Adventures with Ubuntu Karmic Koala

,----[ Quote ]
| My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6 2020ax and 
| the Ubuntu version I tried to install was 
| Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala.


Running Alpha Lucid on the Dell T7500

,----[ Quote ]
| The T7500 is just stupid fast, and Lucidâs 
| a nice interface for the hardware. I donât 
| have enough up and running yet to do any 
| legitimate comparative benchmarking versus 
| my usual hardware, but itâs impressive even 
| on trivial applications. The disk usage 
| analyzer, for example, scans the entire 
| filesystem in less than ten seconds; with 
| either of my old machines, runtime was a 
| minute to two, depending on what else was 
| running. 


Ubuntu 10.04: Waiting for the Lucid Lynx

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm particularly interested in this 
| particular release of Ubuntu since I've 
| been using the previous Ubuntu LTS 8.04 
| Hardy Heron and am looking forward to 
| upgrading. For those of you in the same 
| boat, if you want to keep current on the 
| moment-by-moment (almost, anyway) changes 
| to Lucid, you can sign up to receive email 
| notifications.
| Waiting for something can be difficult and, 
| after all, in the world of technology, six-
| weeks is almost an eternity. If patience is 
| your virtue though, April 29th is right 
| around the corner.



I Never Realizedâ

Lucid Sound Applet Gets Improved

,----[ Quote ]
| One of Benjamin Humphrey's "16 things to
| improve in Ubuntu 10.04" concerned Lucid's
| new-look sound applet - a small, square,
| inconsistent little box.


Ubuntu 10.04 Icons Re-Coloured Purple...

,----[ Quote ]
| With the familiar brown tones of Ubuntu of
| yore being replaced with vibrant purple hues
| in the recent re-branding, the
| 'purplification' of the default icon set had
| to occur sooner or later.


Preview posted of Ubuntu 10.04 installer slideshow, leaves out Music Store

,----[ Quote ]
| Among the other improvements, tweaks, and
| retoolings headed to Ubuntu 10.04, the
| Ubiquity installer slideshow appears set for
| an update.


VMware shops now eligible for free SpringSource tc Server licenses

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, NPC runs three tc Server instances in
| an Ubuntu Linux VM, where each VM is
| configured with just 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM.
| When performance is a problem, "there is no
| limit, you just add another VMware box,"
| Brisbin said, adding that "the more I spread
| out the load, the more users I can support."


An insight into wrangles in the Ubuntu community

,----[ Quote ]
| If there had been some sordid attempt to try
| and push Draper out of the Ubuntu community,
| the group which has congregated around the
| most widely used GNU/Linux distribution,
| then it was worth a story. But a little
| digging came up with something entirely
| different.


Ubuntu 10.04 To Hang Onto Old Intel Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| With Ubuntu 10.04 being a Long-Term Support
| (LTS) release, Canonical is just going to
| stick with Lucid Lynx being the last release
| where Intel user-space mode-setting is
| supported, albeit for most Intel users you
| will still be greeted by a KMS experience,
| just with an older driver and many back-
| ported patches. This decision was shared on
| the ubuntu-x mailing list.


Ubuntu 10.04 Gets New Logout Dialogues

,----[ Quote ]
| Did you ever get annoyed by the
| restart/logout/shutdown countdown timers
| that presented themselves in previous Ubuntu
| releases?
| [...]
| All three main 'session' dialogues have been
| reworded thus allowing the user to make an
| informed choice as to whether the action
| selected it the one they want.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
