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 could live with the brown and the orange of earlier iterations. This black thing, though, bothers me.

Black looks cool and hackish, but it contrasts so much with the rest of the user interface, which usually is light grey, that my eyes have to readjust when looking at the menus contra the rest of the interface. This leaves me with the feeling that I just drove into/out of a dark tunnel.
