The New Ubuntu Installer Is Now Live

About a month back, we wrote that the installer in Ubuntu 10.10 is getting a makeover. Well the new Ubiquity has arrived in the daily build of Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat.

Apart from the new looks, there are also a lot of new features in the new Ubiquity (that is the name of the installer). It allows users to install the proprietary drivers and the restricted extras during installation. This is sure to make many new users’ life a lot simpler. It also has a Wireless Network Setup and a simplified User Account setup before the installation begins.

There are still bugs though – apparently, it cannot install Ubuntu yet!

Here are some screenshots (via Softpedia)
