What should become of Edubuntu?

,----[ Quote ]
| Some people suggested that it’s better to contribute to the upstream 
| educational projects rather than Edubuntu directly. I think fixing upstream 
| bugs and adding features is awesome, but having a pre-packaged solution for 
| teachers is equally cool and just as important.   


Quick look at Ubuntu 9.04

,----[ Quote ]
| This release of Ubuntu is no huge advance over the previous version, but the 
| previous version was no huge leap over the version before. With Ubuntu, there 
| is a steady improvement in usability, compatibility and features, and this is 
| a safe and stable release, if a little uninspiring, however, turning Compiz 
| on spices things up a little.    


Ubuntu 9.04: Wow

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, it’s time you wow the general public. Right? You have what could easily 
| stand as the most significant and improved release of any Linux distribution 
| available. It’s time to make the fat lady over at Microsoft sing. Before the 
| official release of Windows 7 is out and over shadows you with glitz, 
| glamour, and shiny shrink-wrapped packaging you must do something with 
| yourself. Put on a beautiful prom dress and show the crowd you really deserve 
| to be prom queen. If you don’t, this brilliant release will not see the 
| wide-spread installation it should.       


Linux Distro Review : Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit with ext4.

,----[ Quote ]
| The one thing that amazed me was the speed, I am not talking just about the 
| very much improved boot speed but about the speed the programs begun to 
| start.  
| Firefox with 10 tabs reopened (after addons installation) in just a few 
| seconds ! all tabs where open like I never closed it - I have never seen this 
| before !  


Five Minutes of Ubuntu 9.04

,----[ Quote ]
| Performance is excellent.
| Plain, functional desktop with not a sign of visual effects (Compiz and 
| such).  


Reflections on ten releases of Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Such rapid growth has brought about great challenges in all of these areas, 
| and provided plenty of opportunity for personal development.  I’ve had the 
| opportunity to work with the most talented and dedicated team of my career, a 
| team which spans corporate, national and social boundaries.  Together, we’ve 
| broken new ground in realizing the potential of free software.    



Jaunty Jackelop: best Ubuntu yet

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I think this is the best version of Ubuntu we’ve seen yet.


Ubuntu 9.04: Installs and upgrades reportedly great so far

,----[ Quote ]
| Some early reports are coming in that the Ubuntu 9.04 official release is
| proving to be a great success.


Ubuntu 9.04 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| One standard, but remarkable (because it outdoes Vista) feature of Ubuntu is
| the Compiz Fusion 3D desktop, which has enables some really cool effects. Of
| course, for this feature to function you need a 3D accelerated graphics card.


A Kid’s review of Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| She said she liked the sounds that accompany when she plays games that are
| not there in Windows. Moreover, she liked the penguins pretty much, which is
| of course a common feature of Linux distros. :)


Ubuntu 9.04 Review - Desktop Emphasis on the Jaunty Jackalope

,----[ Quote ]
| First, my only complaint with this release is that it gave me very little to
| write about. Very few earthbreaking features, but rock solid stability.
| But. The But. This is the Distro. The Distro that has finally won me over
| from the SUSE camp. The swaying points were the theme, stability and speed.
| To put it in better words, this distro takes over from openSUSE as my primary
| distro. At least, until SUSE 11.2.

| I was originally an Apple-centric developer back in the days who then shifted
| to writing software for Microsoft OSes just because that’s “where the money
| was” and where businesses were nailed into.  Apple has since replaced their
| original OS for BSD Linux.  The Linux OS itself has matured and flourished
| since my original exposure to Slackware, RedHat and SUSE Linux.


Kudos to Ubuntu for a great upgrade experience!

,----[ Quote ]
| So kudos to the Ubuntu developers (and all other Linux developers I guess for
| a great underlying architecture).


Ubuntu 9.04 as slick as Windows 7, Mac OS X

,----[ Quote ]
| Looking back to the genesis of Ubuntu 9.04 six months ago, I suspect that its
| subtle but powerful changes are due to the new user interface team that
| Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth said at the time he would put in place. If
| so, that team has already earned its paychecks and even more, and we're
| looking forward to seeing what another six months of development will
| produce.
| In the meantime, kudos to Ubuntu 9.04: you got game.


Jaunty Jackalope hops onto scene with GNOME 2.26, new features

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu is beginning to make considerable progress in the server space. The
| 9.04 release brings a few noteworthy improvements to the Ubuntu server
| edition that could help to further accelerate Ubuntu's growth on servers. It
| offers a first look at the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud stack, which leverages the
| Eucalyptus project to to provide software infrastructure that will enable
| companies to build their own self-hosted computing clouds. Ubuntu 9.04 server
| edition is also officially supported on Amazon's EC2 service.

Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope - Review

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to Ubuntu, usually, I skip spring releases and focus on autumn
| editions, as I've found them to be more cultivated and more responsive to my
| needs. This time, I decided to break tradition and give the latest Ubuntu
| release beta a whirl.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
