[News] Linux World Abuzz : DistroWatch Newsletter Out

Hash: SHA1

DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 299, 20 April 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| Welcome to this year's 16th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! It's the Ubuntu 
| release week (or Ubuntu "circus", as some prefer to call it), a major event 
| in the calendar of many open source software enthusiasts. What will the 
| distribution's 10th official release be like? And will the download servers 
| cope with the expected heavy demand? We'll have to wait until Thursday to 
| find out; in the meantime, read below for a quick tip on reverting to an 
| older kernel under Ubuntu and visit Canonical's ShipIt service to order your 
| free CDs. In the news section, Mandriva gains support for hardware database 
| known as Smolt, Easy Peasy ponders a few ideas concerning the distro's 
| default user interface, and Fedora's Ricky Zhou points out the importance of 
| innovation in Red Hat's community distribution. Finally, don't miss our 
| feature article which calls for an implementation of a centralised 
| bug-tracking database for all open source software projects.            


Good times for Linux. Microsoft can't strangle it anymore.


Linux s'il vous plaît: French Gendarmie say oui to Ubuntu

| The Gendarmie Nationale – France’s national police force – has been slowly
| introducing open source software to its 105,000+ policemen since 2005. In
| 2008 the decision was made to use only Ubuntu for all new workstations. A
| year on shows this has been a great success with happy users, a better
| network and cost savings of over seven million euro per year.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
