Our favorite open source distro just recently released the much improved Ubuntu 13.10 with code name "Saucy Salamander", few days ago. Let's find out what are the major and minor improvements of this new update.

Ubuntu 13.10 Now Out! Say Hello To Saucy Salamander!

What to expect?

Personally, I'm expecting to see their much improved interface and app ecosystem because it seems like they've already improved the bugs from 12.10 - 13.04 Ubuntu this time. I also have a gut feel that the Saucy Salamander is a delicious beautiful beast to work with. I've also heard that this one carrying the latest Linux kernel which is 3.11 and I'm very much excited to feel the brilliance of that kernel. :)
