Its the big day

Its indeed the big day. Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS will be released today amidst much fanfare and hype. I am a self confessed Ubuntu fan and like everyone else, I'm very excited about this release. 10.04 marks a paradigm change for Ubuntu as a brand as well as for the user interface of this most popular Linux OS. Although some of the changes havent been welcome, the positives have far overridden them.

Okay, now for some real insight. Frankly speaking 9.10 was very buggy when it came out. And some of the bugs even persist to this day. I hope Ubuntu 10.04 doesnt tread that path and consolidates Ubuntu's name as a stable user friendly OS. A lot has already been said about the release hence it would be boring for you, the reader, to go through all that if I were to repeat those.

Finally, these are instructions about the download:

How to Download:

Go to and download the appropriate file. It will be a .iso file. Then burn it to a CD.

How to Install:

A detailed step by step pictorial (with screenshots) illustration of the entire installation procedure has been provided in the following link:



  1. This is just a general query.. I'm using ubuntu 8.04 in my desktop. therez a problem that whenever i play farmville in facebook, i cud hear the noise in HDD.. HDD revolves faster and the system tend to restart itself. I noticed that several times it happened only when i play game in facebook. any solution for this?

    Thanks in advance,

  2. I personally havent faced such a problem. Although I use a pretty 'ancient' 160GB harddrive. I would suggest trying out farmville in another browser. If the problem persists, I would suggest reinstalling a different version of flash (or simply reinstalling flash).
