    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is here!

    Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS Final Release has now arrived!
    Been using it for a while now (alpha2) and I'm liking it alot. There are some big changes in this release, some good, some bad.
    (check my website on how to change the annoying titlebar buttons)
    But overall it is a very well polished and feature packed distribution.
    I first started out on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and the project has come on leaps and bounds since those early days.
    The ubuntu community has done some great work, and should be proud of their achievements.

    Check it out at:

    Downloaded netbook wubi version - can't see my wireless card and some idiots moved window buttons from right to left.

    Then I had window popup armegeddon when I tried going into network settings to see if I could sort the wireless out.

    Remind me what Mr Shuttleworth was saying about how this release would stop people taking back pre-installed Linux machines to the shops???

    I'm sure I'll get in working one day

    regards

    This is on an acer aspire one 751 11in netbook

    Havn't tried the netbook version and wubi yet. Regarding your problem with window buttons, as stated before my guide should help you with this MikeGlover.co.uk

    Installed it last night and actually really like the whole feel. Gnome feels less 'old-school' in this release too. (Can't stand KDE)

    Hoping to test out Visual GTK# with C# and mono this weekend. See how it compares to .net.

    Not an orig Asus eeePC running 9.10 it isn't

    Not enough free space to run the upgrade on top of existing install
    10.04 is 0-2 with me at the moment

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean; sudo apt-get autoclean
    first.

    tried the apt-clean I'll try the autoclean

    Just tried the upgrade from the GUI - it only wanted 32.4M of extra memory - so close but no banana

    0-3

    No luck with auto clean - I'll just make a usb boot drive and re-install it with that

    Just installed and configured, had a bit of a 'mare with the themes as I kept my /home partition coming over from mint9. All sorted now, and wow. I'll have to get used to it again, but the sub 30second boot to desktop is awesome. Most of that is just bios checking itself.... now how do I cut that time down.

    I've just upgraded my netbook (Acer Aspire One) to 10.04 LTS Netbook Remix, but can't get either of the two SD card readers to work. I might try the plain Desktop version instead. Looking forward to seeing how well the new LTSP works on the server version - going to try that out with Samba or Likewise Open.
