Why I Use Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| The other day I had to help my wife with her 
| work laptop.  It was really weird working in 
| a Windows environment.  It felt very foreign, 
| and I had to think really hard to find the 
| right menus.  It felt clunky and slow.  I 
| guess intuitiveness is somewhat based on 
| familiarity.  If I canât find a menu where I 
| expect it to be, then it isnât very 
| intuitive.
| So why do I use Ubuntu, because itâs better, 
| and thatâs that!


Lucid Alpha 1 â Fewer Games, Installer Changes, Impatient Friendly

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Alpha 1 was released 
| late last week and although very little 
| cosmetically has changed, weâve pointed out 
| the obvious changes below.



Plymouth Gets Pulled Into Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 9.10 didn't end up seeing
| integration of Plymouth as USplash and the
| new XSplash ended up being used. However,
| the Ubuntu development community and
| Canonical seemed to have changed their
| mind. Just uploaded to the Ubuntu Lucid
| repository for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is in fact
| Plymouth.


Plymouth Running On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

,----[ Quote ]
| For those looking to play with Plymouth on
| Ubuntu right away, it's as easy as sudo
| apt-get install plymouth when running on
| the Ubuntu 10.04 development branch.
| Yesterday we installed Plymouth on an
| Ubuntu Lucid box and recorded the video
| below.


What will Ubuntu 10.04 bring to the table?

,----[ Quote ]
| I hope you are as excited about 10.04 as I
| am. I believe this could be the Ubuntu
| release that the public would have a hard
| time turning down as its desktop OS. Not
| only will it have a very solid foundation,
| the overlaying structure will be much more
| modern looking.


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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
