U-Lite Linux- Ubuntu made light.

| The default installation comes bundled with 
| Abiword and Gnumeric for word processing 
| and spreadsheets. It also comes with the  
| Kazehakase web browser and  Sylpheed mail

Thank you Ubuntu QuÃbec and Facebook

,----[ Quote ]
| Within hours of the launch Ubuntu QuÃbec 
| team members started complaining on the 
| mailing list and on tou.tvâs Facebook 
| group. We wrote to their admins, provided 
| details, wrote to the ombudsman, got canned 
| replies for all communications. We then put 
| together a Facebook group, and started 
| inviting people to join and we shared our 
| findings (now all on a public wiki). 451 
| people joined the group which is an amazing 
| number for Quebec province, given the 
| context. I never ever thought Iâd use 
| Facebook for open formats and Linux support 
| advocacy in such a way!


You donât need Kopete Facebook plugin anymore

,----[ Quote ]
| As for Kopete. As protocols start to use 
| XMPP, the need of hiding XMPP for the end 
| user arises. The account wizard should 
| display the services known by name, and do 
| the XMPP setup with the known preferences. 
| May be something I can work on now that I 
| donât need to maintain the protocol 
| anymore. And I almost forget: we need a way 
| to migrate current users of the plugin.


Acer AspireRevo nettop review

,----[ Quote ]
| Amazingly, this nettop also supports 
| 802.11n wireless. Ubuntu found the wireless 
| chipset and we were able to attach to a D-
| Link DIR-855 router in seconds. Most 
| netbooks from HP and Asus do not support 
| the fast N standard yet, running at over 
| 100Mbps, so this was a welcome surprise, 
| especially for a system that could work as 
| a prime media server (with 160GB of 
| storage) for streaming movies from a NAS.



Ubuntu 9.10 on Dell Latitude D820 Laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| The PowerBook G4 Mac in the house finally
| quit working. We splurged $300 on a brand new
| laptop recently. We got a 3 year old Dell
| Latitude D820 from Craigslist. With 2.16 GHz
| Intel Core Duo, and 1920Ã1200 screen
| resolution â that makes for an impressive
| system with Ubuntu 9.10 installed.
| [...]
| All in all, I am very pleased with the clean
| look and speedy performance of Ubuntu 9.10 on
| the Dell D820. Linux has come a long way, and
| now looks totally professional, especially on
| a high resolution screen. It certainly feels
| like Iâm using serious computing power, and
| the fact that itâs open source, free, and so
| adaptable â is just inspiring. Thanks to the
| leagues of open source developers out there
| who created an amazing system, which in my
| opinion is clearly superior to Windows on the
| basis of speed, flexibility, and cost. Iâd
| like to hear from others if they also have
| similar opinions on the speed issues â and if
| so â why isnât everyone switching to Linux on
| the basis of that metric alone.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
