Default Supports multi-touch and other new features

A notable new feature for Ubuntu 10.10 is supporting multi-touch out of the box for the Netbook Edition. Desktop Edition can be installed by using the terminal command "sudo apt-get install utouch" (without quote), but I don't have a multi-touch monitor for PC yet, other than a smaller Droidpad.

Other features noted in this new release of Ubuntu:
  • Revampled installer
  • More new wallpapers
  • Ubuntu font
  • OneConf to sync installed multiple apps
  • Revampled Ubuntu Software Center
  • Support for commercial apps
  • Revamped Indicator Applet
  • Ubuntu One to stream music to your Android or iPhone, etc.
