Ubuntu Developer Week. The Spirit of Ubuntu! 

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusion: The Ubuntu Developer Week is 
| such an amazing way to gather Ubuntu 
| enthusiasts from around the world under one 
| roof, where they can:
|    1. Learn.
|    2. Get to know each other.
|    3. Get involved in the community.
|    4. Learn to value their freedom.
|    5. Have fun.

| 5 reasons why the Ubuntu-Yahoo deal is a 
| win-win affair. 
| The fact that Yahoo! is going to be the 
| default search provider simply means they 
| offered a better deal over that of Google. 
| What this actually means is that the Ubuntu 
| brand is now more valuable than before. 
| This is likely to go a long way to secure 
| other lucrative contracts for Canonical. It 
| also means that Ubuntu is actually becoming 
| a brand over which the tech giants try to 
| outbid each other in order to do business 
| with. That is a good sign of success.


Review: Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit

,----[ Quote ]
| I last looked at Ubuntu 9.04 a little over 
| six months ago.  So I decided it was time 
| to see what has changed.  Since Iâm now 
| testing on a 64-bit machine, I decided to 
| test the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. 


What bothers me about the Ubuntu-Yahoo deal

,----[ Quote ]
| On Tuesday, Rick Spencer announced on the 
| Ubuntu developers mailing list that Ubuntu 
| has entered a revenue sharing deal with 
| Yahoo! and will make Yahoo! the default 
| search engine in the next Ubuntu release 
| (10.04, Lucid Lynx). This sparked an 
| extremely long discussion thread on the 
| Ubuntu Forums about whether this is a good 
| idea or not.
| Generally speaking (with few exceptions), 
| the reactions fall into one of two 
| categories:
|    1. This is great. I wonât use Yahoo! 
|    myself, but if it makes money for 
|    Ubuntu, why not? How hard is it to 
|    change the defaults. Two clicks.
|    2. This is unacceptable. Yahoo! is in 
|    bed with Microsoft. This is wrong. If 
|    Ubuntu needs money, we should donate. 
|    Why wasnât the community consulted?

Ubuntu fans... 



Lucid open for development

| We expect this more conservative policy for
| package syncing will enable us to prepare a
| more stable long-term support release. The
| cost of this approach is that not only
| regressions will be delayed from reaching
| Lucid - bugfixes uploaded to Debian unstable
| will be delayed too (packages uploaded to
| Debian unstable normally donât reach Debian
| testing for at least 10 days).
