Product Spotlight: Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| If you are not sure about deploying a 
| cloud, and want to give it a try without 
| breaking your IT budget, Ubuntu Enterprise 
| Cloud is the way to go. Although the 
| installation of both controller and nodes 
| can be quite a challenge, the reward is 
| that you will not have spent a single penny 
| on software in the process of discovery. 
| And once you have your UEC up and running, 
| you will find it performs as well as the 
| competition.

,----[ Quote ]
| In Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - Lucid Lynx - due for 
| release in April 2010, the Ubuntu Software 
| Centre moves to version 1.1 and gains at 
| least two new choices â Featured and System 
| Packages. Ubuntu introduced the Software 
| Centre (currently at version 1.0.3) with 
| Ubuntu 9.10 'Karmic Koala', released in 
| October 2009, to provide a simple method 
| for managing applications and utilities on 
| the desktop.

| team unleashed the third and last alpha 
| version of the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Analysis: Ubuntu 10.04 Keeping Pace, Or More, With Windows 7

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu community released Alpha 3 of 
| the next-generation Lucid Lynx version of 
| its desktop OS, and it's becoming

| daylight between Windows 7 and the free 
| operating system. 


Beautify your Ubuntu desktop using the software center

,----[ Quote ]
| There is nothing wrong with wanting to 
| spruce up your computing environment. Sure 
| there are those who live and breathe more 
| than comfortably in a console environment 
| but if you function in a GUI then 
| appearances can matter and if it does there 
| are more than enough options for you to do 
| so in Ubuntu. In fact any Linux desktop can 
| be beautified in this or a similar fashion. 
| I have found two important programs for you 
| to install from the Ubuntu Software Center 
| that will allow you to drastically change 
| the appearance of your Ubuntu desktop and 
| app windows.

| For starters, Ubuntu Studio is a multimedia 
| enhanced version of your favorite linux 
| distribution, Ubuntu. And I must say, the 
| basic artwork in Ubuntu Studio that include 
| themes, wallpapers and iconsets, are way 
| better than that in the original Ubuntu 
| itself. Here is a nice collection of 20 
| Ubuntu Studio Wallpapers you might want to 
| check out.


Ubuntu 10.04 to Include Chromium Web Browser

,----[ Quote ]
| While Firefox will remain Ubuntuâs default 
| web browser, the Ubuntu community has added 
| the Chromium browser to Lucid Lynxâs 
| repositories. Chromium is the open source 
| version of Googleâs Chrome web browser. In 
| Lucid Lynx Alpha 3, the Chromium browser is 
| super easy to install right form the Ubuntu 
| Software Center. The current version of 
| Chromium is from the 5.0 branch and seems 
| to be very stable. Hopefully, this package 
| will be kept up-to-date as Google seems to 
| be upgrading Chrome at an amazing pace.

Linux vs Windows 7

,----[ Quote ]
| And this is where Linux can make a big difference. There's nothing in Windows
| 7 that Linux can't do, and in most cases, do it better. Our machines are
| quicker and more efficient. Our desktops are more innovative and less static.
| Our apps are more powerful, cheaper and less partisan, and Linux security has
| never been better. But best of all, we have complete control over the future
| of Linux, and it's success or failure at the hands of Windows 7 is in our
| hands.


Seven things Windows 7 can learn from Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| 1. More frequent release cycles. As Iâve already explained, Microsoftâs worst
| enemy has been its very long release cycles. Linux distributors, on the other
| hand, have the opposite problem â too frequent release cycles. But what would
| a consumer be more interested in, an operating system thatâs eight years old
| (Windows XP) or one thatâs updated every year or even six months? Fresh
| product releases means fresh marketing and Microsoft knows this. From Windows
| 7 on itâs bye, bye many-year release cycles and hello two year cycles at the
| most.
