Interview with Ubuntu Developer Jordan Mantha

| I’ve been working on Ubuntu since just before Breezy Badger was released 
| (around September of 2005). I got involved with Edubuntu later on around May

Artwork for Ubuntu Jaunty Already Impressive

| Just before Intrepid Ibex came out, I had a few things to say about the new
| artwork. In a last-minute switch, things improved a little, but I was still
| never impressed with Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex in the way that Fedora 10 or Ubuntu
| Hardy Heron impressed me. It seems we are barely even started into the new
| release cycle, yet I can already say there are some very promising choices.
| Below are a selection of my favorites: (A number are proposed specifically
| for the betas, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t be used.)


An early glimpse of Ubuntu 9.04

| The biggest change that I noted was the addition of an encrypted private area

Firefox 3.1, Linux 2.6.28 Enter Ubuntu 9.04

| The first alpha build for Ubuntu 9.04 was released a week ago and there
| wasn't too much to take note of in this inaugural development release for the
| Jaunty Jackalope. Many of the packages were the same as what can be found in
| Ubuntu 8.10, there was the same theme, and the exciting Ubuntu 9.04 features
| have yet to be implemented. However, since that release several new packages
| have been accepted into Jaunty that begin to show change.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
