Hash: SHA1

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.    


Ubuntu 9.04 To Feature Fingerprint Scanning

,----[ Quote ]
| A fingerprint sensor is something new for me as I’ve never had a laptop or 
| anything for that matter that included such a cool feature.  It’s THE 
| nerdgasm-causing feature of this decade; you can just imagine Napoleon 
| Dynamites brother using one of these and pretending he’s Agent 007 while 
| doing it.    
| I have to wait a few more days for this thing to be delivered in the mail, so 
| in the meantime I wanted to see if Ubuntu Linux would support it.  To my 
| surprise, fingerprint recognition is a new feature that is slated to role out 
| with the new version of GNOME 2.25 included with Ubuntu 9.04, which is in 
| Beta right now and scheduled to be finalized and released on April 26.  So 
| right off the bat I’m going to be able to replace long complex administrative 
| passwords with just a swipe of my finger.  I can’t wait to try it out.      


5 feature of Ubuntu you would like

,----[ Quote ]
| 1. When you boot the system, it will give you many options to start. One of 
| them is starting the session in which you closed your system. Apart from 
| that, you also have the option to choose your language in which you want to 
| operate the system.   
| 2. Suppose you have a folder of music files. You don’t need to play every 
| file to know which one you would like. You can just hover your mouse pointer 
| over the file and it will start playing. When you move the pointer away, it 
| will stop playing. It does not do it with video files.   



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.
