Debian Lenny goes to 5.0.4, and so do I

,----[ Quote ]
| When Debian issues a point release, as it 
| just did with the current Stable 
| distribution Lenny going from the 5.0.3 to 
| 5.0.4, it's no big deal. They happen. But 
| you don't need to throw out your Lenny 
| install CDs or do any kind of 
| reinstallation.

Ubuntu Global Jam: Will Partners Pitch In?

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical and the Ubuntu community are busy 
| polishing Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), a major 
| upgrade set to debut in April 2010. But 
| before the new Linux distribution arrives, 
| the Ubuntu community will host an Ubuntu 
| Global Jam from March 26 to March 28. The 
| big question: Will customers and partners 
| also join in the Jam? Should they? Here are 
| some thoughts.


Ubuntu advances: Why Ubuntu server installations will surge in 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| While desktop Ubuntu shines as the leader 
| among Linux distributions, with analysts 
| estimating their share up to 95 percent of 
| the Linux desktop market, Ubuntu's server 
| version lags. Expect huge advances in Ubuntu 
| server installations during 2010 as a result 
| of Ubuntu improvements, customer concern as 
| SunOS comes under Oracle control, and 
| restlessness among the Red Hat user base. 
| Unlike Ubuntu server clients, Red Hat server 
| clients must pay license fees, necessary 
| because many applications remain Red Hat 
| specific. Troy expects the Ubuntu server to 
| make substantial advances attaining more 
| application support and certifications.



Mark Shuttleworth: "Time for mass consumer sales of Linux on desktop has not
yet come"

,----[ Quote ]
| The GNOME-version is downloaded about twice as much as the KDE version.
| But KDE is still a very important community, as a source of innovation
| in the community. I'm very interested and excited by the work that is
| going on KDE 4 and I'm excited that a lot of that is happening inside
| of Ubuntu.
