REVIEW: Ubuntu 9.10 Beta Promises to Strengthen Distro's 
Position as Desktop Favorite

,----[ Quote ]
| The beta of Ubuntu 9.10--or Karmic Koala as 
| it's also known--offers the core open-
| source updates you would expect. But it 
| also provides important enhancements in the 
| areas of disk encryption, tightened system 
| permissions and cloud service integration--
| all of which combine to make Ubuntu even 
| more attractive as the Linux distro of 
| choice on the desktop.

| Shuttleworth announced the election of 
| Elizabeth Krumbach to the Ubuntu Community 
| Council. Here is my âopen memoâ of 
| congratulations to Elizabeth:

| through your competent and tireless efforts 
| to positively contribute to FOSS (Free and 
| Open Source Software) communities like 
| Ubuntu and its upstream, Debian. 
| Collectively, it is the work done in the 
| FOSS communities that has built a âgame 
| changingâ software infrastructure which 
| already delivers business results to 
| illions of organizations around the world â 
| day in and day out. Thank you for all that 
| you do by contributing to these vitally 
| important communities!


Ubuntu Linux Server Simplifies the Cloud

| New Linux server hands VARs and resellers 
| an out-of-the-box way to sell private cloud 
| computing behind the firewall.
| With new Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (EUC) 
| capabilities and tools now fully integrated 
| into its upcoming Ubuntu 9.10 Server 
| Edition operating system, Linux vendor 
| Ubuntu is getting ready to spread the 
| benefits and promise of cloud computing to 
| corporate users, VARs and resellers.



Significant improvements in Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently installed the beta version of the upcoming
| version of Ubuntu codenamed Karmic Kuala. The changes
| since 9.04 are somewhat subtle yet significant.
| Already in the beta you can feel the polish that went
| into it. Below, in no particular order, I shall rant
| about a few improvements that puts a smile on my
| face.


Karmic Koala: The best Ubuntu Linux ever?

,----[ Quote ]
| Another real nice addition to this
| distribution for new users is the Ubuntu
| Software Center. This take on an apps store,
| makes it mindlessly easy for people to find
| and install software. Experienced Linux users
| won't need this. For them, the Synaptic
| package manager and all the other usual
| package installation programs are there, and
| that's great. But, if you have a friend who's
| just getting their feet wet in Linux, this
| feature is great.
