In his recent comments to Network World, Mark Shuttleworth provided a number of clues as to what will be in the next major version of Ubuntu: version 11.10. While many people are still getting used to Ubuntu 11.04, Natty Narwhal, it's worth paying attention to the significant changes that are coming in 11.10. In the interview, Shuttleworth made clear that in future versions of Ubuntu, Google Chrome could even replace Firefox as the browser running by default. If you thought that betrayed any Google favoritism on Shuttleworth's part, or anti-Mozilla leanings. think again. Mozilla's Thunderbird 5 is the default mail client in Ubuntu 11.10.
