Ooooh yes, it's that time of the year again, folks. It's time for the world to partition hard drives, create new virtual boxes, burn hundreds of CDs, format USB sticks and pillage every Windows OS they pass by. I've always loved the .04 Ubuntu releases more, not necessarily because they were better, but because they came with the spring, and I tend to like things more when it's warm outside.
2012 is a special year: the Precise Pangolin release will be supported for 5 years, on both desktops and servers, so if your business considered switching to Ubuntu, now is a great time to take that step. Also, it's cockchaffer year, a reason for massively increased joy levels and overall ADD manifestations in my cat. Obviously, I'm a tad more excited of the former event.
