Project Awesome Opportunity 

,----[ Quote ]
| In the continued interests of making Ubuntu 
| a rocking platform for opportunistic 
| developers, today we formulated the plan 
| for Project Awesome Opportunity. The goal 
| is simple: build an opportunistic 
| development workflow into Ubuntu. You will 
| install one package from Universe and your 
| Ubuntu will be hot-rodded for opportunistic 
| application development, making development 
| more fun and more accessible for a glorious 
| itch scratching smackdown.


Portable Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week, I made note of one of the more 
| intriguing software packages I have come 
| across in a long time: Portable Ubuntu. I 
| said at the time that, as a means of 
| bringing the convenience of Unix utilities 
| to my Windows workstation...

| awful sentence.

Ubuntu 10.04 alpha 2 brings Pitivi, panel changes

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu development community announced
| today the availability of Ubuntu 10.04 alpha
| 2, a new prerelease of the next major version
| of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. This alpha
| is the first Ubuntu release to completely omit
| HAL, a Linux hardware abstraction layer that
| is being deprecated in favor of DeviceKit.


Canonical releases Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu developers have announced the
| availability of the second alpha release of
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, code named "Lucid Lynx".
| The latest development milestone is the
| second of three planned alpha releases,
| which will be followed by two beta releases
| and then a release candidate.


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 Has Plymouth

,----[ Quote ]
| A few minutes ago, the Ubuntu development
| team unleashed the second alpha version of
| the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)
| operating system, due for release in late
| April this year. As usual, we've downloaded
| a copy of it in order to keep you up-to-
| date with the latest changes in the Ubuntu
| 10.04 LTS development.


Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Removes HAL

,----[ Quote ]
| "HAL" unfortunately isn't the heinous
| supercomputer from Kubrick's film 2001, but
| Ubuntu's Hardware Abstraction Layer between
| Ubuntu's hardware and software. It has now
| disappeared entirely from the current
| Ubuntu 10.04 test version, it's function
| being taken over among other things by
| DeviceKit. The advantage to this, according
| to the official announcement, is that
| Ubuntu has a faster boot and startup from
| hibernate time.


Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Benchmarks With Early Fedora 13 Numbers

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, there are both good and bad
| performance improvements for Ubuntu 10.04
| LTS Alpha 2 in relation to Ubuntu 9.10.
| Most of the negative regressions are
| attributed to the EXT4 file-system losing
| some of its performance charm. With using a
| pre-alpha snapshot of Fedora 13 and the
| benchmark results just being provided for
| reference purposes, we will hold off on
| looking into greater detail at this next
| Red Hat Linux update until it matures. You
| can run your own tests though if you wish
| using our open-source Phoronix Test Suite
| benchmarking platform.


What's Coming In Lucid Alpha 2?

,----[ Quote ]
| The second Alpha release of Ubuntu 10.04
| Lucid Lynx is due for release next Thursday
| (14th January) but what can you expect to
| find inside it?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
