Ubuntu 10.04 Beta One Released â My First Impressions

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve read about all of the changes online 
| (which are below), and from what Iâve read, 
| itâs faster, more reliable, cleaner bootup 
| screen (which is very simplified), and a 
| brand new theme. It always seems to be that 
| Ubuntu always has a different theme when 
| they release a new version!


Ubuntu Unravelled

| There is also an Ubuntu Foundation that has 
| dedicated funds of $10 million that could 
| keep Ubuntu going if Canonical stopped 
| backing it. Iâve previously been critical 
| of Canonical keeping the grasp on the 
| trademark, and not giving the dormant 
| Foundation greater control. With the funds 
| Canonical has put into Ubuntu I suppose it 
| is reasonable for it to have a pseudo-
| guaranteed position. Mark Shuttleworth has 
| been a member of the âCommunity Councilâ 
| since inception and was willing to stand 
| for election as if he was any other person 
| of the community. This is quite telling of 
| Canonical not enforcing a control that it 
| legally could. At the last developer summit 
| Mark announced that he would be passing the 
| helm to Jane Silber allowing Mark to take a 
| more âhands onâ role.


OMG! Replacement coloured indicator message alert icons for Lucid

| The above icons come in all main Tango! 
| colours as well as one awesome Ubuntu 
| Aubergine coloured one for the brand-
| obsessed contingent, too. (Which, I must 
| say, looks mighty awesome when using the 
| Radiance theme)


FreeBSD 7.3-release: I'm not done yet

,----[ Quote ]
| I've heard on BSD Talk, which I recommend 
| highly, that some kind of journaling is 
| coming to the FFS/UFS in FreeBSD. I don't 
| know what the real-geek opinion of 
| journaling in BSD is, but it seems to me 
| like a good idea.
| So I'll have a whole lot of user files 
| (with my 3 GB+ of Thunderbird mail on an 8 
| GB ext3-formatted USB stick) on this 
| FreeBSD installation, and I could very well 
| see myself in this environment at least 
| until Debian Squeeze's release as a Stable 
| distribution is imminent.



FreeBSD 7.3 Updates BSD Legacy

,----[ Quote ]
| The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team this
| week put out the FreeBSD 7.3 release which
| is   about four months after FreeBSD 8 was
| released.
| FreeBSD is known as a solid, stable and
| reliable open source operating system. It
| should come as no surprise then that many
| users of FreeBSD don't jump to the next
| major version number right when it becomes
| available, but rather stay with the legacy
| version for a while.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
