Notifications, indicators and alerts

| Let’s talk about notifications! As Ryan Lortie mentioned, there was a lot of 
| discussion across the Ubuntu, Kubuntu, GNOME, KDE and Mozilla communities 
| represented at UDS about the proposals Canonical’s user experience design and 
| desktop experience engineering teams have made for Ubuntu 9.04.   


"Bill Gates looks at everything as something that should be his. He acts in any
way he can to make it his. It can be an idea, market share, or a contract.
There is not an ounce of conscientiousness or compassion in him. The notion of
fairness means nothing to him. The only thing he understands is leverage."

Horny for Ubuntu 8.10: first look at Intrepid Ibex

,----[ Quote ]
| The first alpha release of Ubuntu 8.10, codenamed Intrepid Ibex, was made
| available on Saturday. This preliminary Intrepid prerelease includes updated
| packages, a new version of the Linux kernel, and an experimental new visual
| style.


Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" Alpha 1

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the first things to notice about Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 1 is its new theme.
| Originally, Ubuntu 8.04 was supposed to introduce a (much-anticipated) new
| default theme for Ubuntu, but that was pushed back into Intrepid Ibex. The
| theme in Alpha 1 is much different from any previous version of Ubuntu (see
| The Visual History of Ubuntu). There is much browner and the current design
| is a complete overhaul with nearly everything being different aside from the
| background. However, we are only at Alpha 1 and there is still much more work
| left with fine-tuning this theme before it's settled in October.


Ubuntu Linux 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| With the release of Ubuntu Hardy Heron now behind us most eyes are turned to
| October when Intrepid Ibex, or Ubuntu Linux 8.10, will make its debut. While
| Hardy Heron was designed to be stable enough to be a long-term support
| release, Intrepid Ibex promises to be packed with more exciting features.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
