Preview the new Installation slides for Ubuntu 10.04

The proposed slides for inclusion in the Ubuntu 10.04 installer have been made available to preview on line.

The slides, which play during installation of Ubuntu, have been redesigned to fit in with the new branding of Ubuntu 10.04 .

For anyone unfamiliar with the installer slide show the slides play during the ‘actual’ installation of Ubuntu to your hardrive and are designed to succinctly and briefly introduce new users to key applications and concepts within Ubuntu. Dylan McCall, one of the developers of the slideshow, further stresses the importance of the slideshow on his blog, saying: –

The idea is really summed up in the first slide: Through this I want to encourage new users to explore Ubuntu and really discover how awesome it is (instead of what buttons to press).

Separate slide-shows for each of the main Ubuntu ‘spins’, including Ubuntu Netbook Remix, are currently planned.
