Ubuntu 10.04 available

Only 4 days after the release of the new Ubuntu version 10.04  (codename: Lucid Lynx) we have updated our systems to install the new version on our servers. The new version is an LTS-version (Long-Time-Support). This means, that Ubuntu will extend the support time and provide updates for a longer time.

Many interesting changes have been included since the last LTS-release. Some of them are:
- upgrade to Linux Kernel 2.6.32
- ext4 as default filesystem
- grub2 as bootloader

You can find more information about the changes in the official release notes.

Once of the most surprising features is, that Ubuntu 10.04 is booting up very fast. I've measured the time with my cell phone and a Dedicated Server Core i7. The stopwatch was started after the BIOS POST was finished and I was surprised ... It takes less than 15 seconds until the boot up process was completed.

We have tested the upgrade by running "apt-get dist-upgrade". Although, we can not recommend upgrading your system this way, because the test system became very slow after the upgrade. After a new installation with the latest version the same system was faster then ever before. Thus, if you want to upgrade your installation you should reinstall your server. Customers, using our ASI system can use it for the reinstallation. All other customers can request a reinstallation at our support. For new customers, be informed that we will add version 10.04 of Ubuntu to our server-configurator, the next days. If you can't wait, just leave a note at the suggestions field below the customer's personal information.
