Gobuntu Changes Going Back Into Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

The release of Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 1 is running a few days behind schedule, but an interesting announcement has come out of the Canonical camp this morning. The news coming out of the Canonical camp is that developers will be trying to merge as many of Gobuntu's changes back into the mainline Ubuntu code-base as possible.

By default though, Ubuntu will continue to ship with firmware, binary-only drivers, and the rest. One example of the changes to come, however, is that during the installation process the user will be asked whether they want to install only free-libre software.
