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.

Mesa's Android Support Is Currently In Bad Shape

While Mesa is talked about as being able to be built for Google's Android operating system to run these open-source graphics drivers on Android devices with OpenGL ES support, in reality there's a lot left to be desired. Over the years there's been a handful of developers working on Android Mesa support to let the popular open-source graphics drivers run over there -- from the Intel driver now that they're using HD Graphics within their low-power SoCs (rather than PowerVR), AMD has made a few steps toward Android netbook/laptop devices with Radeon graphics, and we're starting to see Gallium3D drivers for Qualcomm Adreno (Freedreno) and the Raspberry Pi (VC4) where there's interest from Android users. This year as part of Google Summer of Code we also might see a student focused on Freedreno Android support. Read more
