performance review of ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx

hello friends,
Ubuntu launched its Final release of lucid lynx 10.04 just 2 days before and I couldn't stop trying it as soon as I could.Reason is not that I was waiting eagerly for its final release.Real reason is that I had done some mistake in hard disk partition while installing slackware which caused me loss of linuxmint which I was using for a very long time.So, finally I thought to try fresh and final release of 10.04.
oh boy,What an OS.Surprisingly it can be called as the perfect OS.Lookwise,it has got better.Also,the most exciting feature is its boot time.Amazing boot time must have impressed everyone.Shutdown time is also faster.This has got attention of some people who are claiming that skipping disk check can also reduce boot time.Anyway,I don't want to create any controversy here.
Talking about look,It gives a sight of mac.The minimize, maximize and close buttons of window is on the left side which gives you feeling of working on mac.Anyway that feature was available previously also but not as default(a package "mac4lin" changes the look in that manner).New Gwibber social client is also very exciting.Gwibber can be configured to broadcast status on facebook,twitter etc. and to see other's status.
Recently "ubuntu tweak" became my latest crush as It has got nice and sexy packages which synaptic package manager didn't let me try directly.visit for more info about tweak.As I am in a university which does not provide with a superfast internet connection but allows downloading packages with apt-cacher,I couldn't stop downloading all the packages which caught my attention.Well,It's definitely wastage of resource.
In final words,ubuntu 10.04 is just lovable and awesome and great experience so far.Don't know how soon the bugs will come out.Till then,enjoy lucid lynx.Happy open source.
