Canonical and the Ubuntu developers have released version 11.04 of their popular Ubuntu Linux distribution, code named as “Natty Narwhal”. 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” has brought with it not just major version jumps for nearly every core app and service, but also a unified look and feel based on a new desktop shell called “Unity”  for both the desktop and netbook users. Users who don’t like the “Unity” interface, can select “Ubuntu Classic” from the login screen to switch to a more familiar, and GNOME-like desktop. A detailed list of changes can be found in the release notes.
