Jolicloud: Ubuntu Linux Touch Screens Meet the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Linux will ship on roughly 5 million 
| computers this year, according to Canonical 
| founder Mark Shuttleworth. And that number 
| could grow further thanks to Jolicloud â an 
| Ubuntu-based operating system designed to blend 
| netbooks with cloud computing. Moreover, 
| Jolicloud recently gained touch-screen support, 
| which could position the OS for mobile Internet 
| devices (MIDs). But is Jolicloud ready for 
| partners? Here are some insights.


Linux Mint 9 RC Backs Up Your Data and Application Choices

,----[ Quote ]
| We've previously suggested that Linux Mint, a 
| distant cousin of Ubuntu, might make for a 
| better beginner's Linux OS. With the inclusion 
| of an incremental backup tool, app selection 
| backups, and a smarter software finder, Mint is 
| hitting its mark.



Have a Mint

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all Iâd say the Mint experience was
| pretty much a wash; there were some things
| that I didnât need to do on Mint that Iâd
| have had to do in Ubuntu, and other things
| I needed to fix in Mint that arenât broken
| in Ubuntu.  But, and this is the key, I
| got a good working installation to start
| with, whereas Ubuntu didnât give me that
| this time around.  So on that basis alone,
| Iâm sticking with Mint for a while.


Spotlight on Linux: Linux Mint 9

,----[ Quote ]
| The best thing about Linux Mint is its out
| of the box capabilities. Nothing says
| ease-of-use like having browser and
| multimedia plugins and codecs already
| included and ready to use. Nothing is
| appreciated more either, by a lot of
| users. There is a large community of
| friendly and helpful users surrounding the
| Mint project, so be sure to drop by the
| forums. This version comes with GNOME
| 2.30, but other desktop versions follow
| soon after initial release. Any way you
| look at it, Linux Mint is one of the best
| distributions available today from any
| project, no matter the size.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
