I'm thinking of installing the latest version/flavour of Ubuntu 10.04 to the hard-drive. But i don't want the 'beta' version. Does anyone know when the official version 'Lts' will be released please. Thanks

You can get a free live CD of Ubuntu 10.4.
As of today you can preorder.
It takes about a 3 week delivery time stateside.

It's available now 29 April but I'd wait 'til everyone has downloaded ... if you see what I mean? Download speeds slow 'cos everyone wants a copy. I've been using it since Beta and have regularly run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, so I think I have the final LTS version. Might download a final version in a few days as a backup.o
On my laptop it's booting in 40 seconds from grub to wireless connected!! That's fast and what I'm looking for in OS for laptop.

I agree with Blackspyder, however I am a CD freak and am waiting for my new copy to come in the mail. I can't wait til I load the new disk into my new computer. I has been a long wait since the Beta so I hope everyone gets a clean error free copy and hope that the servers don't crash from the demand.

Peace out,

I'm running the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu 10.04. Very impressed - plymouth works now (log on screen etc). From selecting Ubuntu at boot 'til on line (wireless) approx 45 seconds max including typing username & p/w. Boot time matters on laptop but less on desktop I guess.
Operationally moves fast - no figures but compared to Vista I can see a real difference.

Switching from Netbook to Gnome at logon works well in both directions.
Wireless connection simple to set up. Mobile broadband worked 'out of the box' on first time use.

Hope others also enjoying the newest Ubuntu?

Richard
