Kubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)

,----[ Quote ]
| Hereâs a list of some ofz whatâs new in this 
| release:
| The Kubuntu logo has been updated on the | 
| splash screen and in the desktop menus
| KDE Plasma Desktop 4.4
| Linux kernel 2.6.32
| Amarok 2.3
| Installer slideshow
| Touchpad configuration
| Firefox KDE integration
| System notification updates
| Gnome application system tray integration
| The updated Kubuntu logo is fine but seems 
| to only appear on the bootsplash screen and 
| the desktop menus. Beyond that there is no 
| other branding to indicate that Canonical 
| is behind the release of this distro.


Peppermint OS: a review

,----[ Quote ]
| You get Peppermint OS, thatâs what! Brought 
| to you by the same developer responsible 
| for Linux Mint 8 LXDE Community Edition, 
| and for resurrecting Linux Mint Fluxbox CE 
| as well, Peppermint OS is a lightweight, 
| fast, stable implementation of what Kendall 
| Weaverâs vision of the perfect Linux distro 
| might be for speed and the web.
| [...]
| Peppermint OS is among the first to try a 
| lot of what itâs doing, and I think it does 
| a great job of that. The sheer speed, 
| respect for old hardware and minimal 
| resources, and stability alone make it a 
| standout, but the smooth way the Peppermint 
| team (Iâm looking at you, Kendall!) 
| implemented the webapps seamlessly with the 
| other native client-side applications makes 
| this distro feel like itâs something thatâs 
| taken the next step toward a larger 
| universe. That universe has the personal 
| computer not being simply confined to 
| running its code all by itself, but being 
| embedded and a part of the web and the rest 
| of the world as a whole.
| And thatâs something I find exciting.
| My feelings about using Peppermint are 
| overwhelmingly positive. Itâs intuitive and 
| user-friendly and I can honestly say that 
| Iâm going to leave it on this laptop for a 
| while and see how things go. So far Iâm 
| very impressed, so I want to keep using it!
| Great job, Peppermint team! I look forward 
| to whatâs coming next!

| The Peppermint distro is being developed by

| Mint Fluxbox and LXDE Editions, and Shane
| Remington, who works alongside Weaver as a
| developer at their day job at Astral IX Media in
| Asheville, N.C.
