Ubuntu Live CD Milestone Release
Posted on: 01/27/2005 02:38 PM

The Ubuntu development team have reached their first milestone in the production of the Live CD version of the upcoming release of Ubuntu codenamed "Hoary Hedgehog." This edition features a completely redesigned system for creating Live CDs.

While some people have tried rough previews, this is the first proper milestone for the live CD version. Anyone, especially folks who are using our previous release (4.10 "Warty Warthog"), are encouraged to try this out.

The Live CD runs completely off of the CD and will not touch any of the data on your hard drive so it is:

- A fantastic way to get a preview of new features in the upcoming Ubuntu release without upgrading your system.

- A chance to use the Ubuntu Live CD on systems which were not supported by the Ubuntu 4.10 Live CD. The new edition supports a wider variety of hardware, including PowerPC and AMD64 systems.

- A great way to help test support for your hardware in the new release and give feedback.

You can get the latest version of the CDs here, via HTTP or

Additionally, daily snapshots of the Live CD as it evolves between now and our release in April can be found here:


All feedback should be sent to the Ubuntu development list at: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
