ActionDesignStudios writes: The upcoming release of Ubuntu, titled 'Lucid Lynx' has just entered the beta cycle. Along side the usual desktop and server versions, a special version has been released that is designed to run on Amazon's EC2 cloud service. This release of Ubuntu does away with the brown 'Human' Gnome theme we've all become accustomed to, replaced by a new version Canonical says is inspired by light. The new release also includes much better integration with social networking services such as Twitter, identi.ca and Facebook, among others.
