Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 Beta Announced

The Register has a great short article introducing you to the delights of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx first Beta announced today.  You can grab the Beta version here.

The release sees new rebranding which has gotten rid of Human Theme in favour of a more professional looking desktop in an attempt to make Linux desktops look less Linux-like.  The release also ventures into the world of online music with the imminent launch of Ubuntu’s U1 music store which ties up Rythmbox to MP3 purchases.

Try it out.

I gave it a go on VirtualBox and the video drivers from the guest additions kept stack tracing and given my current stable Karmic Koala setup I don’t particularly want to run this Beta just yet on real hardware.
