Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope" Alpha 4 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Not only did Fedora 11 Alpha make it out the door today, but so did the 
| fourth alpha release for Ubuntu 9.04 (the Jaunty Jackalope). Ubuntu 9.04 
| Alpha 4 continues to build upon a bleeding-edge set of Linux packages (though 
| still tracking the Linux 2.6.28 kernel) and has installation support for the 
| EXT4 file-system and new notification capabilities.     


Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 4 Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| The fourth alpha version of the upcoming Ubuntu 9.04 (codename Jaunty 
| Jackalope) was uploaded a few minutes ago on the official mirrors. As usual, 
| we've downloaded a copy of it in order to keep you up to date with the latest 
| changes in the Ubuntu 9.04 development.   
| What's new in Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 4? Well, the big news is that Nvidia and AMD 
| have finally released some new and improved video drivers for Linux systems, 
| in order to keep up with the latest technologies. Therefore, starting with 
| this alpha, the Nvidia proprietary video driver has been added and it 
| supports the latest X.Org server, version 1.6 (see screenshots three and four 
| on the first row). ATI users will have to wait a little bit longer, as the 
| fglrx proprietary video driver is not yet supported (it will be fixed until 
| the Beta release arrives).

Feeling the heat at Microsoft

| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.
