What’s Coming In Ubuntu 10.04

Filed under
Ubuntu

Now that Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) is out and stable I thought I would look into what is on the horizon for the next release of Ubuntu. There are a lot of questions that I have about the next release and I have found some solid answers, rumors and a lot of speculation as to what the next release will have.

Ubuntu has committed to have a regular release schedule. I came across a lot of mixed feelings about this idea/concept. Some people feel that this regular release gets in the way of how users see the distribution. Some users like to be on the edge of technology and what the developers have made for the release. Once people get used to that release it is about time for another release that uses new ideas and concepts.

On the other hand, Ubuntu wants to offer what they call a Long Term Support version (LTS). An LTS is released every two years. This is so that instead of jumping on every release, you can upgrade only when an LTS release comes out. Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx release will be the third LTS release just two years, as promised.

I made my own wearable computer with a Raspberry Pi, and it was almost too easy

Ever since I read about the crazy wearable pioneers back in the ‘90s and early 2000s, I've wanted a wearable computer of my own. I had two major requirements, however: it had to be a computer, and I had to be able to wear it. Smartphones, for the most part, have supplanted most people's interest in or need for a wearable computer. They're great, I highly endorse smartphones. But you can't really "wear" them in any functional way. Read more
