Ubuntu Gutsy ready for beta

The Ubuntu Linux team is planning to release a beta of Gutsy Gibbon (7.10), the latest version of its OS tomorrow. Progress on the latest release looks promising.

Ubuntu 7.10 will ship with the latest edition of the GNOME desktop, 2.20, released last week. Kubuntu 7.10 will ship with KDE 3.5.7, and should also include packages of KDE 4.0 rc 2 for optional side-by-side installation.
