Latest Ubuntu delivers on the promise of Open Source

While millions consider whether to pay for Vista, the Ubuntu project  
releases its secure, high performance, free desktop and server editions.

LONDON, April 16, 2007 – For users wanting a secure, feature rich  
alternative to Microsoft Windows, Canonical Ltd., the commercial sponsor  
of Ubuntu, announced today the Thursday release of Ubuntu version 7.04.

Ubuntu is the award-winning Linux distribution for the desktop, laptop,  
thin client and server which brings together the best of open source  
software every 6 months. Ubuntu 7.04 desktop edition includes a  
ground-breaking Windows migration assistant, excellent wireless networking  
support and improved multimedia support.

Ubuntu 7.04 server edition adds support for hardware facilities that speed  
up the use of virtual machines as well as other improved hardware support,  
making it an excellent choice as a web, database, file and print server,  
the fastest growing area of Linux server use. Ubuntu's already outstanding  
support for thin clients is boosted with advanced print and sound support.

"In the coming months, many individuals and businesses will be making the  
decision to upgrade their existing computer systems and their operating  
systems," said Jane Silber, director of Operations, Canonical Ltd. "With  
added features to both the desktop and server editions, Ubuntu 7.04 is the  
most user-friendly version to date and is ideally suited to anyone who  
wants to make the switch to Linux and join the community of Ubuntu users.  
In fact, with this version of Ubuntu, it is easier than ever to move away  
 from proprietary platforms."

At the same time as Ubuntu, the project also will release new versions of  
Kubuntu and Edubuntu, specialized versions of Ubuntu which include the KDE  
desktop environment and educational applications, respectively.
Ubuntu Fully Supported

Used by businesses, home users, schools and governments around the world,  
upgrades to new releases will always be free of charge. Ubuntu 7.04 will  
be maintained for 18 months on both the desktop and on the server, and  
additional free support is available from the thriving Ubuntu community.  
For deployments which require additional service guarantees, full  
telephone and online support is commercially available globally from the  
professional support team at Canonical Ltd and service partners.
