Welcome to the Oneiric Ocelot edition of Kubuntu, an open source Ubuntu flavor built around the productive, beautiful and modern KDE Software Compilation desktop environment. It is designed to be used by end-users on home or small office computers as their main operating system.

Available for download as 32-bit and 64-bit Desktop/Alternate CDs

Kubuntu 11.10 was officially announced by Canonical on October 13, 2011 along with other Ubuntu flavors, and supported until May 9, 2013. It can still be downloaded as Alternate and Desktop CDs for the 64-bit and 32-bit hardware platforms.

While the boot loader of the Desktop CD has not been modified, it still allows users to quickly start the distribution and choose if they want to try or install it, boot an existing operating system from the first drive, run a memory diagnostic test, as well as to check the bootable medium for defects (only if using a CD media).

Uses the same modern and productive KDE desktop environment

The distribution uses the same modern and productive KDE desktop environment that was used in the last five releases, providing users with a traditional and familiar layout comprised of a single taskbar from where the user can launch apps, cycle between virtual workspaces and interact with running programs.

Default applications include the Amarok music player, Rekonq web browser, KMail email client, K3b CD/DVD burning software, Kontact personal information manager, Dolphin file manager, Kopete instant messenger, Gwenview image viewer, Okular document viewer, KTorrent torrent downloader, Quassel IRC client, and the entire LibreOffice office suite.

Bottom line

All in all, Kubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) is yet another stable, powerful, modern and productive operating system based on the latest KDE SC and Ubuntu technologies. It is no longer supported with software updates or security patches and has been archived for historical purposes only.
