Ubuntu 10.04 LTS released

The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Long-Term Support).
This release incorporates the Desktop Edition and the Server Edition. The
Server Edition can be used on physical servers, on Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud
(UEC), and on Amazon’s EC2 public cloud. Codenamed “Lucid Lynx”, 10.04 LTS
continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest
open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux
distribution.

We are also pleased to announce Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition, which is not a
long-term support release.
