While a few hours ago it looked uncertain whether Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (a.k.a. the "Lucid Lynx") would actually be released today due to a serious bug that caused the ISOs to be re-spun, Canonical managed to pull through and now the Lucid Lynx is officially out in the wild.

Alongside the release of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS are updates to Ubuntu Server, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu Netbook Remix, and the rest of the Ubuntu family. Ubuntu 10.04 is a Long-Term Support (LTS) release and carries quite a few changes since the release of Ubuntu 9.10 in October.

Among our favorite changes found in Ubuntu 10.04 is the use of Nouveau kernel mode-setting, the upgrades to the GNOME 2.30 desktop, and the new theme. You can share with us and others what your favorite features (or shortcomings) of Ubuntu 10.04 is within this thread.

Download links for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS & Co can be found within the mailing list announcement.
