[News] On Ubuntu Versions for KDE, Privacy

Hash: SHA1

On Distributions, Kubuntu, and KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source operating system experience exists in pieces, scattered 
| across a world of projects and technologies. Distributions exist because they 
| attempt to create a unified experience from the bits and pieces of open 
| source functionality out in that world, while establishing themselves as a 
| vendor their users can trust. Users might try a few distributions to see 
| which one works for them and settle on one which provides the experience they 
| are looking for. Users build a relationship with their distribution from 
| which they can establish a trust in the packages the distribution ships and 
| the defaults they configure.        


Island System: Ubuntu Privacy Remix Seals off Users

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Privacy Remix (UPR), based on Ubuntu 8.04 (LTS), is a live, read-only 
| CD that seals off your private data from the outside world. It does this 
| using encryption and isolation methods.  



Preview: Ubuntu/Kubuntu 8.10 “Intrepid Ibex”

,----[ Quote ]
| As a whole, I think the Ubuntu and Kubuntu teams deserve a giant pat on the
| back.  While I was only looking at a beta here, I think I will be making the
| jump over the weekend to Kubuntu.  I am a longtime Ubuntu user and I still
| like Ubuntu a lot, but I think it’s time to give the latest KDE a shot!


Kubuntu 8.10 'Intrepid Ibex' Beta Screenshots Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| I took these screenshots using a Kubuntu Intrepid Beta installation after
| performing a full dist-upgrade, at 1280x1024, with the nVIDIA 173 driver
| installed. I left all the settings in applications default, but I had to make
| fonts smaller and resize windows (in Konqueror for example), because they
| didn't look very well as default. The default theme used is Oxygen.


Ubuntu 8.10 Release Candidate Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| The release candidate version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid
| Ibex), which is scheduled for launch in late October this year, arrived a few
| hours ago and, as usual, we intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest
| changes in the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared with the beta release, which
| brought Firefox 3.0.3, PAM authentication framework and a BBC plugin for
| Totem, this version comes with two brand new and useful tools: a System
| Cleaner and a USB Startup Disk Creator.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
