I always find dedoimedo's reviews thorough and stimulating. This one is worth a look.


Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot has a silly name, but it is a very decent and polished product. Personally, I find it extremely difficult to work with the one-dimension interface, dominated by the menu-launcher combo and no desktop interaction, but I am capable of seeing through my own subjective zeal and limitations and beyond. What I see is a handy operating system that offers a simple and clean interface and a decent experience laced with stability and quality and charm, all for free. For the first time in Ubuntu's history, this feels like a proper commercial brand.

Indeed, if Canonical is aiming at establishing a household brand, it is slowly succeeding. Ubuntu Ocelot has the necessary touch to be perceived as classy and expensive. The combination of desktop use with payware services like music and games plus cloud-based backup and sharing covers a really broad spectrum of needs for most users. Most importantly, the presentation layer is quite lovely.

I seem to remember he's already posted the link himself.
