Sorry for the late post folks.. Now its time for me to introduce Ubuntu 10.04: Lucid Lynx..
In a video message to attendees of UbuCon Atlanta, Shuttleworth said that 10.04 would be based on the GNOME 2.0 desktop and would extend the horizontal server scalability of Debian into cloud computing. Releases after Lucid Lynx would include the GNOME 3.0, which works on the desktop.
Lucid Lynx will be the third version of Long Term Support of Ubuntu version. LTS releases are supported for three years for desktops and five years for servers.
“This is something that we get by virtue of the fact that we work with free software, you just couldn’t do this with proprietary software because you don’t have the visibility on the planning horizon,” Shuttleworth said.
“Delivering Ubuntu 10.04 as an LTS, is the definitive proof that that two-year cadence works.”
