Ubuntu 10.04 Named ‘Lucid Lynx’

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The name of Ubuntu 10.04, the release due in April 2010, has been revealed as ‘Lucid Lynx’!


Lynx’s Meat

Lucid Lynx will be a LTS release (supported for 5 years) and will ship with Gnome 3 as a default (!).

An even faster boot time is being aimed for, along with a newer x-server.

Kubuntu 10.04 will ship with KDE 4.4.

All In A Name

I think it’s okay as a name, although it doesn’t seem as instantly ‘interesting’ as previous names, but is preferable to many of the suggestions for ‘L’ moniker release! (Lusty Lemming, anyone?!)
