Three years of Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| I started using Ubuntu three years ago this January. Recounting that fact, I 
| was actually a bit astonished. It doesn’t seem like its been so long. A lot 
| of life can go by in three years, and its interesting to note that Ubuntu has 
| been a faithful companion for what has now been a decent chunk of my living.   
| [...]
| To conclude this short jaunt, I’d simply like to say that I enjoy the changes 
| in 8.10. Ubuntu seems to always move in the right direction, and this 
| iteration was no different. For any Windows users, I highly recommend the 
| Ubuntu OS as an absolutely free alternative to Windows on your next computer 
| purchase.    


Upgraded to Ubuntu 8.10, thumbs up

| I've also just discovered Pidgin has tons of plugins including a Skype and 
| Facebook one. The skype one only works if skype is also running and the 
| facebook one does odd things to your contact list. For example if you have 
| requests to be a friend it will throw up a alert for each one for you to 
| accept or deny. This is painful when you  Its a nice idea but very buggy in 
| practice.     


Ubuntu 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| There’s a reason Ubuntu is the most known Linux distribution today: on 
| average it’s easiest, and it just works. I have to add “on average” here, 
| since the installation isn’t always painless. I also tried to install it on 
| another PC with an Intel video card, which failed. It’s a known issue, and 
| there are workarounds, but it’s annoying nonetheless. There are other 
| annoyances, like the infamous bug that closes the CD tray as soon as it’s 
| opened (push the button again, and it’ll stay open).      



Ubuntu 8.10 is here. And it rocks!

| I downloaded Ubuntu 8.10 "Interbid Ibex" today and i am currently using it as
| a Live-CD. Everything seems to be working perfectly until now, so i will
| install it tomorrow and suggest it to all my friends & colleagues if no
| serious problem arises.


1 day with Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex

,----[ Quote ]
| At the end of the day I can say that Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex is really rock
| solid and it’s absolutely easy to use also if you’re a newbie I’m going to
| suggest the upgrade to all my family’s PCs/notebooks.

Ubuntu 8.10: What’s New?

,----[ Quote ]
| Another six months, another Ubuntu release. This time around the table we
| have the Intrepid Ibex; 8.10. Not quite a ground-breaking release, but rather
| the framework for one. Why do I say that? Because there isn’t much new
| immediately visible to the user. Let’s take a look.


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.
