Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) Ready to Download

Oneiric has just been released and can be downloaded from the regular download site. If you prefer a torrent or or a DVD download, an alternative download page is provided.

Of course, if you are just looking to upgrade from Natty instead of doing a fresh install, you have the option of pressing Alt + F2 and typing in “update-manager -d” without the quotes. This will give you the upgrade page and allow you to click Upgrade to go to Oneiric.

It is also possible to preorder a set of Ubuntu CDs. (Shipping will start on October 20.)

    I upgraded yesterday and played with it today quite a bit. I have hardware sensors on the panel and the Compiz cube running. Still not thrilled with Unity, but it’s much more stable than it was in 11.04.

    Unity isn’t my favorite, but I’m starting to learn work-arounds. Since there are no GNOME 2 style menus, I have had to learn to search based on what the name of a program probably is or contains. And Unity is indeed much more stable than it was in 11.04.

    I’m glad you have your Compiz cube running. That is good news.

    Today I got VMWare Workstation 7.1.5 running again. Looks like I’m fully operational in a Unity sort of way. Like you, I miss GNOME 2 functionality. Maybe GNOME 3 will eventually get there. For now, I’ll just learn to live with Unity unless I get a brighter idea or totally populate the Unity panel with all of my most-used apps.
