[News] More Good Impressions with Ubuntu GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

My First Impression Of Ubuntu Jaunty

,----[ Quote ]
| I just couldn’t wait for the 24th of April and decided to upgrade Intrepid to 
| the present Alpha version of Jaunty yesterday. After downloading some 1300 
| mb’s and then taking up another hour to complete all the modifications, my 
| computer restarted.   


Evaluating Ubuntu Backup Solutions — the FOSS Way

,----[ Quote ]
| Within 20 minutes of starting my search I had a complete backup solution 
| installed and configured and all thanks to the power of having thousands of 
| packages available from the Ubuntu software repositories. I was able to 
| quickly and easily test out different solutions until I found one that worked 
| with me.    
| This is the FOSS way. I urge you to try it and find your own solutions that 
| work with you 



Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) - My Thoughts So Far

,----[ Quote ]
| 1 reboot later, past the (in my opinion) great new GDM theme and nice new
| splash screen, I’m logged in, installing my nvidia drivers (180.xx) as
| recommended by a little pop-up. After that install and reboot, I get compiz
| effects working great, as well as an extended desktop - awesome!


Ubuntu and me

,----[ Quote ]
| At the end of the day, I’m glad FreeNAS didn’t work out (I think if I had an
| older used computer it might have been better). Ubuntu will still offer me a
| stable fileserver, but it also lets me let it double as a webserver and I get
| to learn another operating system.
| Ubuntu. It’s not just a cool name.


Ubuntu Developers Aren't Scary

,----[ Quote ]
| Soon after that I became friends with Jordan and with Daniel Chen, who lives
| nearby. Daniel showed up to our LoCo's Gutsy and Hardy installfests, and at
| the Hardy one I convinced him to start mentoring me on how audio works.
| They're both nice guys, just know that mentioning brokenness in QA to Jordan
| or in audio to Daniel will very likely result in a long, drawn-out analysis
| of the situation. You've been warned.


Towards the freedom of the operating system: the French Gendarmerie goes for

,----[ Quote ]
| In 2001 the Gendarmerie Nationale, France's national police force, started
| introducing open source software. The main goals were to gain greater
| independence and flexibility than proprietary software could offer. The
| decision to migrate all new workstations to Ubuntu, taken in January 2008,
| was the most important step in this transition so far.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
