Have you taken Lucid for a testdrive yet?
February 19, 2010
If you’re running Ubuntu 9.04, 9.10, or 10.04, it’s trivial to testdrive Lucid in a virtual machine, without modifying your current installation!
If you’re already running Lucid, congrads! All you need to do is add the testdrive ppa, and install testdrive, and either kvm or virtualbox-ose.
Just pop open a terminal and run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:testdrive/ppa && \
sudo apt-get update && \
sudo apt-get install testdrive
Then you can either run testdrive from the command line, or use the menu, Applications -> System Tools -> Testdrive.
Then, a menu will pop up, with a menu of Lucid daily images. If you have previously downloaded any of these, you should see a timestamp of the cached file. If you run testdrive everyday, your cache will stay up-to-date, and the incremental download will be much faster!
