I made some progress -- and some discoveries -- today with my Xubuntu 7.04 Feisty installation on the Maxspeed Maxterm thin client.
First of all, while I think we can all agree that the GIMP, in its heaviness, doesn't really fit in with the Xubuntu philosophy of lighter apps for a lighter window manager.
A new mineral discovered in Serbia shares the chemical composition of kryptonite, the fictitious green substance that robbed comic book and film hero Superman of his powers.
In Superman Returns, the chemical composition of kryptonite is identified as "sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide with fluorine."
Here is my typical customization on Ubuntu 7.04 after installation. I am sure everyone who read this blog regularly knows that I am running Ubuntu on my production system. Ubuntu’s performance, features, and all blah.. blah.. all every one in this tux world knows. So I want to present here what I customize in my shiny new Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn).
MS-Windows can be a good operating system.
It is possible to define a non-standard sized inode by using the mke2fs tool with an undocumented option, -I.

So with all the excitement about the new release of Ubuntu Feisty Fawn I decided to give it a shot. While I am a big fan of open source software and my servers are usually nix boxes I have tried a couple times and gave up (once was redhat, the other was mandrake 9). Ubuntu is touted as having the best out of the box experience so I figured I would give it a try.
Eben Moglen has posted a weblog entry on what he will be doing once the GPLv3 process stops dominating his life. "As I return to teaching at Columbia I need to concentrate more of my remaining spare time and effort on the affairs of the Software Freedom Law Center.
