| The operating system - which is based on 
| Linux Mobile - is similar to Motorola's 
| Android-based MotoBlur software, but its 
| influence over your handset's functionality 
| is even greater.


Ubuntu One for Windows & Microsoft cash?

,----[ Quote ]
| I personally migrated to Linux and FOSS 
| after repeated let downs by Microsoft 
| technology, I am loathed to give my custom 
| to them again until they produce something 
| which can compete with what I use now; 
| thats either directly or indirectly.  I am 
| rather disturbed that after years of being 
| dictated to as to how to do things by 
| Microsoft, when I finally break away and 
| get a better experience, I see Microsoft 
| trying to creep into that better 
| experience.  Having said that Ubuntu is not 
| on my main rig.
| Conversely though, Canonical deserves to 
| make money, as I say Canonical has made a 
| great product that many people enjoy, but 
| they need to keep in mind that whilst they 
| may need revenue to keep âaliveâ, they are 
| just as dependent on the users to keep with 
| Ubuntu.  Now its obvious that to change 
| back to Google is a simple step, but could 
| the perception of Yahoo provide  a negative 
| feeling from its user base towards 
| Canonical?
| [...]
| With Ubuntu seemingly going in a pro-Mono 
| direction, Mr De Icaza getting his MVP & 
| Yahoo getting a default search status, 
| without conjuring up any allegations of 
| foul play, what we can say is Ubuntu seems 
| to have a growing Microsoft theme about it.  
| (Either directly or indirectly)
| And what of GIMP?  Have we had confirmation 
| if it is definitely to be left out of 10.04 
| and if so replaced with what? A Mono app 
| perhaps?



The Samsung M1 Vodafone 360 combines functionality and form

| The Samsung M1 Vodafone 360 is a handset that
| offers a veritable feast of functions encased
| within a smart and stylish casing. It is a
| recently released smart phone which adds a
| different dimension to the Samsung range. The
| handset comes with an ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz
| processor, whilst employing the benefits of
| Power VR SDX graphics capabilities. In addition
| it utilises the Linux based LiMo operating
| system.
