Ubuntu readies the Karmic Koala

| What do French gendarmes, Andalucian school 
| children, Wikipedia and San Francisco 
| International airport have in common?
| It is not the set up for a tortuous pun. 
| Instead all of them are big users of the 
| free Ubuntu operating system. 


Shuttleworth stretches Ubuntu from netbooks to heavens

| The desktop and server editions of the 
| "Karmic Koala" Ubuntu 9.10 release were 
| officially launched today, although 
| Canonical was talking up the server edition 
| two weeks ago, which includes an integrated, 
| EC2-compatible cloud computing environment 
| that is based on the open source Eucalyptus 
| Project and uses KVM virtual machines. But 
| the desktop edition has seen plenty of work, 
| as El Reg explained in this review of the 
| release candidate at the beginning of the 
| month.


Mark Shuttleworth: 10 Thoughts On Ubuntu 9.10

| 1. The User Experience: âWe wanted to bring 
| design and user experience to [the Linux] 
| desktop.â Shuttleworth believes Ubuntu 9.10 
| achieves those goals.

| developers the opportunity to both develop 
| and deploy applications using Ubuntu's brand 
| of Linux. 


Everything You Need To Know about Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

,----[ Quote ]
| On October 29, Canonical is set to release 
| Ubuntu 9.10 (codenamed âKarmic Koalaâ), the 
| newest installment in the Ubuntu product 
| line. In anticipation of this release, we 
| took the release candidate (RC) for a test 
| drive. Ubuntu 9.10 RC comes on a LiveCD just 
| like its predecessors and allows you to test 
| a fully-functional installation of the 
| operating system without installing it. The 
| boot process looks very different from 
| previous versions, especially since the old 
| progress bar has been replaced with one that 
| just moves from left to right while 
| providing very little useful boot progress 
| information.


Ubuntu's new Linux tries getting cloud-friendly

,----[ Quote ]
| "What frustrates me is the term 'cloud' has 
| come to mean anything with an Internet 
| connection, including some stuff that really 
| looks familiar like internal IT," said 
| Shuttleworth in an interview. It's fair to 
| say that in Ubuntu's case, though, it's not 
| a stretch.


Ubuntu Opening The Doors

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu fans will already know that there are 
| three more days until the latest version of 
| Ubuntu drops, and we'll be knee-deep in 
| coverage when it does. Shortly after version 
| 9.10, or Karmic Koala, lands on the 
| metaphorical shelves, the next round of 
| development will hit the ground running.

Ubuntu Linux 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

| Since the launch of Desktop Linux Reviews, 
| Iâve covered a number of different 
| remastered versions of Ubuntu Linux. But I 
| havenât done a review of Ubuntu itself. I 
| wanted to wait until there was a significant 
| enough release as Iâd done a review for 
| ExtremeTech back when I was a full-time 
| employee there.
| Iâm happy to note that Ubuntu Linux has hit 
| version 9.10 and has some nifty new features 
| that make it worth reviewing here.

| Ubuntu.


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.


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.
