| However, all this took some tweaking to accomplish, but 
| being so user-friendly, Ubuntu makes it easy. If I have 
| a question about how to install a new app, or a plug-in 
| -- which I always do -- help is only a few keystrokes 
| away. Also, I am easily able to update at any time.

,----[ Quote ]

| only sessions focused on Canonical and Ubuntu. Here are 
| nine Ubuntu-oriented highlights from the event.


Finally, FBOs on intel

,----[ Quote ]
| Big, big, big thumbs up to the Xorg/Mesa-developer crowd 
| and the hackers behind the intel-driver for OpenGL 2.x 
| support (especially FBOs and GLSL)! Also big props need 
| to go to Bryce Harrington and Alberto Milone for 
| integrating this and pulling in all the needed bits and 
| bytes into Ubuntu! Itâs one thing to see stuff landing 
| on f.d.o git, but only when it reaches âmere mortalsâ in 
| the form of repository-updates itâs truly there (read: 
| where the end-user âsees and feelsâ it).

,----[ Quote ]
| As part of the initiative, Russian schools have already received CDs with
| Linux and other open-source tools distribution kits so that such solutions
| could be installed even in the schools with no broadband internet access. But
| of course such a large-scale deployment is not that easy to carry out without
| help of qualified professionals who can make it possible.
