Ubuntu Lucid upgrade report

Friday I upgraded my workstation to Ubuntu‘s 10.04 release, Lucid Lynx.

First, it wouldn’t boot at all: it would hang while mounting USB filesystems.

Then I had to take extra steps to get VMWare server 2.0.2 to run.

Then my Konsole rendered colored and bold fonts incorrectly, which I’m working around by always using bold fonts.

But, overall, it works. It’s polished — for a Linux distribution. If my Mac could drive the 30″ monitor, though, I’d be using that as my primary workstation.
