The first alpha version of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, which will be known as Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (long-term support) upon release, is now available for download. Want to get it immediately? See the Ubuntu Lucid Lynx alpha download links below.
- 32-bit Desktop Edition – x86 Desktop edition of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Alpha 1
- 64-bit Desktop Edition – AMD64 Desktop edition of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Alpha 1
- 32-bit Server Edition – x86 Server edition of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Alpha 1
- 64-bit Server Edition – AMD64 Server edition of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Alpha 1
If you wish, there are other versions of this alpha available for download. These include the Lucid Lynx alternate install CD for x86 and AMD64 architectures, the ARM platform installation disc and the BitTorrrent files for all Lucid Lynx alpha 1 disc images.
Although Canonical’s servers and the various mirrors have huge bandwidth limits and very little in the way of speed restrictions, I still recommend the use of the BitTorrent files for download of Ubuntu’s disc images as, due to the nature of BitTorrent’s peer-to-peer protocol, downloading Ubuntu via BitTorrent will relieve some strain on the download servers.
