Today, I downloaded the daily build of Ubuntu 11.04 and decided to take it on a test drive of an Acer Aspire One 532H Netbook. The latest daily build of Ubuntu 11.04 has seen a dramatic improvement in functionality when compared to the previous Alpha Release.
The main thing that I like is that the application side-bar dock now auto-hides! This is a huge improvement over the previous version of the Unity desktop.
The desktop still seems to be a bit slow, but I think this may just because I was running the OS off of a USB thumb drive. It is also very buggy, in that you are quite sure if the menus or applications are going to come up when when you click on them. But that is expected in a daily build.
The other change I noted was that Open Office has been replaced, and the main browser is a beta version of Firefox 4, which came up with an annoying "Test Pilot Study" pop-up. Ugh.
