Ubuntu LTS 10.04, a Linux OS at Its Best

,----[ Quote ]
| It's convenient to have a server install 
| that's entirely separate from the desktop 
| install, and while it may not be as 
| visually slick as the desktop version, 
| that's not really what you want on a 
| server. The install was straightforward; I 
| really liked the package collections; and 
| everything was functional on first bootup. 
| Five years of support is good, and all the 
| software installed was fairly up-to-date 
| (within a couple of release points, which 
| is reasonable given the testing cycle 
| needed for a long-term release). Ubuntu 
| provides security updates regularly, so 
| any security improvements in more recent 
| releases should be rolled out to your 
| servers quickly.
| One problem I found was that the 
| documentation available online is a bit 
| shaky. In some cases, it still refers to 
| earlier releases, which isn't very 
| reassuring. However, Ubuntu is obviously 
| making an effort with its documentation, 
| and it's easier to find information than 
| it is with some other distros.
| Overall, Lucid Lynx is an impressive 
| offering and definitely something I'd be 
| happy to use for my own servers. More 
| console-driven system management tools and 
| better documentation, would make it an 
| even better option.


Ubuntu Linux for Windows Users

| The latest Ubuntu Linux release seems to 
| have been a huge hit. Review after Review 
| after Review have pretty much pegged it as 
| the next best thing since sliced bread, 
| but does this release of Ubuntu Linux live 
| up to the hype?


Canonical Delivers Ubuntu Advantage Service Offering for Linux Desktop and Server Users

| Canonical is preparing to introduce a new 
| service option for Ubuntu Linux users, 
| known as Ubuntu Advantage.
| Slated for official release on June 7, 
| Ubuntu Advantage is a comprehensive 
| service that combines systems management 
| tools, technical support, access to online 
| resources, training and legal assurance, 
| Canonical officials said.



Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx (Netbook Edition)

,----[ Quote ]
| For the last couple of Ubuntu releases Iâve
| been running the full desktop edition on my
| netbook (Acer Aspire 1).  These have run
| fairly well, and Iâve even had Compiz
| configured to run the cube and other eye-
| candy such as wobbly windows â although this
| may in part be due to its slightly upgraded
| spec (1.5gb ram). However despite swapping
| Firefox for Google Chrome there were some
| aspects that were disappointingly slow, this
| was regardless of the processor-hungry
| features that I had running.  As a result I
| decided to give the Ubuntu Netbook Edition
| a try.
| [...]
| The other advantage of upgrading to 10.04
| is that this version has long term support
| (LTS).  Which means that Ubuntu will
| provide security updates for 3 years, as
| opposed to 18 months for standard releases.


Kubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 review

,----[ Quote ]
| The installation is dead simple, just like
| Ubuntu. If you have installed any Linux OS
| lately, you should not have any problem
| installing Kubuntu Netbook Edition. I
| installed it using UnetBootin which allows
| one to make a bootable USB drive.
| Out of the box, everything worked, from
| Ethernet to Wireless LAN â everything!
| This is great as most of the netbook users
| do not like wandering over Ubuntu/Kubuntu
| forums trying everything to work. Even the
| function keys worked.


Ubuntu Linux Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve been reviewing various Ubuntu
| derivatives and this week I thought it
| would be fun to take a look at the netbook
| version of Ubuntu.
| Ubuntu Netbook Edition used to be called
| Ubuntu Netbook Remix, but Canonical
| changed the name once this distro became
| an official edition of Ubuntu.
| [...]
| Summary:      Ubuntu Netbook Edition takes most
| of whatâs great about the desktop version
| and wraps it up in a colorful, attractive
| netbook interface.
| Rating:       4/5

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
