As we proudly announced at the beginning of this month, the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS operating system will be accompanied by a comprehensive manual.
The Ubuntu Manual will be designed for beginners in Linux/Ubuntu and it will contain essential how-tos, guides and basic information about Ubuntu and its components, and everything one needs to know after installing it. Today, we announce that the Ubuntu Manual creators need you to answer a few important questions that will help them make a better manual for everyone! The survey has 9 questions, and it will take only 5 minutes of your precious time. Take the Ubuntu Manual survey now
, and make sure you tell your friends about it! "It is now time to spread the Ubuntu Manual survey -- a quick, 9-question poll about features of the manual that people may want to see emphasized. [...] Any of you who can tweet, post, email, or otherwise spread this around -- thank you. I would prefer not current Ubuntu users to answer this survey, but in fact for this to reach Windows and Mac users who may have heard about Ubuntu before or maybe even tried to use it unsuccessfully. While obviously this is not a scientific poll, it may nonetheless carry some useful advice for our writers."

At the moment, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) is in an alpha state, with two releases out. The third alpha release is expected on February 25th.
Once again, we remind everyone that Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) will be a quality and stable release. Canonical plans to make Ubuntu 10.04 LTS a bug-free operating system, with lots of quality improvements to the user interface, installation & boot experience and support for the latest hardware components. Another important goal for the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) release will be to improve the startup speed to about or less than 10 seconds!
The Lucid Lynx will be the 12th release of the Ubuntu operating system, and the third LTS (Long Term Support) release, supported for 5 years on the server and 3 years on the desktop. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) will ship on April 29th, 2010.
