Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx is up and running

Well, I took the plunge today and have installed Ubuntu Linux 10.04 code named ‘Lucid Lynx’.

Overall, I’m pretty impressed with the new version of Ubuntu. I do how ever have a couple of gripes which are problably more just minor annoyances than anything. Thunderbird I dislike, time will tell wheather that will change. As it stands I think Thunderbird 3.0.4 looks horrible. I might have to look at Evolution again.

Flash video’s did not work after the upgrade from 9.04, I had to rip out the flash pkgs and re-install them. Minor thing really, but the re-install fixed the issue.

Gwibber doesn’t seem to appear on the system tray anymore. When I close the window it closes it and I need to go through the menus to re-load it. Maybe I’m missing something, also one of my Twitter accounts seems to have been misplaced.

Bilbo blogger has now changed it’s name to Blogilo, thats cool. I have no problem with a name change, but it didn’t migrate my blog accounts over. I had to add all my blog accounts to it. Again a minor thing which only took up a few minutes. But it would have been nice if it migrated the settings / blog accounts across.

Firefox lost it’s icon on the menu, Not that I use Firefox (Chrome is my browser of choice), I thought it rather odd that it lost the icon however. Editing the menu and putting it back fixed it 🙂

All in all, I think Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx at this stage is looking pretty impressive.
