An updated batch of slides for playback during Ubuntu installation have landed in Ubuntu 11.10.

Rather than bore users with ‘nothing but a progress bar’ during the installation of Ubuntu users are shown a slideshow that highlights Ubuntu features present with in Ubuntu. This not only helps newcomers to the Ubuntu desktop learn what it can do, but also passively inform those upgrading of changes/new features too.

The ‘new’ batch of slides for Ubuntu 11.10 are presented below. The layout, tone, text and imagery used in them does not deviate massively from that seen in the installer of Ubuntu 11.04.

The current batch lacks an “Email/Chat” slide, but this is presumably an oversight.

Remember that the slides are still subject to change between now and October so be forgiving of any typos or glaring errors – they’ll be fixed shortly.
