Making up Ubuntu Warty Warthog was the Linux 2.6.7 kernel, XFree86 4.3.0.1, and GNOME 2.8. This was Ubuntu's first official release and had come in October of 2004 (hence version 4.10). Ubuntu 4.10 was available on install CDs for Intel x86, PowerPC, and AMD64. A LiveCD was also available for Intel x86. From the start Ubuntu has provided LiveCD versions of its operating system. This in contrast to Fedora where they had only started shipping official LiveCDs last year with Fedora Core 6. Last year was also Gentoo's first time at mastering an easy to use LiveCD. In the area of Live media, Ubuntu has been among the leaders for desktop distributions.

For being Ubuntu's inaugural release, 4.10 Warty Warthog was operable and great for its time. The desktop theme was an ugly brown and the rest of the GNOME theme had continued in a variety of browns. Some of the release announcement features were a simple and fast installation, minimalist install mode for servers, and Firefox v0.9.
