I can't say that I've been waiting patiently or otherwise for the upcoming April 2009 (9.04) Ubuntu release and my indifference is justified. There are some updates and OpenOffice.org 3.x is included in this release--blah blah blah. Frankly, this release is a yawn. I'm not disappointed by it--it happens.
Should you upgrade to it? My personal opinion is no. Wait for the October release as there should be more marked improvements in that one. The October releases seem to be better for me--at least from past experience.
Maybe the answer is to go to an annual release pattern instead of the twice yearly one. The releases would be far more anticipated and improvements more advanced. We can get minor updates like the ones 9.04 offers with apt-get or synaptic and they aren't really worthy of a whole new update.
So for all you Ubuntu fans, including me, this release should be called something like Kicked-Back Koala, Kafka-esque Kangaroo or something equally uninspired for the Emotion Cute Animal naming convention for these releases.
Ubuntu 9.04 is a snooze--sorry guys, wake me up in October.
What do you think of the latest beta versions of 9.04? Let me know if you're inspired or impressed--it could be that I'm just a Jaded Jackalope.
