Amazon results in Unity

The second beta release of Ubuntu 12.10 has been made available for download.

It arrives ahead of Ubuntu 12.10’s final release in just over 2 weeks time.

What’s New?

Unusually for an Ubuntu release at this late stage of development, an awful lot has changed since the release of Beta 1 – though most of it cosmetic.

Unity has been updated, tweaked and ‘finessed’; the Dash has been given slick new animations during Previews; and pair of controversial new features have made their debut…

You can see the changes from Beta 1 in the video below, or skip on down for those all-important download links.


As with anything and everything badged with the word ‘development’ I would advise against installing this beta candidate as your main OS on your main computer.

But curiosity is to be expected, so if you’re going to try this beta out play it cautious by using live media (such as a USB drive or DVD) or by installing it in a Virtual Machine.

You’ll find all the links you need – .iso, .zsync and .torrent – at the link behind the button below. Where possible you are encouraged to use the .torrent files.
