Ubuntu 10.04 Is Here

If you are running Ubuntu, today is your lucky day. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is now out. Check the Ubuntu website if the latest release is available for download. If not yet, it will be available later on today.

If you want to perform an upgrade instead of downloading the ISO image, just press Alt+F2 and type in “update-manager -d” (without the quotes) into the command box.

The Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘10.04’ is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

Ubuntu 10.04 Title Bar Buttons

I just spent my first minute with Ubuntu 10.04. I already don’t like it. Whose idea was it to move the Title Bar buttons to the left side? I’m not even going to link dozens of websites giving out tutorials how to move the the title buttons back to the right. And one more thing, the purple background reminds me way too much of a Mac. In the meantime, I will play around with it some more.
