Linux by Knight Post 031 Ubuntu 10.04 Lives! Go Back To The Future With Lucid Lynx

We don't hear a lot about Linux lately because its going under an assumed name:  IOS (is mostly BeOS/Linux)  and Android (is mostly Linux) and has been running SmartPhones.

How do you think the "hackers" learned to hack it so quickly?

It was a pretty well known system folks.

A Hackers are still doing pretty good work out there.

But sometimes even Linux jumps ahead of itself, and takes a side-road down a wrong path. 

Like Ubuntu lately.

Does Oneiric have you down?  Is your hardware not up to snuff?  Well, what are you going to do about it?  Ubuntu 10.04 is almost 2 years old now, but you can teach it the electric slide even if all it know how to do is the funky chicken.  Here is a short and simple guide for bringing 
Ubuntu 10.04 into 2012.

Fast-forward to 2011 with Backports

First things first.  Enable backports.

Go to ‘System==>Administration==>Software Sources’, 
click on the ‘Updates’ tab and click ‘Unsupported Updates (Lucid Backports)’.


Ubuntu is still Cool, but The Mint is 
coming on strong...

Linux Mint 12 snapshot.

The Mint project released the final Linux Mint 12 ("Lisa"), which offers "MGSE" extensions to GNOME 3.2 that let users create a more GNOME 2.3x-like environment. Based on Ubuntu 11.10 and Linux 3.0, Linux Mint 12 features upgrades to Firefox 7.0, LibreOffice 3.4.3 and Thunderbird 7.0.1.

Hey bud. Thanks for the trackback. I should point out that iOS has no Linux in it. It's based on BSD. Also, BeOS is dead and has nothing to do with Apple products.

Anyways, thanks for reading my article at!
