Long-Term Support release sports user-friendly Unity interface and better battery optimisation.

The latest release of Ubuntu, dubbed Precise Pangolin , is available for download now. Officially known as Ubuntu 12.04 LTS , the LTS suffix denotes a Long-Term Support release. Unlike regular incremental versions, LTS releases receive official updates for a longer duration. Precise Pangolin will be supported for a good five years. The latest version brings quite afew revisions. For starters, the Gnome Desktop UI has been replaced with the moreintuitive and beginner-friendly Unity interface.
Another noteworthy UI addition is the HUD (Heads-Up Display), which does away with complicated menu hierarchies, to make way fora simple search box that’s activated by pressing the key. This makes it easy for Linux newbies, but will nonetheless invoke the wrath of old-schoolers. On the bright side though, this iteration plays well with portable devices, thanks to better battery optimisation providing longer run times.
