,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical is developing a 2D ARM interface 
| based on Enlightenment Foundation Libraries 
| for the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 ("Lucid Lynx") 
| version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix. In other 
| Ubuntu news, Ubuntu Live CDs in Lucid Lynx 
| will boot 33 percent faster, and The Linux Box 
| will market Ubuntu.

Ubuntu live CDs now boot 33% faster!

,----[ Quote ]
| How to convince a Mac OS X or Windows user to 
| try GNU/Linux? Installing the desired 
| distribution in a Virtual Machine? Read them 
| all those FAQs about partitioning your hard 
| drive for a dual-boot system? No, no - there's 
| an easier way: live CDs or DVDs! Almost every 
| distribution (like Ubuntu, Knoppix or Fedora) 
| are capable of booting into a fully functional 
| desktop right from a burned disc. Simply 
| download the .iso image file, burn it to a CD 
| or DVD with your favorite disc burning 
| application, and reboot your machine!
| [...]
| According to Bennett, tweaks to the debconf 
| database have boosted the live CD startup time 
| nearly 33%!


Ubuntu 10.04 May Backport More Kernel DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| The decision to stick with the Linux 2.6.32 
| kernel rather than the soon to be released 
| Linux 2.6.33 kernel for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS that 
| will be released in April is leading to a few 
| more headaches for those involved with packing 
| X.Org and the graphics components for the 
| Lucid Lynx release.



10 Days of Ubuntu 10.10 Feature Requests

,----[ Quote ]
| You may be wondering why Iâve chosen to title this article
| â10 Days of Ubuntu 10.10 Feature Requests.â  If you
| havenât already, now would be a good time to read my case
| for the one feature Ubuntu 10.04 needs.  In that article I
| make the case for Ubuntu 10.04 being a âfeaturelessâ
| release â e.g. one that focuses solely on stability and
| performance.  I stand by that opinion, and to that end I
| believe that Ubuntu 10.10 could be a great place to focus
| on a feature-heavy release (having solved all itâs
| stability and performance issues in 10.04, of course :p).
