Ubuntu 9.10's New Wallpapers and More

,----[ Quote ]
| In April this year, Canonical introduced two new 
| wallpapers and three new themes, along with a revamped 
| boot splash theme and a brand-new login screen, for 
| their Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) release. On 
| October 1st, they will unveil Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic 
| Koala) Beta and I bet everybody is wondering if 
| Canonical will actually change the user interface 
| (read: skin it) with a breathtaking one. The truth is 
| that we have no idea if they will come with that 
| professional-looking theme everyone was expecting since 
| Jaunty, or they will just offer enough possibilities 
| for users to create their own personalized desktops.


Thoughts on Ubuntu One

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve spent the last few weeks testing Ubuntu One, 
| Canonicalâs file-storing and sharing service.  Below is 
| an outline of my experience, and thoughts on the future 
| of the application.
| Ubuntu One, which will be installed by default in 
| Ubuntu 9.10, allows users to sync files between 
| different Ubuntu computers.  The service runs in the 
| background, and can be accessed either through a Web 
| interface in Firefox or via the Nautilus file browser, 
| with which it seamlessly integrates.

| Hopefully you will never see this improvement, but it's 
| now going to be there for when those bugs do creep in.

| Running under the theme "ICTs and Innovations â 
| Strategic Opportunities and Challenges," the exhibition 
| is set to end today.
| The Ubuntu stand proved popular with its Freedom 
| Toaster which visitors were using to download software 
| free of charge.
| Ubuntu, the organisation, derives its name from a 
| community developed Linux based operating system that 
| is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers named 
| Ubuntu.
| Whether one uses it at home, at school or at work 
| Ubuntu contains all the applications one will ever 
| need, from word processing and email applications, to 
| web server software and programming tools.

| While I am still pondering a good topic for my next CS oriented post, I
| thought I would finally take the time to promote and show off some of the
| changes I have been making to the Kubuntu installer, Ubiquity.
