of mirrors, and professional, commercial technical support from Canonical Ltd

About Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
- ---------------------

Highlights of this release include:

* New kernels targeted at server platforms. The server kernels are
tuned differently than the desktop kernels (providing better
performance for server applications).

* Turn-key LAMP installation for this common deployment scenario

* Improved support for clusters and SANs

"Under the hood"

* GCC 4.0.3

* glibc 2.3.6

* Linux kernel 2.6.15.6

* Niagara optimizations for gcc, glibc and kernel available by default

* Greatly improved infrastructure for automatic hardware detection and activation

* The system PATH is now set in exactly one place, /etc/environment, for
convenient administration


As always, Ubuntu includes the very best of the 100% Free / Libre application
software world, and each new release incorporates countless new features and
bugfixes from the global development community. More detailed release notes are at :
