Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 1 Available for Download

On Thursday, September 6, Quantal Beta 1 was made available for download.  This is right on schedule.

To upgrade from Precise (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) on a desktop system, open Software Sources. Switch to the Updates tab and set “Notify me of a new Ubuntu version” to “For any new version.” Press Alt+F2 and type in “update-manager -d” (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘12.10’ is available. Then you just need to click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

Download the Beta 1:

Beta 1 images can be downloaded from a location near you. Please note: The Ubuntu Desktop images are now bigger than a standard CD, and you should use a USB or DVD for installation.

You can download Beta 1 ISOs from:

    Thanks for the notice! Not to be picky, but I think your post title should be 12.10, not 12.04. 🙂

    Oops! Thank you for catching that.
