5 reasons why Ubuntu Lucid Lynx may be a game changing release.

,----[ Quote ]
| It is not the most profitable of those in 
| its class, neither is it the oldest nor 
| the classiest. However, it is the most 
| popular and that popularity is set to 
| increase come this April with the release 
| of the LTS edition of Ubuntu Linux.
| All things being equal, the release of 
| Ubuntu Lucid Lynx is likely to be a game 
| changer in its own right and help increase 
| the awareness among more people about the 
| existence of alternatives to Windows. The 
| following five factors will definitely 
| play a crucial role in this regard.


Nouveau From 2.6.33 Prepped For Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in November we shared that Nouveau 
| would finally be pulled into the Ubuntu 
| 10.04 kernel as up to this point Canonical 
| had employed the feature-limited and 
| obfuscated open-source NVIDIA driver known 
| as xf86-video-nv. The Nouveau driver 
| became an option with Ubuntu 9.04, but it 
| was using Nouveau's DDX user-space mode-
| setting code paths that have since been 
| dropped upstream. 


Ubuntu: Enterprise Management Getting Easier? 

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, I realize new product launches 
| donât guarantee customer or IT 
| administrator success. WorksWithU plans to 
| track a range of Ubuntu enterprise 
| deployments more closely in 2010. 
| Hopefully, our efforts will reveal best 
| practices for remotely, proactively 
| managing Ubuntu in the enterprise.


Meetings, Minutes, and Mootbot

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in March 2009, I started hanging out 
| in the #ubuntu-meeting channel on Freenode 
| to see first hand how IRC meetings in the 
| Ubuntu Community are conducted. I noticed 
| there were specific actions/commands that 
| were being used in the meetings; I wanted 
| why and what they were, so I asked :-).

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?

| Lucid Lynx is due for release next Thursday
| (14th January) but what can you expect to
| find inside it?
