New flavours of Ubuntu being developed in Ireland

,----[ Quote ]
| Recently I popped down to the BT Young 
| Scientist Exhibition here in Dublin.  This is 
| for secondary school students/ High school 
| junior students in Ireland.  Itâs pretty 
| amazing to see the enthusiasm they show for 
| science and technology at an early age.
| The process starts months ago, students 
| submit a one page proposal on a topic, if 
| itâs accepted they research and come up with 
| the results, prototype or something to show 
| from it all. It also gives Industries who are 
| based over here to come and show case their 
| projects and encourage students into those 
| areas. IBM, Google, Analog Devices to name a 
| few all took part and all have offices here 
| in Ireland.


ÃberStudent - Ubuntu version for Students and Researchers

,----[ Quote ]
| ÃberStudent is a free, Ubuntu-based operating 
| system for higher education and emerging-
| generation high school students, those who 
| wish to learn to excel at the tasks and 
| habits of top students and researchers, and 
| anyone who can benefit from easy-to-use yet 
| powerful computing. Like Ubuntu, ÃberStudent 
| is a complete operating system with programs 
| for everyday computing tasks, but comes with 
| an additional core of expertly configured 
| programs, and many user-friendly extras, 
| designed to increase your academic success. 
| Itâs Software Explorer enables you to easily 
| extend ÃberStudent still further for specific 
| academic disciplines, and it doesnât stop 
| there. Music and movie lovers, gamers, 
| budding graphic designers, and those who 
| insist on an ascetically eye-popping user 
| interface will also be very pleased.

SuperOS: Like Ubuntu But Easier

,----[ Quote ]
| One problem I run into a lot when recommending
| Ubuntu to complete Linux newbies is they aren't
| used to installing codecs or using the terminal
| when they want to play DVDs, MP3s and other
| file types. Explaining the legal situation is
| something I make a point of doing but some
| people "just want it to work". This is what has
| led me to Super Ubuntu or SuperOS as it's now
| called. Once the recently released SuperOS 9.10
| was adequately seeded I downloaded this
| enhanced version of Ubuntu and took it for a
| spin.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
