Ubuntu 8.10 - Comprehensive Review of 10 Main Features

,----[ Quote ]
| As we wrap up this segment, what is the bottom line? The bottom line is to 
| wait for a very feature-rich and sophisticated network enabled operating 
| system, Ubuntu release - Intrepid Ibex. Ubuntu 8.10 has every potential to 
| become the most user-friendly open source operating systems till date, giving 
| the unpopular Microsoft Windows Vista a run for its money.    


The Philosophy and Features of Ubuntu 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| The Intrepid Ibex release on the 30th offers many new features for a 
| community that is clearly growing. Carr says an estimated 650,000 users are 
| on the Ubuntu support/community forums, and there are 170 LoCo (Local 
| Community) groups. With the addition of the USB image creation tool, guest 
| accounts, and quick and easy 3G connectivity configuration, it seems this 
| number is only set to increase.      


Features I’d Like to See in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)

,----[ Quote ]
| There is no doubt that Compiz Fusion is extremely popular nowadays. Is the 
| Settings Manager really that big of a package that they cannot include it in 
| the default install? I think many users would enjoy being able to tweak 
| Compiz instead of having only the basic functions. I don’t get the “you’re 
| just here for the eye-candy” argument due to the fact that compiz is being 
| shipped in the default install. Why not go all the way then?     



23,000 Linux PCs forge education revolution in Philippines

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing
| them for a technology-literate future, but in the Philippines many schools
| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.
