OS war heats up as open source system released

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source system Ubuntu is primed for the 
| release of its 9.10 system, Karmic Koala, 
| just as Microsoft has released Windows 7.
| Ubuntu is made by Canonical, an offshoot of 
| popular open source OS Linux. 


Ubuntu Linux 9.10 'Karmic Koala' Starts Its Climb

,----[ Quote ]
| In February, Ubuntu Linux founder Mark 
| Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu 9.10 
| would be codenamed the "Karmic Koala". 
| Today, after months of development and buzz, 
| the Karmic Koala is being officially 
| released into the wild.
| The open source OS's developers are 
| simultaneously releasing the server, desktop 
| and netbook editions of Ubuntu 9.10 today, 
| offering what Shuttleworth earlier this week 
| referred to as a complete platform that he 
| hopes will become the default alternative to 
| Microsoft's Windows operating systems.


Ubuntu 9.10: Linux for business

,----[ Quote ]
| When you think "Ubuntu", you almost 
| certainly think of it as a desktop 
| distribution. Make no mistake, Ubuntu 9.10 
| is a great desktop distribution â but that's 
| not what Canonical, Ubuntu's parent company, 
| is focusing on with this release and the 
| next, long-term support version, which will 
| follow this one. No, Canonical has its eyes 
| on the prize, and that's the server market.
| The sad truth is that, except for Novell 
| with SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop), 
| the big-name Linux distributors tend to 
| focus on servers. After all, as Red Hat has 
| shown, that's where the real money is.

Preparing for Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

,----[ Quote ]
| Last, if you are going to install Ubuntu on 
| a netbook or some other system with a very 
| small screen, when you boot the LiveCD 
| choose the "try Ubuntu without changes" 
| option, instead of going directly to the 
| "Install Ubuntu" option. Once it is booted, 
| set auto-hide on both the upper and lower 
| panels, by right-clicking on each of them, 
| choose Properties, and then click auto-hide 
| and OK. Then start the installation from the 
| desktop icon. You'll be happy to have the 
| little bit of extra screen space this gains 
| you for the installation window.

Hands On with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

| When I booted into my Ubuntu Linux 9.10 
| desktop, I heard the Ubuntu theme play. So 
| sound worked fine right from the start. No 
| need to fiddle with any settings to get it 
| working. Ditto with networking.

10 reasons Ubuntu 9.10 will be a game changer for business

| October 29, 2009. Mark your calendars,
| people, because that is the day the Linux
| landscape will shift, and the bar will be
| raised. Why do I say this? Ubuntu Karmic
| Koala is released that day and, even without
| reading between any lines, you can easily
| see where Canonical is taking its flagship

Ubuntu 9.10 for desktops heeds user complaints

| Canonical Ltd. has shown users some love

| Thursday with more than 50 fixes that users
| have requested.


Running Ubuntu 9.10 With Older PC Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 9.10 offers a number of new features
| to Linux desktop and server users along with
| other core improvements to this incredibly
| popular Linux distribution. In a number of
| our tests today with an older ThinkPad
| notebook, Ubuntu 9.10 also provided the best
| performance when compared to earlier Ubuntu
| releases from the past 18 months. However,
| in six of the eighteen tests that were run,
| there were notable performance regressions
| involving Ubuntu 9.10. Many performance
| improvements can be attributed to the switch
| from the EXT3 to EXT4 file-system by
| default, but in the tests that did not
| benefit from this newer file-system, it
| ended up degrading the performance. The
| ioquake3 performance with the open-source
| ATI R300 driver is another troubling area
| with Ubuntu 9.10. Fortunately though when
| using newer hardware we have not encountered
| as many performance drops, and even still,
| most users will find Ubuntu 9.10 worth the
| upgrade.


Ubuntu 9.10: confidence riding high at Canonical

,----[ Quote ]
| Recent moves by Shuttleworth to market
| Ubuntu through IBM are again an indication
| of his cleverness at trying to embed Ubuntu
| in the desktop space. His competitors under-
| estimate him at their peril.
| He must be more than encouraged by
| Microsoft's growing, often clumsy, attempts
| to gain traction in the open source space.
| The latest indication of Microsoft's
| realisation that lock-in may just do more
| harm than good to itself is the announcement
| that it will be releasing documentation on
| Outlook Personal Folders.
| This must be music to Shuttleworth's ears.
| Five years ago, one could not imagine an
| 800-pound gorilla practising  anything but
| total lock-in.


Whatâs New In Ubuntu 9.10 âKarmic Koalaâ

,----[ Quote ]
| I have to say that this has been a very
| solid release so far. With so many
| improvements both under the hood and on the
| user interface, youâll be hard pressed to
| find someone that doesnât find something new
| and exciting about Ubuntu 9.10. The best
| part though? All of these improvements are
| merely leading up to the powerhouse that
| will be Ubuntu 10.04, the next Ubuntu Long
| Term Support (LTS) release. With goals of 10
| second boot times, improvements in the new
| Ubuntu Software Center, improved Artwork, as
| well as a long list of other improvements,
| Ubuntu 10.04 is sure to blow you away!

Q & A: Defragmenting a Linux System

,----[ Quote ]
| Q. I recently bought a netbook with Ubuntu
| as its operating system and would like to
| know if there is any simple way to
| defragment the drive. The help manual for
| the system only talks about a complete
| start-over with reinstalling the OS, rather
| than defragmenting it.
| A. Ubuntu Linux uses a different file system
| â or method of storing and organizing data â
| than other operating systems do. Most Ubuntu
| systems use the ext3 file system, which does
| not need regular defragmentation like a
| Windows system does.


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.
