Introducing Lernid

| Last week, while at the Ubuntu Developer 
| Summit in Dallas I mentioned in one of the 
| roundtables about how wicked-cool it would be 
| to have a desktop client for Ubuntu Open Week, 
| Ubuntu Developer Week and other online tuition 
| events that we run.
| One of the challenges we face every time we 
| run these events is helping new community 
| members figure out how IRC works. Ideally this 
| should be as simple as running a program, 
| selecting an event and connecting.


Ubuntu 10.4 (Lucid) boot experience changing from using usplash to plymouth

| plans for the technology for the Lucid Lynx 
| boot experience, changing from using usplash

14 XSplash Themes For Ubuntu Karmic Koala


Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| I have an old Mac Mini that I wasnât using, so 
| being bored I decided to install Ubuntu on it. 
| Ubuntu is a well know distribution (distro) of 
| Linux. The latest distribution is 9.10 also 
| known as Karmic Koala, (all Ubuntu 
| distribution are named after animals.). The 
| first thing I did was I downloaded the latest 
| distribution of Ubuntu as an ISO. An ISO is 
| simply a single image of all files needed to 
| install an application, in this case Ubuntu. I 
| then burned the ISO to a CD using the burn 
| option available in Disk Utility on the Mac. I 
| did burn it at a lower speed then normal, 
| which is recommended. I then placed the CD in 
| the Macmini and restarted it, while holding 
| down the C key when the chime rang. The first 
| screen that came up asked me if I wanted to 
| run Ubuntu without installing, install Ubuntu, 
| check disk for error, or start from first hard 
| disk. I decided that I wanted to do a full 
| install, so I made that choice. (If you make 
| that choice remember that you are erasing all 
| data on the partition that you install it on.) 
| The next choice I had was whether I wanted to 
| use the full hard drive or a partition. I 
| chose to use the full hard drive, hit the 
| continue button and the installation ran 
| without any problem. Once the installation is 
| finished I set up my login name and password. 
| I removed the CD and restarted the computer, 
| Ubuntu started up without any problem.


Five Years of Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| If there is any one word that could sum up 
| Ubuntu, it would be Community.  Even the 
| definition of the word "Ubuntu" makes 
| reference to community, and how the betterment 
| of the individual and community are 
| interconnected. Nearly everyone I've met 
| through Ubuntu in the last five years cites 
| the community as the single major reason for 
| their use. In many aspects, Ubuntu is 
| technically equal to its competitors, but 
| nowhere else will you find the same level of 
| community support. Nowhere else will you find 
| the same level of friendship and positive 
| atmosphere.


Could Ubuntu get enterprises to finally embrace the cloud?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) allows you 
| to build your own private cloud on existing 
| hardware platforms that already run (or can 
| run) Ubuntu Server, which is pretty much most 
| of the Intel-based servers you have on hand. 
| UEC is really just an implantation of the 
| Eucalyptus cloud computing architecture, which 
| is interface-level compatible with 
| Amazon.com's cloud. This means that most who 
| understand and deal with AWS will find UEC to 
| be an on-premise extension of that technology, 
| generally speaking.

| Karmic Koala worked flawlessly. As far as I
| can tell, absolutely every single feature in
| my laptop works .. for the first time! You
| name it, it works!
