[News] DistroWatch Looks at Versions of *buntu Linux

Hash: SHA1

An overview to Ubuntu editions

,----[ Quote ]
| The big Ubuntu release week has come and gone. While many download servers 
| suffered from heavy access rate, the release event proved fairly orderly with 
| no nasty surprises. This was the first time DistroWatch made five Ubuntu 
| release announcements in one day, providing all the relevant links to the 
| latest versions of Ubuntu, as well as Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu Studio and 
| Mythbuntu. Although the latter four are effectively nothing more than 
| specialist editions of Ubuntu, they had all started up as independent 
| community projects and only became official Ubuntu subprojects at a later 
| stage. Besides, some of these editions are highly interesting products which 
| some users might even find preferable over the main Ubuntu edition. Let's 
| take a brief look at what exactly Ubuntu delivered last week.          


And people actually pay for this stuff?

When it comes to software, which is duplicable, more expensive does not
necessarily mean better.


Gameloft Moves 1,000 Desktops to Ubuntu Linux

| “It’s been a pretty big deployment, well over 1000 desktops and it’s been a
| huge success,” crows the source. “Ubuntu does the same job [as Windows] for
| zero cash. The most painful thing about the change over was moving to
| Thunderbird from Outlook. No one has batted an eyelid about moving to Gnome.”

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
