Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 6, the Acer and the Dell

,----[ Quote ]
| While waiting about today for some lunch, I wrote part of this post on the 
| AA1 in the text editor (since Bloggers interpretation of HTML is kinda sucky)  
| and it was really nice to have the AA1 up on Ubuntu 9.04 with the Netbook 
| desktop. Fast, full featured, and if the usage is slightly different, much 
| easier once used to it on the 1024x600 screen. Several people stopped by to 
| ask about the unit and see how it worked... although one of them was because 
| I have an Apple sticker on the lid. That would be nice: an Apple Netbook.  
| Everything I have read says that is not going to happen though. In the  
| meantime, this all works pretty well. Finally.     


Can Ubuntu's 'Jackalope' Build A Better Netbook?

| ARM processor support. In a post earlier this week, I mentioned that 
| Canonical would have a fairly easy time porting Ubuntu to the ARM hardware 
| architecture, due mostly to the fact that the Linux kernel already runs quite 
| nicely on ARM processors.   



Aussies! Grab a sub $200 Linux desktop - today only!

| Impulse-buy retailer Zazz.com.au has sold computers in the past, but today's
| deal is a special one to my heart. For less than $200 including freight you
| get a Dell Optiplex desktop computer with Ubuntu Linux loaded and guaranteed
| fully working. However, you only have today to go for it.

| Every so often I take a stab at Linux, to see exactly what I like and do not
| like about the OS. Many of its problems, for me, stem from its inability to
| run on my overloaded hardware, or the occasional driver that makes the OS
| impossible to use without hand-tweaking something or other. That said, I
| seriously like the Ubuntu 8.10 implementation and will now install it
| permanently on my latest machines. It's a winner.
