| I thought I would just say WOW!
| There are little touches in Karmic that just make me think why wasn't 
| this in before. This has actual got to the point now where I am 
| seriuosly thinking of upgrading my main box.
| [...]
| With Firefox3.5.2 currently in Karmic I have to admit I'm impressed. 
| It's by and far the fastest Firefox release so congratulations to them. 
| But how about something a little lighter for your netbook, well the 
| latest epiphany now has a webkit gtk backend this is easily as firefox 
| but with one big avantage (in my opinion) on ssd drives it uses less 
| disk swaping so it sits there happily producing pages without many 
| hitches.

| Pre-releases like this are not recommended for anyone who needs a stable
| system or who isn't comfortable with "occasional, even frequent breakage",
| and should not be used on production systems. Ubuntu 9.10 is scheduled to be
| released on October 29th, 2009.

Ubuntu 9.10 Gets A New Splash Screen, Not Plymouth

,----[ Quote ]
| Introduced last year with Fedora 10 was Plymouth, a project to replace the
| aging Red Hat Graphical Boot (RHGB) software. From the start, Plymouth
| leveraged kernel mode-setting to provide a flicker-free boot process and a
| splash screen that would run at the panel's native resolution. Beyond using
| KMS, Red Hat designed a nice plug-in architecture for Plymouth to offer
| different functionality and make it easy to add in new artwork.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
