Help Ubuntu 11.04 to allow you to try software before installing it
Advertisement
#1
The next version of Ubuntu, Natty Narwhal, will include the ability to try out apps before you install them. The feature right now can be accessed by installing a package, qtnx, through apt-get or otherwise. The package adds a “Test Drive” button on the software center, which will launch a full-fledged app you’re about to get into an environment.

This is quite an interesting idea, and this implementation can’t be found anywhere else. Of course this doesn’t work with all programs, but as you can see on the video, both Chrome and AbiWord seem to work in their entirety.
