Ubuntu has just released the newest version of its Linux distribution, 10.04 “Lucid Lynx”. Lots of new features this time around. Some highlights include:
- A new “Me Menu” that directly incorporates Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and other services into the user interface
- New music player with Ubuntu One Music Store integrated.
- Ubuntu Software Centre 2.0 – a library for browsing, downloading and installing software
- GNOME 2.30 desktop system
- Uses Linux 2.6.32 kernel
- More features here.
Overall this is one of the biggest changes in Ubuntu in years. I have been using it for a few days and so far its great. Absolutely worth upgrading.
