Maverick Alpha 2

I know this post is a bit late. My mother-in-law died last week. Maverick Alpha 2 was, of course, released on schedule last Thursday (July 1). The link is here for downloading the Alpha 2 iso.

I was not able to get the Alpha 2 iso to install on my computer. In order to run Maverick, I had to click on Alt+F2, then type in update-manager -d. Now, of course, I update normally.

One thing I find worthy of notice about Maverick is that the developers have given us Alt Ctrl Del back again. A window comes up politely, asking if you want to reboot or shut down. This is a massive improvement over the last few versions of Ubuntu, where a person had to look up instructions on how to re-enable Alt Ctrl Del. It is now enabled by default.
