There are so many people who love Ubuntu Linux and there are such people also who really don’t know anything about Linux at all. Here are the 10 best things which make Ubuntu 10.04 worth caring about.
1 – GNOME 2.30
This is the final GNOME release for 2.x before its major up gradation to 3. Of course 3 will be great also, and this will be last time when you will see your favorite 2.x GNOME in Ubuntu flavor. 2.30 GNOME is great as I experienced. As far as GNOME 3 is concerned I think that will succeed where KDE 4 failed in being a useful desktop upgrade right out of the starting gate.
2 – HAL begone!
Ubuntu 10.04 has done away with HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) during the boot process. This really boots up within 10 seconds and removal of HAL also drastically speeds up resume-from-suspend times for those of you in laptop land.
3 – Fully open source NVidia driver
Anyone using NVidia graphics card can now take a sigh of happiness because of open source NVidia drivers. As open source NVidia drivers works same as the proprietary drivers.
4 – Social networking integration
The Me Menu, which is built upon the Gwibber framework enables you to interact instantly with social networking sites. It also haves multi-column view so that you can monitor more than one social networks at a time.
