[News] Ubuntu GNU/Linux Chosen for Savings

Hash: SHA1

Laptops for less: How I saved big on a computer the Ubuntu way

,----[ Quote ]
| I live in Portland, Oregon, where open source is not just the favored 
| software methodology but a way of life. Yet despite my buddies sporting their 
| Linux user group laptop stickers, I was desperately afraid. It sounded hard. 
| It sounded geeky.   
| Then I needed a new laptop. I was going freelance and sending my corporate 
| laptop back to the mothership. The refurbished Dell Latitude I bought was 
| only $245 but came without an operating system. My geeky friends suggested 
| Ubuntu -- the free operating system Linux users consider a beginner's option. 
| I'd save a few hundred dollars on Microsoft Vista and the Office suite; and I 
| didn't have the extra money so it was really my only option. That or spend a 
| lot of time at the public library.

| Ibex theme, are still hoping to see a completely refurbished Ubuntu look.

| The upcoming release of Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is highly anticipated not
| only for the system enhancements it will likely get, but also for its new
| default theme. The visual refresh is a long time coming, so I expect the
| Ubuntu artwork team is cooking something good for all of us.
| The October release date of Ubuntu 8.10 is fast approaching, yet until now,
| we don’t know exactly what the finished product will look like. I don’t want
| to make any guesses, instead, I decided to collect 10 beautiful existing GTK
| 2.x themes that I think can be further improved or altered and be used as the
| default desktop theme for Intrepid Ibex. Enjoy!
