,----[ Quote ]
| According to a posting on the Ubuntu
| developers mailing list, Ubuntu developers
| are planning to push the next release of
| Firefox, 3.6.4, to the current  Ubuntu
| release, Lucid Lynx 10.04, and to older
| versions such as Hardy (8.04LTS), Jaunty
| (9.04) and Karmic Koala (9.10). These older
| versions currently have Firefox 3.0  and
| xulrunner 1.9 both of which are no longer
| supported by Mozilla.


Ubuntu To Pull In New Versions Of Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu's longstanding policy of not pulling
| in new major versions of packages into their
| stable repositories is facing a slight
| change. Canonical along with the Ubuntu
| development community have been making it
| easier to deploy Mozilla Firefox web-browser
| updates into existing Ubuntu releases.

Why does Ubuntu keep shipping with Evolution?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Evolution mail client has been the
| default such application in Ubuntu since I
| got to know of Linux. Sure it is the default
| GNOME mail/calendar application, but I really
| am of the view that Ubuntu needs to drop it
| in favor of say Mozilla's very brilliant
| Thunderbird.
| For one thing running Evolution on my machine
| makes me wonder if it is IE in disguise. It
| is, for starters, very heavy on my system
| resources. My hdd light keeps blinking to
| hell when I click on that application at any
| time. It also seems to take an eternity to
| respond to my mouse clicks.
