Submission + - Oneiric Ocelot (Ubuntu 11.10) Alpha 3 Review (

sfcrazy writes: No one reviews an alpha, but we do. The aim of this review is not to 'test' the upcoming version of Ubuntu, but to see what's new and what's improved. One of the most notable features are the changes made to the notification bar or the Indicator menu. It now shows available updates and printers connected to the PC along with bluetooth and start-up applications. Ubuntu 11.10 is using the latest verion of Gnome. It is running on current unstable version (3.1.4) and is on its way to GNOME 3.2. So, you get all the goodies of Gnome 3 with familiar and more stable Unity Shell instead of Gnome 3 shell.
