Ubuntu's Lucid Lynx Linux OS Debuts With an Eye on ISVs

"The Ubuntu Linux 10.4 release codenamed the Lucid Lynx is set for general availability today, providing users with new desktop, server and cloud capabilities. Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor behind Ubuntu, is also highlighting the broad ISV support for the release.

"The Lucid release is particularly important for Ubuntu as it is the project's first enterprise Long-Term Support (LTS) release since the 8.04 Hardy Heron release in 2008. Ubuntu LTS releases come out every two years and offer three years of support on the desktop and five years on the server, while regular Ubuntu releases only come with support for 18 months.

"Canonical executives see the LTS as being a key milestone for Ubuntu support by ISVs and OEMs.

""What's really exciting is the ecosystem support that we've seen around this release," Canonical CEO Jane Silber said on a conference call announcing the release. "With over 80 vendors announcing support for about 100 applications, that's significant and a recognition of the long term support nature of this particular release."
