| In a few days, you will see a new version of the popular Linux distribution, 
| Ubuntu. Ubuntu version 9.04, or fondly called by developers as “Jaunty 
| Jackalope,” is already in beta release and will soon see it bumped 
| to “release candidate” status, before we get the full version before the end

Memo to Canonical: Follow Red Hat’s Partner Lead

,----[ Quote ]
| So, where’s Canonical? Admittedly, the company has its hands full developing 
| Ubuntu 9.04, Ubuntu 9.10 and Landscape updates. But stay patient. Based on 
| some educated guesses, I think Canonical will show more channel progress by 
| mid-2009. In the meantime, Canonical should take a close look at Red Hat and 
| the Open Source Channel Alliance to see how go-to-market partner strategies 
| are evolving.     



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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.


French Lawmakers Hope to Inspire Linux Revolution

,----[ Quote ]
| If the French National Assembly gets its way, the open-source Linux operating
| system will take over the governments of Europe, seizing on a weak economy to
| displace Windows.
| About 18 months ago, the Assembly shifted from running Windows on the 1,100
| computers of its members and their assistants to running a version of Linux
| called Ubuntu. (I profiled the rise of Ubuntu in a recent article.) According
| to Rudy Salles, vice president of the assembly, the decision to abandon
| Microsoft’s Windows software was both an economic and political gesture.
| The French Parliament should save about 500,000 euros over the next five
| years, thanks to the low price of Ubuntu –- free –- and have lower management
| costs. Linux tends to have fewer security issues than Windows, for example.
