Discovering Ubuntu 9.10, a Free Linux OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 9.10, code-named Karmic Koala, 
| debuted in late Oct 2009. And unlike the 
| commercial operating systems, Ubuntu is 
| totally free;it doesn't cost you a dime. 
| Eric Geier tells you all you need to know 
| about this nifty Ubuntu upgrade.

Canonical copyright assignment policy 'same as others' 

,----[ Quote ]
| "The guidance at Canonical is that we 
| encourage our employees to sign copyright 
| assignment agreements for the projects they 
| participate in (as far as I know we've done 
| so for MySQL, Zope, FSF, Novell, Red Hat, 
| Intel and others) in order to facilitate 
| the upstreaming of their work. There are 
| variations on the language used. 
| Canonical's was highlighted in a recent LWN 
| article, but I think the article created 
| the very mistaken impression that 
| Canonical's agreement is materially 
| different from any of the others I've 
| mentioned."

Canonical releases Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu developers have announced the 
| availability of Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS, the 
| fourth maintenance update to the Long Term 
| Support (LTS) version of the Ubuntu Linux 
| distribution, first released at the end of 
| April 2008. The maintenance release of 
| "Hardy Heron" includes 77 updates, covering 
| several bugs, security issues and errors in 
| the installation system. These issues 
| include, Nautilus not displaying Samba 
| shares for certain networks, specific 
| hardware fixes for Dell computers and GRUB 
| installation failures on certain non-Ext3 
| file systems.


Ubuntu: More bugs than ever? [Nope!]

,----[ Quote ]
| Interestingly enough,  the amount of open 
| bugs has stayed relatively steady since 
| Ubuntu 8.10, with Intrepid (8.10) 
| containing 290 bugs compared to 272 in 
| Karmic (9.10). In contrast to this, the 
| last Long Term Support edition of Ubuntu 
| (Hardy â 8.04) contained the most open bugs 
| with a whopping 466 bugs remaining open to 
| this day.


Surviving Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| I have recently converted all but one of my 
| personal computers to Ubuntu. To be more 
| specific I am now using Ubuntu 9.10 on two 
| desktops and one Netbook. Windows XP is 
| only surviving on my laptop for support 
| reasons and handling accounting backups on 
| a program that only works in Windows. That 
| conversion is also in development and 
| sometime soon I have a very good feeling 
| Windows XP will die on my notebook and 
| Ubuntu will rise. Wait, I am being too 
| harsh in my descriptive passage. Windows XP 
| meant a lot to me over the years and it was 
| truly great! But it is time to move on. It 
| has been a gamble but so far so good.
