Ubuntu 10.10’s new installer slideshow oozes class

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

They say first impressions count and Maverick has certainly taken that to heed with its redesigned slideshow to play during installation.

Do note that many of the images/text in these slides are still place holders, not final, are there for testing and/or remain to be updated.

Each of the slides is colourful, informative and – perhaps most importantly in my mind – demonstrative. That is, they show the Ubuntu desktop/apps/features in question actually in action.  This is a great way to familiarise newcomers to the style and layout of Ubuntu right from the get-go.
