Ubuntu 10.04 “Lucid Lynx” Released

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.
