A Look At Ubuntu Lucid Plymouth Themes [Screenshots And Short Video]

,----[ Quote ]
| I've finally got Plymouth up and running on 
| Ubuntu Lucid. Well, up and partially 
| running - I only get to see the new 
| Plymouth at shutdown, but considering I 
| have an Nvidia graphics card and only 
| installed Ubuntu Lucid in VirtualBox so 
| far, I'll take what I can get.
| Let's take a look at the Ubuntu Lucid 
| Plymouth themes (already included in 
| Lucid). I should have made this post about 
| the "Solar" theme only, as it's the only 
| one which is nice, the others are either 
| static or just a "glow".


Ubuntu Help Centre To Get Major Overhaul For Lucid?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu "Help and Support" system may be 
| getting a overhaul in time for Lucid.
| Developers feel the majority of users are 
| either simply unaware that the help system 
| exists or find it overly complicated to 
| navigate and draw information from.


Ubuntu Showcase Videos are Awesome Adverts

,----[ Quote ]
| These videos can be a great way to 
| demonstrate the power of Linux/Ubuntu to 
| family members, friends or the hardened 
| Linux sceptic. What better way to prove 
| your OS is good looking, useable and 
| feature-filled than to show your good 
| looking, useable and feature-filled 
| desktop?!



Ubuntu 10.04 alpha 2 brings Pitivi, panel changes

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu development community announced
| today the availability of Ubuntu 10.04 alpha
| 2, a new prerelease of the next major version
| of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. This alpha
| is the first Ubuntu release to completely omit
| HAL, a Linux hardware abstraction layer that
| is being deprecated in favor of DeviceKit.


Canonical releases Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu developers have announced the
| availability of the second alpha release of
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, code named "Lucid Lynx".
| The latest development milestone is the
| second of three planned alpha releases,
| which will be followed by two beta releases
| and then a release candidate.


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 Has Plymouth

,----[ Quote ]
| A few minutes ago, the Ubuntu development
| team unleashed the second alpha version of
| the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)
| operating system, due for release in late
| April this year. As usual, we've downloaded
| a copy of it in order to keep you up-to-
| date with the latest changes in the Ubuntu
| 10.04 LTS development.


Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Removes HAL

,----[ Quote ]
| "HAL" unfortunately isn't the heinous
| supercomputer from Kubrick's film 2001, but
| Ubuntu's Hardware Abstraction Layer between
| Ubuntu's hardware and software. It has now
| disappeared entirely from the current
| Ubuntu 10.04 test version, it's function
| being taken over among other things by
| DeviceKit. The advantage to this, according
| to the official announcement, is that
| Ubuntu has a faster boot and startup from
| hibernate time.


Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Benchmarks With Early Fedora 13 Numbers

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, there are both good and bad
| performance improvements for Ubuntu 10.04
| LTS Alpha 2 in relation to Ubuntu 9.10.
| Most of the negative regressions are
| attributed to the EXT4 file-system losing
| some of its performance charm. With using a
| pre-alpha snapshot of Fedora 13 and the
| benchmark results just being provided for
| reference purposes, we will hold off on
| looking into greater detail at this next
| Red Hat Linux update until it matures. You
| can run your own tests though if you wish
| using our open-source Phoronix Test Suite
| benchmarking platform.


What's Coming In Lucid Alpha 2?

,----[ Quote ]
| The second Alpha release of Ubuntu 10.04
| Lucid Lynx is due for release next Thursday
| (14th January) but what can you expect to
| find inside it?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
