Ubuntu 10.04 Test Drive 

,----[ Quote ]
| After playing around with the appearance 
| options a bit, I'm even more convinced 
| that the folks at Ubuntu have finally 
| taken their graphics overhaul idea 
| seriously. There are loads of easy 
| options for changing window appearances, 
| and even a nice bunch of attractive 
| wallpaper. This is a huge upgrade from 
| previous versions, where you got to 
| either choose a subtle variant of brown, 
| or go on the hunt for your own high-
| quality wallpaper.


Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Review

,----[ Quote ]
| There were a few things that I didnât 
| care for, such as the clashing of colors 
| and the fact that there are games 
| installed rather than GIMP or VLC instead 
| of the utterly horrid Totem.  
| Additionally, my biggest annoyance is 
| that while Ubuntu went out of its way to 
| revamp its entire look, they went to 
| someone elseâs look.  As for the look 
| itself, itâs okay.  The new logo is very 
| nice.  I liked it quite a bit.  As far as 
| the distro is concerned I was pleased.  
| HUGE improvement over the Koala.  
| Overall, I would rate Lucid Lynx an A- 
| for newbie friendliness and usage and a 
| B+ for looks.  That last would have been 
| an A- but Iâm not fond of copycats.

| Linux at all. Well, here are 10 new or
| improved features that make Ubuntu 10.4
| worth caring about.


Life with Linux: Notes on installing Ubuntu 10.4 LTS

,----[ Quote ]
| This was on my personal home desktop, a
| rather powerful machine I built earlier
| this year (6Gb memory, quad core, 2Tb
| disk) specifically for 3D apps and
| personal software development. Itâs a dual
| boot machine, so when I did the upgrade on
| the Ubuntu half I wanted to make sure the
| other side remained intact.
| [...]
| All in all this is a solid release, as far
| as I can tell so far.
| Update: Iâve switched to the new default
| Ambiance theme to get the full effect of
| the changes in the user interface. Iâve
| changed the background image (my favs are
| from InterfaceLIFT) but otherwise I should
| be living La Vida Lucid.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
