Ubuntu Requests Reviewers to Handle Flood of Brainstorm Ideas

,----[ Quote ]
| As KDE jumps boldly into the waters of its new brainstorming initiative, the 
| Ubuntu Brainstorm team battles a strong current of incoming ideas. 
| Ubuntu's Brainstorm project has witnessed a steady increase in idea 
| submissions since its inception, and given this upward trend and current 
| workload, the team has decided to call for reinforcements. The Brainstorm 
| team is seeking users familiar with Ubuntu's Brainstorm process to act as 
| Idea Reviewers.    


Just what is Jaunty Jackalope?

| The cutesy name for the next cloud-capable version of Ubuntu, which will 
| follow 9.04, is “Karmic Koala”. Do you see a naming pattern here? 
| London-based Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu project, does love 
| their unique animal references. Albeit fun, the serious side of the company 
| is their promise that the Linux distro, Ubuntu, will always be free to 
| download, free to use, and free to distribute to others.     



French Lawmakers Hope to Inspire Linux Revolution

| 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.


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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
