Ubuntu 10.04 – A fresh look

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, where LTS stands for “Long Term Support”, is scheduled to be released in a couple of months period. According to the official Release Schedule, the exact release date is April 29th, 2010.

Ubuntu 10.04 will be featuring a brand new look. The good-old “Human” theme is going to be replaced by the new “Light” theme. The “light” concept comes from the idea that software of good value is always light, in terms of consuming resources. Ubuntu is focused on providing an Operating System that doesn’t bloat the user with unnecessary proprietary software.

Here comes the exciting part, Ubuntu team has released the first screenshots of the “Light” theme.

Light theme:

The minimal boot screen:

The fonts on the above screenshots look superior than on previous releases.
The minimize/maximize/close window buttons are now moved on the left-hand side.
That reminds a bit of Apple’s Mac OS X. However on the Mac OS, the window buttons have a different order, close/minimize/maximize.

Ubuntu will also get a brand new logo:

Official and community sites will be updated as well, featuring the new logo and looks.

Looking forward for the 10.04 RTM release!

Are you afraid to mess around with the not yet fully supported Windows Vista, or just waiting Vista SP1 to try them out?
Don’t really want to spend a fortune on a Mac, to get a robust OS like Mac OS X?

Well, here is the best from the Open Source Linux world: Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn)!

I have downloaded it today, and tried it under Innotek’s Virtualbox (version 1.3.8).
