Tried out Lucid Lynx 10.04 and I’m impressed. A Huge improvement since the last couple of releases. My favorite Ubuntu release so far was Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS, however after checking out 10.04 it’s easily at No.1. This time around everything worked magically and it worked well even with my new Dell Inspiron 1564 laptop. Bluetooth, Webcam, ATI, grub2, etc.

Ubuntu 10.04

Download Ubuntu from: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

If you want to have a nice grub2 theme then install gimp. Open the image you want to have as your grub background and set the image canvas size according to your monitor’s resolution [e.g. for me it’s 1366×768]. Then save the image as .tga file in /boot/grub. Edit /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme and set the Wallpaper line to /boot/grub/image.tga and you may also want to change the highlight/background colors, then run:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Enjoy! ūüėÄ
