Lucid Lynx Alpha 1 Has Been Released

Lucid Lynx Alpha 1 is the first alpha release of Ubuntu 10.04. As always, it comes with the warning not to install it on production machines. The final version will be released on April 29, 2010.

To upgrade from Ubuntu 9.10 on a desktop system, press Alt + F2 and type in “update-manager -d” without the quotes. The Update Manager will tell you: New distribution release ‘10.04’ is available. From there, click upgrade and follow the instructions.

Lucid Lynx Alpha 1 includes the latest Gnome desktop environment, Linux kernel 2.6.32-7.10, and KDE SC 4.4 beta 1.

ISOs and torrents of Lucid Lynx Alpha 1 for the Ubuntu desktop are available here.Technorati Tags: , ,

      If you have used Ubuntu at all, you have found that it is much more secure and enjoyable than Windows 7 or any other version of Windows will ever be. 🙂
