Five Features We Want to See in Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| One of Linux's most touted advantages over Windows and Mac systems is 
| that, on distributed systems like Ubuntu, you can install thousands of 
| applications right from your system, without having to Google, 
| download, double-click, and Next, Next, Next through installation 
| screens. That advantage is lost if you put all your applications in a 
| big pile of searchable stuff labeled "Graphics" or "Sound & Video"âor, 
| even worse, ask users to copy-paste repository sources and installation 
| commands into text files and terminals. Those are great backup and 
| uber-geek solutions, but terribly off-putting to those just trying to 
| get a system up and working.


Lubuntu: Floats Like a Butterfly, Stings Like a Bee

| Some complain that there is simply too much choice in the free software 
| world and far too many Linux distributions. Well, now thereâs another 
| called Lubuntu. A derivative of Ubuntu with the LXDE desktop, itâs 
| super light and very fast. Finally, thereâs an Ubuntu perfectly suited 
| to those older, low end machines!


Test Drive of Spri Linux Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| The Spri Beta 2.11 version is based on Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) 
| and comes in a 340MB ISO file, quite close in filesize to the Lubuntu 
| beta that we wrote about last week. Nothing special kernel-wise, it's 
| the default 2.6.28-15 kernel that is in Ubuntu right now, and IceWM's 
| version is 1.2.37.



Lubuntu, Ubuntu with LXDE

,----[ Quote ]
| The just released test version of Lubuntu is a 340MB Live CD image and is
| based on the in-development upcoming version of Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala.
| The small size of the ISO image is not just down to the use of LXDE though;
| the distribution is also missing applications, such as office software.


First Test Images of LXDE Lubuntu Available

First Lubuntu Test ISOs Available

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday the LXDE community received an announcement on their blog, in 
| which developer Mario Behling told the world about the availability of the 
| first Lubuntu test images, based on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). The upcoming 
| operating system already proves to be a serious contender to Xubuntu, the 
| ISO weighing in at a meager 342 MB. The image is based on the work of David 
| Sugar, with added patches by the community.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
