Lucid Lynx Artwork

Not much buzz on the linux forums so i thought id post this thread and see if it creates any buzz for all that love linux.
With the Beta release of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS knocking on our doors, we decided to give you a glimpse at the new themes, boot splash, login screen, boot prompt and logos of the upcoming operating system, officially announced by Canonical last week. On April 29th, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) will be the 12th release of this marvelous operating system created by Canonical
Full details including the artwork here....http://news.softpedia.com/news/The-New-Artwork-of-Ubuntu-10-04-LTS-137213.shtml

Re: Lucid Lynx Artwork

Well. it certainly looks different in that purplish colour rather than the usual brown, although it is unmistakeably Ubuntu.
I quite like the look of it and am looking forward to upgrading as LL is LTS. Will be able to stick with it and not have the hassle of
upgrading every 6 months. Going to wait for official release though.

Re: Lucid Lynx Artwork

The colours don't bother me.
I always change the background to one of the more outstanding pictures of the day from Wikipedia. Smiley
However, I am not pleased to see f-spot - I seem to have problems making it work; plus will I will need to install Gimp, if it's a fresh install.
Will 10.04 (upgrade version) run with GRUB mk I?

The purplish wallpaper reminds me of MacOS X as does the move to the left-hand side of the title-bar of the minimise, maximise, & close buttons.

Every Ubuntu release is supported for 18 months (minimum); just because they release every 6 months doesn't mean you must upgrade every 6 months.

It should but if you are using ext4 then you are better off with mk 2 (or 1.97 as it is)
I have 2 machines with mk 2 on and no problems with them, just a bit harder to modify the menu now.

Re: Lucid Lynx Artwork

Well the new default icons are a bit putrid in my view

Re: Lucid Lynx Artwork

Hadn't noticed that - very Mac-ish. Do you think this is appropriate now?:

I used to use that on a (2nd-hand) Mac PowerBook running Debian PPC; dropping it down a flight of stairs wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done  Embarrassed
