Install Nautilus Elementary (2.30) In Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx

,----[ Quote ]
| Nautilus Elementary 2.30 for Ubuntu 10.04 
| Lucid Lynx also comes with all the tweaks 
| that were in Karmic such as RGBA, "F8" to 
| toggle the menu bar and so on. The one thing 
| missing for now is the ClutterFlow view.


A critique of some Ubuntu Critics

,----[ Quote ]
| The theme of most of the baseless criticisms 
| is that Ubuntu is unstable for everyday use. 
| Why you ask? Because either the author 
| plugged in a peripheral that Ubuntu did not 
| recognize right away or because there are 
| some bugs that have not been fixed for period 
| of time. This has even caused some to label 
| Ubuntu as 'garbage salad.' I have no problem 
| with people expressing their views, but then 
| certain basic facts should never be 
| misconstrued to the unsuspecting person out 
| there. 
| [...]
| Global powers like Dell and IBM are shipping 
| Ubuntu preloaded computers, that should go a 
| long way to attest to the reasonable 
| reliability of the OS. Besides, those 
| companies have more resources at their 
| disposal to conduct even more rigorous 
| testing on the OS than Canonical itself can. 
| So on what basis can someone claim that 
| Ubuntu is so unreliable that the project 
| needs to be scrapped? Sure Ubuntu has 
| problems, heck everything made by man has 
| problems, but we must learn to be fair and 
| give praise where it is due. 


Girls like computers, too

,----[ Quote ]
| It's especially appropriate from Ubuntu 
| Women, as studies have shown women in open 
| source development are even more 
| underrepresented than in other tech fields.
| If women are going to change the future, they 
| have to change the now. And this contest 
| actually makes sense.
| It's not asking for what many sneer at as a 
| form of affirmative action, for girls.



I'm running the Ubuntu 10.04 beta

,----[ Quote ]
| I guess it was bound to happen sooner or
| later.
| I needed to get the laptop back into usable
| shape, and I did that by installing Ubuntu
| 10.04 LTS beta 2.


Initial impressions of Ubuntu 10.04 beta 2

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all the system seems faster than
| Karmic and pretty darn stable for a beta
| release.  I took the unprecedented-for-me
| step of making this the actual working
| system on this machine; I ddâed it from the
| spare drive onto the systemâs main hard
| drive and am now using it on this machine
| full time.  Iâve never found a beta release
| that I liked enough to do that with, until
| now.  So I think Canonical has a winner
| here.
