10 Days of Ubuntu 10.10 Feature Requests

Filed under
Ubuntu

If you’ve read my past two articles (here and here), you’re hopefully aware of several things:

1. I am a very happy Ubuntu user.

2. That said, Ubuntu is not perfect. Yes, it does have some problems. These are outlined in more detail in my Ubuntu Report Card (2009) article.

3. Out of a desire to help, I’ve been compiling feature requests from fellow Ubuntu users. What has kept you from switching to Ubuntu full-time, and what do you hope Ubuntu changes in the future?

My next series of articles are the culmination of emails and comments received as a result of point #3.

Here's where Vala Panel AppMenu comes in.
  • Parole Media Player 0.9.0 Released
    Development for the Xfce media player is back on! Well over a year since the last release, Parole 0.9.0 brings a fresh set of features and fixes.

Reviews: OpenELEC and Clear Linux

I next turned my attention to a distribution which has only recently been added to the DistroWatch database: Clear Linux. The Clear Linux distribution is unusual in a few ways. For one, the project is not designed to be a full featured or general purpose operating system; Clear Linux focuses on performance more than features. The distribution is fairly minimal and is designed with cloud computing in mind, though it may also be used in other areas, particularly on servers. Read more
