Ubuntu 10.04 LTS released

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Long-Term Support).
This release incorporates the Desktop Edition and the Server Edition. The
Server Edition can be used on physical servers, on Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud
(UEC), and on Amazon's EC2 public cloud. Codenamed "Lucid Lynx", 10.04 LTS
continues Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest
open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux

Looks like it's a Friday night upgrade for me! (I know how to party.)

I've been using the beta on my old ThinkPad T60p and it's been working great, so my System76 Serval Pro will likely get the new hotness tonight.

Make sure and read the links in the full post on the mailing list to see all the new features. Congrats to the Ubuntu team for another fantastic release.

Woo-hoo! Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit is installed on my Dell Vostro 1510 and all is well. Great release. I'm psyched to tinker some more, but trying to get a little work done first ;-)

Did you have any issues with external monitors on your T60p. I got it running using the Grub "nomodeset" fix but then I couldn't use the Desktop Effects. Just curious if you had a similar experience. Thx....

Actually I haven't tried external monitors with my T60p--that machine is pretty much my beater computer at this point. Both my netbook (Asus 1000HE) and my System76 Serval work fine on external monitors though. I'll give the T60p a shot when I get a chance and let you know what I find.
