”

    Very cool. I think looking back, the best background goes to “Hoary”. It looks much more unique than the others. This is a great retrospective.

    Being Ubuntu a ‘beautified’ Debian clone, sinceresly … i’m not seeing any sign of evolution here. Really. Oh well, wait: promoting closed source and propietary tools like Launchpad … yeah, LOL.

    Nah, Ubuntu is only a popular distro for extremly newbie users, without any real technical merit implemented (except all the work … copied from Debian). It’s a shame that all the hard work done by Debian isn’t being recognized … a shame. Nice move, Mr. Shuttleworth. A really nice marketing move. Shame on you.

    Somebree… we passed that page a couple of years ago…

    Here’s the hint… Launchpad is opening up ;)
