Ubuntu gets set to mark fifth birthday 

,----[ Quote ]
| The new kid on the GNU/Linux block is getting long in 
| the tooth. In about three weeks, Ubuntu will be five 
| years old.
| [...]
| Let me caution the Ubuntu fanboys as usual - this is 
| not a review.


Bazaar 2.0.0 Based on New Repository Format 

,----[ Quote ]
| The Bazaar version control system largely developed by 
| the Ubuntu company Canonical is available in version 
| 2.0.0 and has a new repository format. 


Buying Software in Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| For the sake of argument let us say that Adobe saw 
| the error of their ways and starting selling 
| proprietary Adobe Illustrator through the Ubuntu 
| Store. I would then like to see Inkscape get some 
| money every time it was sold. Why? because 
| channeling software products is a valuable service 
| and Canonical should not sell itâs values in 
| Freedom so lightly as to ignore the nature of the 
| products it channels.
| Anyway, this thought experiment is pure fantasy so 
| long as Ubuntu doesnât handle money in any way. 
| Once it does however, the questions must be asked 
| about weather we believe in Libre Software or 
| Gratis Software.



Remembering Red Hatâs sizzling IPO â with a toast from Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Happy 10th anniversary, Hatters. Can it really be that Red Hat went public 10
| years ago on Aug. 11, 1999? How time does fly â and how big an impact the
| Linux crew has had on the world ever since.
| And how is this for an unintended toast â words of respect from Microsoft in
| an SEC filing. Now that must have been sweet reading at Red Hatâs
| headquarters where there is no love lost between the folks in fedoras and the
| Borg of software.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
