From Warty Warthog to Oneiric Ocelot- Seven Years of Ubuntu [Editorial]

The first Ubuntu

Ubuntu Warthy Warthog was the first Ubuntu and we can take a walk down the memory lane with this video of Warty.

The announcement statement of Warty Warthog said,

The warm-hearted Warthogs of the Warty Team are proud to present the very first release of Ubuntu!

Ubuntu is a new Linux distribution that brings together the extraordinary breadth of Debian with a fast and easy install, regular releases (every six months), a tight selection of excellent packages installed by default and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of security and technical support for every release.

You get a distribution that is:

  • absolutely committed to free software, every end-user application on the CD is free software
  • 100% free of charge, and the Ubuntu team is committed to keeping Ubuntu free of charge
  • security updates for the distribution at no charge for 18 months for any release
  • updated to the latest desktop and kernel and infrastructure every six months with a new release
  • supports x86, amd64 and ppc processors, with additional ports under way

I still remember when Karmic Koala came out and Ubuntu completed five long years of delivering a great operating system.
