Ubuntu's Lucid plans

,----[ Quote ]
| In April the Ubuntu developers will 
| release Lucid Lynx, the next version of 
| the popular Linux operating system. Also 
| known as Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx will be 
| the third long term support (LTS) release 
| from Ubuntu and is likely to have a strong 
| focus on stability and security and will 
| be geared at appealing to enterprise users 
| and hardware makers. Ubuntu releases new 
| versions every six months with LTS 
| releases supported for five years on 
| servers and three years on desktops.


Ubuntu 10.04 will bring panel overhaul, social network menu

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical has revealed plans to bring 
| social networking integration and GNOME 
| panel improvements in the next major 
| version of Ubuntu. Notification area icons 
| will be replaced by a new application 
| indicator system. The panel will also 
| feature a new Me Menu for setting 
| messaging status.


My kid will, in fact, do it with Ubuntu (and other 2010 predictions)

| There he is, kid #4: his t-shirt says it 
| all. By way of disclosure, I got that t-
| shirt for free from the good folks at 
| Canonical. I donât, however, think he will 
| end up using Ubuntu because they gave me a 
| free t-shirt. I think heâll use Ubuntu 
| because he already does. I also think that 
| Ubuntu use will continue to spread beyond 
| the kids of the sorts of people to whom 
| Canonical sends t-shirts. Ubuntu is not 
| just for geeks anymore.


So a Man Walks Into a Bar and Asks for an Ubuntu on the Rocks 

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier today, I had to go to IT Square in 
| Laksi to do some banking. Knowing what a 
| geek that I am, and since  there are ten 
| branches closer than the IT Square one, 
| you'd be forgiven for assuming that I went 
| to bank there as an excuse for computer 
| shopping, but you'd be wrong. I was 
| required to go to that specific branch. 
| After the baning, though, my gf and I 
| walked around a little.
| She was checking out laptop bags, and my 
| attention went to the Acer display just 
| outside the bag store. To my shock, there 
| was a low-end laptop (about USD400) with a 
| localized version of Ubuntu on the 
| computer. There was a special Acer desktop 
| background, and the menus were in Thai.  
| The next computer had the same system. 
| Hmmm. The specs described the computer as 
| having Linpus Linux installed (pictured 
| above), but the system was definitely 
| Ubuntu. There were about twelve models on 
| display, but some of them weren't on.

| functionality. Starting today, if you want 
| to burn DVD on Ubuntu, you can enjoy the 
| best video quality using our DVD Ranger.



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.
