Ubuntu One Software Centre
7. Software Centre
The Ubuntu One Software Centre UI has been completely overhauled. Its look and feel now resemble that of the Apple App Store. Although I don't personally find this change an improvement, the average user may feel they are on much more familiar territory. But what is really useful about this redesign is the ability to filter by ratings.
OneConf is a great tool that lets you record software information from Ubuntu One so that it can be synchronised with other computers as needed. At the moment, this information does not include application settings and configurations, but that may become available one day.

9. ARM support
That's right, you can now use Ubuntu while using an ARM processor. This change means Ubuntu will be able to support tablets. Although Canonical is certain that the big deal with ARM will be multicore processor-powered servers, I believe the bigger deal is tablets. I can only hope Ubuntu jumps on that bandwagon as quickly as possible. I want a Linux-powered tablet.
