A preview of Ubuntu 10.04

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) is only in the Alpha stage of testing at this moment. It doesn’t look extremely different from the current version of Ubuntu but there are a few noticeable differences.

The most notable differences to me are the games (or lack thereof) and a video editing software called PiTiVi. The games that come with Ubuntu 10.04 are AisleRiot Solitaire, gbrainy, Mahjongg, Mines, Quadrapassel, and Sudoku. It saddens me that Tetravex wasn’t included. However, if you do a search in the package manager for Tetravex you will find a package containing games from the official GNOME release including Tetravex.

The video editor known as PiTiVi looks similar to Windows Movie Maker in my opinion. I don’t have any videos so I can’t fully test it but it appears to be very easy to use for both beginners and experts to use.
