Ubuntu being an open source initiative is bound to be a constantly changing environment. There have been around 15 releases of Ubuntu so far and the 16th is all set to roll out in April of 2012. The upcoming entrant nicknamed the "Quantal Quetzal" has been reviewed and previewed by many Linux geeks and has been found to be very efficient.

All its Alpha and Beta releases have ensured the fixing of majority of the bugs arising during user testing. We expect the final version to be released soon to incorporate a new look and feel in the Ubuntu Line-Up.
