Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has announced the availability of the first Ubuntu 10.04 beta release. The new version of Ubuntu, codenamed Lucid Lynx, is scheduled to arrive in April. It will be a long-term support release, which means that updates will be available for three years on the desktop and five years on servers. Although the Ubuntu developers have largely focused on boosting stability for this release, they have also added a number of noteworthy new features and applications. One of the most visible changes is the introduction of a new theme - a change that is part of a broader rebranding initiative that aims to update Ubuntu's visual identity." It might just be me, but I find the new theme ghastly. Compare this to this (my desktop). Oh, and Metacity - I can has anti-aliasing?

I've had a real problem with Grub2. I have to hand edit several config files just to get it to boot my laptop. I have to turn off UUID, turn of the "search" section, etc. It took a lot of googling to figure out. I don't believe it is a good system. The files are spread out all over the place. I have had no such problems with the original grub (or LILO). I'm steering clear of Grub2 for now.
