Existing Ubuntu users can install Unetbootin (or use Startup Disc Creator) from the repositories, and use any of these application to migrate the above downloaded image to a USB Flash Drive or USB Thumb Drive. Afterwards you can boot from your USB drive, or you can burn it to a disc with Brasero, or K3b, and boot from your CD/DVD drive instead. USB is much faster than CDs or DVDs when it comes to installation time, and less chance of data corruption.

Existing Windows users can use these instructions on how to install Ubuntu for the first time if you are new to Ubuntu Linux. Find out out if you are running 32-bit or 64-bit hardware. I recommend using a USB Flash Thumb Drive to install Ubuntu OS. (Recommended):

Some key features of New Unity Include:

  • New Lock Screen: completely matches login screen with the desktop with much ease of access
  • Changes in Theme: borderless windows, antialiased corners and gradient tweaks
  • Aplication Window Spread Typing: Filters windows by typing the window name. (you will get opened firefox window by just start type Firefox)
  • Local Menus: The Applicaiton menus are available on the top bar of the Application.
