The New Look of the Ubuntu 11.04 Server Installer!

With Natty Beta2, the Ubuntu 11.04 Server Installer received a little bit of the same aubergine love that the Ubuntu Desktop has enjoyed now for the last few releases.  Moving away from that 1980s MSDOS/PCDOS VGA blue look, the our Server installer now sports a distinctively Ubuntu color scheme!

Note that I used the Ubuntu quick install preseed to install the Ubuntu Server 11.04 Beta2 release, in a 64-bit KVM with 4 virtual CPUs, 2GB of memory, and with both the ISO and the backing qcow2 image in a tmpfs.  I captured the video with xvidcap, increased the frame rate a bit to match the music with avidemux, used pitivi to add the music to the video, and the music, of course is Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix, live from San Diego Sports Arena, May 24, 1969 on The Jimi Hendrix Experience album.
