Hardy Heron is here

After spending the first half of the day refreshing Ubuntu.com, and the second half on IRC at #ubuntu-release-party (which was a whole lot of fun), the new Ubuntu 8.04 is finally out. I’m downloading the ISO via bittorrent right now, and I’ll be doing a clean install when it’s done. I haven’t used the betas or the release candidate, so this will be pretty new for me. I’ve heard it’s more stable than Gutsy, which is already a good start.

Incidentally, I also think they’ve done a great job with the feature list here. Clean, and easy to understand. Fabulous job there. Looking forward to the upgrade!
