Well, it's a good program.
Few things, as i've done an official conference about UBS at Paris
- Many people ask for a viewable boot ! Many beleive that there was a
bug during the boot !
- Many people ask about software distribution, for many, UBS is too
music edition designed, and not enough image/Video edition completed.
is there a plan to complete Lucid UBS LTS, or only improving the next
UBS release ?
For producing multimedia, powerfull, stable and complete release is
absolutly necessary, so lucid need large complete under UBS release.
Thanks for the lead,
