Ubuntu 10.04's Nouveau Stack Gets Ready

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the slated features for Ubuntu 10.04 
| early on in its development cycle was 
| support for the Nouveau graphics driver on 
| NVIDIA hardware since it's much better than 
| the xf86-video-nv driver mess and has a much 
| brighter future, which is especially 
| important with 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" being a 
| Long-Term Support (LTS) release. This was 
| prior to Nouveau going mainline with Linux 
| 2.6.33, but Ubuntu Lucid is running with the 
| Linux 2.6.32 kernel so as a result Nouveau's 
| DRM was back-ported. 


Should you upgrade your Ubuntu - and how? 


My (Updated) Experiences with Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| While I almost completely switched to Arch 
| Linux for all of my computers, my wife is 
| still an Ubuntu girl, and probably always 
| will be. She just loves it, and all of her 
| computers run it. She recently purchased a 
| netbook that came with Windows 7, and she 
| immediately wanted me to wipe it and put 
| Ubuntu on it. While I offered to install the 
| UNR version (Ubuntu Netbook Remix) on it she 
| made it clear that she just wanted standard 
| Ubuntu, and thatâs what I did. In addition, 
| I inherited a netbook as well, though I 
| decided that I would give the UNR edition a 
| try.

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?

| 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?
