New Application Stack in Ubuntu 10.04 

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 10.04, which will appear next April 
| 2010 as Canonicalâs long-anticipated third 
| LTS (Long Term Support) release, will 
| feature substantial changes in the lineup 
| of applications installed by default.  
| Hereâs a look at the biggest ones, with 
| some thoughts.
| Judging by the controversy over the 
| replacement of Pidgin with Empathy, many 
| Ubuntu users do not take kindly to 
| decisions to modify the application stack 
| in a default installation.  Even when the 
| change arguably does not compromise 
| important features and despite the fact 
| that 35,000 applications are always just 
| an âapt-get installâ awayâfor those who 
| have the bandwidth, at leastâchange tends 
| to spawn a lot of ire.


Ubuntu 10.04 May Backport Newer Kernels

| By the time Ubuntu 10.04 rolls around in 
| April, the Linux 2.6.33 kernel will have 
| been released and the Linux 2.6.34 kernel 
| will be in development, but the Ubuntu 
| developers have decided to stick it out 
| with the 2.6.32 kernel for a maximum 
| stabilization period, especially since 
| this is a Long-Term Support release. 


Light Weight Ubuntu Kernel

| One of the biggest aspects of Gentoo is 
| that you compile your own kernel. This was 
| the most painful parts for me until I 
| finally got the hang of it. The default 
| Gentoo kernel is minimal and requires you 
| to enable some extra features before 
| compiling.



How The X Stack In Ubuntu 10.04 LTS May Look

| Canonical's Ubuntu Developer Summit for

| taking place this week in Texas, but
| happening right now on the Ubuntu-X mailing
| list is a discussion about what the X.Org
| plans are for Ubuntu Lucid.
