    And next up... Lucid Lynx!

    Off topic but read this at Distrowatch and couldn't resist:

    Ubuntu 10.04

    The infrastructure around the recently announced Ubuntu 10.04, code name "Lucid Lynx" and scheduled for release in April 2010, is being set up at a rapid pace. The first alpha release of the new LTS (long-term support) Ubuntu is now just two months away, scheduled for 3 December 2009. But the entire development cycle has been altered; instead of six alpha releases, one beta and one release candidate (as is the case with Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala"), the new version will have only three alphas, two betas and one quick release candidate - a total of six (rather than eight) development releases. The final build of Ubuntu 10.04 is scheduled for 29 April 2010. For further details please see the Lucid Release Schedule page on Ubuntu Wiki.

    Since he is a week late, I'll hijack the thread...

    Who will continue to test the upcoming LL release?

    I want to continue to follow the development release of LL and then stay at LTS till the next LTS. I had a fun ride with Karmic development, and want to continue that. But when the LTS comes out I want to stay at that version for a couple of years again.

    I think I am going to skip on testing this one out, as classes have started back up and I really need both my notebook and desktop to be stable for me to work on projects and such. But that doesn't mean I won't be giving each milestone a quick look with the LiveCD when they are released!
    Yeah I know pirated copy of XP is free, but so is Ubuntu and it's LEGAL!

    I start at toolchain upload with every alpha & Lynx will be no exception--I'll stay with it for the 6 months & then move to the "M" release...............

    Since 'Badger' I have jumped in just as soon as I can edit my sources list. It's gotten much easier to run through from the 'beginning' of each release. Got an old partition ready for LL

    Rude indeed.Who cares if he is a week late.Iam reading this here first.If there is already a thread for this, iam sure the mods can merge it on request.

    The release cycle sounds interesting.Maybe having only 3 alphas will cut down the major breakages to 3 times.
