This morning the Ubuntu updater popped up and said that Ubuntu 11.4 was available as an update. So I told the system to proceed with the update. There are some some changes.
For one, the graphics drivers are improved, which makes everything look sharper. The side bar is hidden and if you hover the cursor over there by the side, it slides out. Then it goes away… this allows a full screen on the web pages, which means less side scrolling on some sites because of a netbook’s small screen. This is a plus. 11.4 comes with Firefox 4, which is no big deal as I had upgraded my 10.10 install to FF4 already. OpenOffice is gone, and it’s replaced with LibreOffice. Which looks about the same on the surface, but I don’t think it’s as refined as OpenOffice. At least not in my tinkering around with it. Overall, I think I’m liking it.
