[News] Ubuntu Installations Start Early, 8.10 Out Tomorrow

Hash: SHA1

Day 2 of Me and Ubuntu.

,----[ Quote ]
| I see it has been long since I wrote a new post. There are two reasons for 
| this. One being my XP installation getting affected by viruses and me 
| deleting a system file assuming it was a virus. Then I saw what Su has done 
| with his PC on Ubuntu and wanted to do the same with mine. Here begins the 
| quest towards making my PC work better than it has ever worked up until now. 
| This post is going to be pretty long. That is because I am describing the 
| journey of an annoyed-to-the-core Windows user to the land of 
| (virtually)unlimited freedom - Ubuntu.       


Ubuntu Server Or Desktop? Some Tips For Making The Right Pick

,----[ Quote ]
| At this point, you might be asking a very common question: What, exactly, are 
| the differences between the Ubuntu Linux server and desktop releases? 
| The most obvious difference involves what you find on a "server" 
| versus "desktop" version of the Ubuntu installation CD (or downloaded ISO 
| image). The server version includes a long list of server software, 
| development languages and related tools, networking apps, virtualization 
| software, and other commonly-used apps that you won't find on the desktop 
| distro.     



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!


My Intrepid Desktop

| As an added bonus, it’s my understanding that new kernel now supports some
| broadcom wifi cards out of the box. I have not yet installed on anything
| using broadcom, but I did install the proposed kernel in hardy on another
| system with broadcom and all seems well there. I look forward to trying
| Intrepid on a macbook. I believe that could be a marriage of great hardware
| and design with a great OS.


Review : Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex"

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall Ubuntu 8.10 is a well polished desktop Linux distribution , though
| not radically different from earlier version 8.04 of Ubuntu. Features like
| Tabbed Browsing in Nautilus , Encrypted Folders , better Hardware
| support ,being faster etc are reason compelling enough to Upgrade to the
| latest offering from Ubuntu team.


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)
