The Ubuntu developers team is pleased to bring you the first set of developer images that
capture the current fleeting reality of our Precise Pangolin
(Ubuntu 12.04 Alpha 1) as it starts to emerge.
Pre-releases of Precise Pangolin are *not* encouraged for anyone
needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running
into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however,
recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in
testing, reporting, and fixing bugs as we work towards getting
this LTS release ready.
Alpha 1 is the first in a series of milestone CD images that will be
released throughout the Precise development cycle. The Alpha images
are known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer
bugs, while representing a very recent snapshot of Precise.
