A Very Lucid Release Party

From Ubuntu

On Saturday, we got together with some of our friends from KWLUG to hold a release party for Ubuntu 10.04: The Lucid Lynx.

It was great! We had pizza and cake and deviled eggs and free software. Photos after the jump.

The cake! Made by a friend of mine. (She also made the lynx for the CDs).

    I’m still trying to figure out why Ubuntu had such a dramatic change. Did Microsoft sue them? ’cause the close, minimize, etc… buttons are all in the wrong (different) place. Any idea why my computer had more problems booting since the change? 64 bit (at least last I looked) updated Ubuntu.

    Hi Chris. Do I know you?

    Ubuntu’s main goal these days seems to be to iterate quickly on usability issues. They’ve hired designers and user experience people and Mark Shuttleworth is stepping in personally to work on this stuff. We’re starting to see the results of that.

    Drastic usability changes are going to be the hallmark of Ubuntu releases for a while yet. I understand the frustration and I’m not saying every change is great. Fortunately, this is free software. I’m sure there will be derivative distributions (eg. Linux Mint) which turn their back on a lot of these changes.

    As for your boot problems, I’d suggest talking to the friendly people on Ubuntu forums
