There's Something About Ubuntu

| In the meantime, however, "I benefit 
| because Debian can use Ubuntu packages with 
| no problem," Mack added. "I only wish the 
| other distros would dump RPM and switch to 
| .deb -- there would be fewer packaging 
| headaches."

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Almost all types of hardware and 
| configurations are compatible with Ubuntu, 
| and Ubuntu includes a hardware checker to 
| ensure that all your hardware is working as 
| it should be. I would doubt this tool would 
| be needed in most cases, as Ubuntu works 
| out of the box most of the time, but itâs 
| there should you need it.
| So there you have it, possibly the most 
| consumer friendly version of Ubuntu yet. 
| Yes, thereâs a bit of a learning curve here 
| and there (especially when installing 
| programs, plug-ins) and you do start to 
| miss the âwizardâ to guide you through 
| complex operations, but aside from that, 
| Ubuntu makes a great Windows alternative 
| for those of you who just want to get on 
| with things.


Ubuntu 10.04: Ten Days In 

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve been quite happy with Lucid all in 
| all.  Itâs a solid LTS release that 
| incorporates a number of new features 
| alongside impressive stability.  If you 
| havenât upgraded yet, youâre missing out.


âWe positioned Ubuntu as a version of Linux that was personal and non-technicalâ

,----[ Quote ]
| Mark Shuttleworth, Founder, Canonical and 
| Ubuntu Linux shared his thoughts with 
| Srikanth RP on the increasing significance 
| of open source, the roadmap for the cloud 
| and why he thinks Ubuntu will succeed on 
| the desktop, where other equally famed 
| competitors have failed.


UDS-M: Design, design, design!

,----[ Quote ]
| Ivanka Majic, the Canonical design team 
| manager, held a design team plenary in the 
| auditorium at the Ubuntu Developer Summit 
| where she talked about the design team as a 
| whole, what they do and how they do it. As 
| this is the first UDS that has a dedicated 
| design track, many people in the community 
| haven't had a lot to do with the design 
| team and perhaps are unsure of their inner 
| workings.


How Old Are Ubuntu Users? 

,----[ Quote ]
| Notably, however, one of the data sets from 
| the Ubuntu Forums implies that a not-
| insignificant portion of the community is 
| older than 50.  That conclusion is backed 
| up by anecdotal evidence of the presence of 
| seniors among a group where we might not 
| expect to find many, given that they were 
| contemplating retirement before Linux even 
| hit the desktop.
| Different authors have written about why 
| Linux can work for the elderly, and an 
| âUbuntu for Seniorsâ project has even been 
| registered on Launchpad, although it 
| appears dormant.  Nonetheless, the retired 
| crowd seems to be an important part of the 
| Ubuntu demographic, even though it may 
| often be overlooked.


Ubuntu 10.04 marks 5 years of Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| With the release of Ubuntu 10.04 I marked 5 
| years of Ubuntu usage and involvement.
| During these years there were UPs and DOWNs 
| but in general I have to say, that I was 
| right in 2005 to switch from Gentoo Linux 
| to Ubuntu Linux.
| In 2005 Oliver Grawert gave me a Ubuntu 
| 5.04 prerelease CD in my hand and told me I 
| should try it, even when he knew that I was 
| a Gentoo Linux addict. I tried it on my 
| company laptop (HP NC6000) and it was 
| working out of the box, without any 
| glitches these days.
| And after this I started to work on Ubuntu 
| and for Ubuntu. After my first âvirtualâ 
| meeting with Mark I was convinced that 
| Ubuntu has potential to overrule the big 2 
| distros (RH and SuSE). I dreamed about the 
| possibility that we will have an enterprise 
| ready Linux distribution for free.



Kubuntu 10.04: Another Average KDE Distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Kubuntu is an official derivative of Ubuntu,
| which focuses on using the KDE desktop
| rather than GNOME, and applications built
| with Qt over GTK. In the past, Kubuntu was
| new and fresh, and had that extra bit of
| attention paid to it that made a real
| difference. In fact, Kubuntu is mostly
| responsible for my giving up the GNOME
| desktop and preferring KDE, because Kubuntu
| implemented it right, though later on
| quality of this distro fell through the
| cracks. I tested the latest release on my
| Dell Latitude D630 laptop, an oldie but
| still one of my favorite machines.


Kubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)

,----[ Quote ]
| Hereâs a list of some ofz whatâs new in this
| release:
| The Kubuntu logo has been updated on the |
| splash screen and in the desktop menus
| KDE Plasma Desktop 4.4
| Linux kernel 2.6.32
| Amarok 2.3
| Installer slideshow
| Touchpad configuration
| Firefox KDE integration
| System notification updates
| Gnome application system tray integration
| The updated Kubuntu logo is fine but seems
| to only appear on the bootsplash screen and
| the desktop menus. Beyond that there is no
| other branding to indicate that Canonical
| is behind the release of this distro.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
