Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) Beta Preview

A good overview of the newly-released Ubuntu 7.04 beta from Only Ubuntu Linux:
The Ubuntu developers are moving very quickly to bring you the absolute latest and greatest software the Open Source Community has to offer. This is the Ubuntu 7.04 Beta and it comes packed with a whole host of excellent new features including the released GNOME 2.18, the 2.6.20 kernel and much more.

Ubuntu 7.04 is the most user-friendly Ubuntu to date and includes a ground-breaking Windows migration assistant, excellent wireless networking support and improved multimedia support.
I installed this in VMWare yesterday and it's the cleanest version of Linux I've seen yet. I will note, however, that Ubuntu really needs to drop the brown color scheme as the default: It's not attractive, and while I hate to just focus on such a fluffy issue, it's the first thing I change when I boot into Ubuntu.
