  • Ubuntu Touch OTA-7 Update Is Being Tested, on Track for October Launch

    The Ubuntu Touch OS is getting a new OTA very soon and the developers are putting the final touches on it. The update is still on track for an October 19 launch and it will remain that way if nothing goes wrong.

  • False Rumors About Microsoft Buying Canonical Are Ridiculous

    The rumor that Microsoft is interested in buying Canonical doesn't seem to go away, despite the fact that there is no real basis to it. We’ve already explained why that is unlikely to happen, but people still don't listen, so here are some more reasons why the rumor is perfect for April 1.

  • Is Microsoft Wooing Canonical & Important Departures…

    A while back I was fitted for a tinfoil hat by some because I had the audacity — the audacity! — to suggest that it would be a shrewd business move by the now-Linux-loving Microsoft to buy Canonical because a.) Canonical had technology that Microsoft would want and need to advance in mobile (like the Ubuntu Phone technology, which blows Microsoft’s out of the water currently), and b.) by this time, Mark Shuttleworth is beyond tired of flushing millions after millions down the toilet (though, as a half-billionaire, he still has several decades of current spending before his bank account resembles, well, mine), and who can blame him?

    You laughed. Well, sports fans, allow me to hand back your tinfoil hat and ask, who’s laughing now? Linux Journal’s James Darvell outlines this scenario in great detail, quoting a blog item reporting the business deal, and makes an observation worth keeping an eye on: “Microsoft could convert Canonical into a very profitable acquisition by eliminating the unprofitable parts of the company,” he writes. “In fact, it could become the dominant player in the cloud space, and secure the company’s future.”

  • Spice Vulnerabilities Closed in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 15.04

    A Spice vulnerability has been found and repaired in the Ubuntu 15.04 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS operating systems.

    The SPICE protocol client and server library has been patched in the past few months a couple of times, and this is just the latest fix. It's not a major component, but users should really close any kind of exploit and vulnerability and upgrade their systems frequently.
