Ubuntu already announced, Intrepid Ibex will be the next generation of Ubuntu after Hardy Heron. Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex scheduled will be release in October 2008 and right now is still under development.

Plans for Intrepid Ibex include improvements to mobile computing and desktop scalability as well as increased flexibility for Internet connectivity. “Our desktop offering will once again be a focal point as we reengineer the user interaction model so that Ubuntu works as well on a high-end workstation as it does on a feisty little subnotebook.
