Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 3

I only had a little time today to play with Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 3, so here are a few of the new features and some thoughts:

  • The PulseAudio sound server is enabled by default.
  • PolicyKit is beginning to be integrated into the administrative tools. This allows programs such as Sevices settings to be run as the normal user, and be “unlocked” only when needed.
