"The forthcoming version of Ubuntu Linux, Lucid Lynx,
has just gone beta, and it's going to be the most important Ubuntu
release in years. I say that not just because it brings numerous
important changes to this most popular of Linux distributions, but
because Ubuntu 10.04 is the next LTS (Long Term Support) edition
and, as such, is going to be supported for paying desktop customers
for three years and for corporate server users for five years. In
other words, this is the edition that's going to make or break
Ubuntu's parent company Canonical's business future.
"What will this future look like? Based on my quick look at the
beta, the main thrust of this redesign is to make it as friendly as
possible to people who aren't already Linux desktop users."
