    Pff,

    no offense here but only ONE bug?
    You must be kidding. I tried 12.04. LTS and I've never seen the automatic bug reporting tool in such a MASSIVE action.

    Switched to Fedora and all is good.

    Well, you see, the Ubuntu testing community has been testing the new daily build (20120627), which is the final version before Alpha 2. The Desktop i386, Desktop amd64 and Alternate i386 isos have one bug reported only.

    Never tested an Alpha, since I am not from IT but Humanities...

    What can you tell us, in terms of easy installation, setup and usage for non-geeks, please?

    How different is it, than a usual Ubuntu release, how demanding, in terms of IT pre-education and so on and so forth... You get the drift... :)

    Right: just how quaint am I (and the rest of the non-geek world :D ) to a geek? :D

    Is Alpha version any different/more difficult for non-geeks, than a regular Ubuntu version?

    Any IT pre-education needed, any serious Terminal action required etc.?!?

    No, it isn't. Just need to report bugs sometimes. The same thing after all.

    Incorrect im afraid. Also very misleading. Alpha is a very different thing alltogether.

    Alpha
    Beta
    Release candidate
    Stable release

    An Alpha release is still work in progress, early stages. It will contain many bugs, it will MOST likely be highly unstable and not recommended for use on one's main machine. NOT recommended for non geeks or those who are not IT professional's of some variation. The probability is that one would have to do a clean install to recover from the use of an alpha version.

    Beta , while still work in progress will still have bugs but less of them, in theory. Still not recommended in my opinion if you are not a geek. Slightly more stable but will eventually still require a clean install.

    Release candidate, These versions are much closer to the finished article. They will be stable although there will most likely still be the odd tiny bug. These versions are to simply iron out the creases.

    Stable release or RTM, well this speaks for itself. If your not a geek or a pro, then i would stick with Release Candidate or RTM.... In my opinion :D

    All that said Ubuntu is one of the more user friendly Linux distributions, so for a non geek its one i would reccommend. Just make sure you choose a stable version.

    Well, thank you. But since I'm an Ubuntu tester (I'm a Ubuntu geek and a quite active guy in testing), I download Alpha builds. There are even daily builds too, which are quite unstable but sometimes usable.... I will upload the official link tmr for daily builds.

    Im not trying to take anything away from you or discredit you, simply wanted to answer Gorski's question properly. Ironically your last post did that too .....

    Thanx, Alex!

    I know the general dynamics of it but my Q was specifically targeted at the mentioned Alpha... ;)
    ,
    And yes, because I know of the general release structure I was a wee bit suspicious about "only one bug reported" and so I asked the Q...:cool:

    But I was also hopeful (undying virtue of mine :D ) that maybe Ubuntu Alphas are closer to the real thing than the usual Linux development chain of events, that's all...:dunno:

    Well, ignore the "one bug" post. I was only responsible for ISO testing, and in the end it got 4 bugs. So.... But Ubuntu Alphas are usable, at least.
