Ubuntu 10.04 Now Available For Loyal Linux Users

There aren't too many Linux users out there in the consumer world, at least from a global market share perspective. But there's no doubt that Ubuntu is about as popular a variant as they come for Linux, and the newest version has just recently been released. The new version is 10.04 LTS, which is arriving right around a year after 9.10 "Karmic Koala" launched.

This new version, also known as Lucid Lynx," promises lots of worthwhile changes for those looking to upgrade, and it's also one of the most accessible for consumers that are considering a switch to a truly open-sourced operating system. Aside from being quicker on nearly every machine, with boot speeds in particular being notably improved. There's also a new suite of features, with an integrated social networking twist that fits in just perfectly with the world's obsession surrounding Facebook and Twitter.

There's also a new range of Cloud-based services courtesy of Ubuntu One, and even an Ubuntu One music store. Take that, iTunes! This new version also has F-Spot installed rather than GIMP, and Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition is also ready to be devoured by those smaller, nimbler machines. Anyone dared to download yet? Considering it as a weekend project?
