Countdown Begins, Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) Will be Available Within Few Hours

It has been six months in the making and has occupied the time of a cast of thousands, finally the Debian derived GNU/Linux distribution we have all been waiting for is here. Ubuntu 11.10 the Oneiric Ocelot is released on October 13th. Finally that day came. But we need to wait a little more to fell the 11.10 oneiric Ocelot. 
VOGH talked with Ubuntu  developer Team about this release and accroding to them:-
"Today we release Ubuntu 11.10: Oneiric Ocelot after a busy six months of work. Thank you to everyone who participated in this release and put their brick in the wall. We had many wonderful contributions from developers, testers, translators, authors, advocates, accessibility folks, marketeers, programmers, governors, and more. I am looking forward to seeing the release hit the tubes. :-)
This week I have been in London all week for the release week, and it has been a hectic, but useful week. I also used this week to take advantage of the timezone and hop on the phone with some community members on this side of the pond. Thanks to all those for the calls.
Speaking of this side of the pond, I am excited to be able to go to the London release party which takes place tonight on Thu 13th Oct 2011 from 6.30pm at The Cask Pub at 6 Charlwood Street, Pimlico, London, SW1V 6EE. Thanks to the Ubuntu UK team for putting together the party, and it looks like there will be a great crowd there."
