Ubuntu Open Week Encourages New Contributors to Get Involved

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu community manager Jono Bacon announced Wednesday the Ubuntu Open Week 
| schedule for the Jaunty release. Ubuntu Open Weeks are routinely held right
| after a release to welcome and encourage new contributors to get involved in 
| work on the next...


Linux Outlaws 61 - Bono Jacon, You've Got Mail!

,----[ Quote ]
| This week, we have some Linux news as usual and we also interview Jono Bacon 
| about his recent Severed Fifth album release, Ubuntu and also Free Software 
| and Free Culture in general.  



The Ubuntu Linux community gets its first (second?) rock star

,----[ Quote ]
| You would think that it's a hard enough job taking on Microsoft's desktop
| dominance. Ubuntu's community lead Jono Bacon, however, may actually have an
| even more audacious goal in mind: completely change the economics of the
| music industry.


More From the Open Source Music Garage

,----[ Quote ]
| The thing many people don't realize is that successful musicians get most of
| their money from live performances, not album sales. Since the Severed Fifth
| album will be offered for free, sales of the album are irrelevant, and
| commercial success isn't a stated goal of the project. If Severed Fifth can
| simply create an enthusiastic community around an album, live performances
| might attract audiences and grow the community larger, though. It will be
| interesting to watch this effort.


Best Music Player For Ubuntu - Exaile?

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the reasons why I love Linux are music players. On Windows you get WMP
| 11 which is a decent thing to play MP3's however there is no support for
| fetching album art, lyrics and other stuff. The other alternatives aren't so
| so good either, iTunes is a resource hog (1GB of RAM to play Maddona, you are
| kidding!).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
