9 Steps: Make a ultra cool and good looking desktop for your Ubuntu Linux machine in 30 minutes - green versionSubmitted by srlinuxx on Thursday 20th of November 2008 01:20:19 AM Filed under
kimchikid.com: We already concluded in my previous guide (from April) that we think that Ubuntu might be the greatest OS in the world. But that doesn’t change the fact that the desktop looks very dull out of the box.
ostatic.com: While I remain in agreement with many observers who see the economic downturn as potentially very positive for open source, I have to wonder whether we're going to see some of the leadership open source companies swallowed up in all the financial carnage.
linuxdevices.com: A popular talking toy robot from Tomy Corp. runs Linux on a PXA-270-based single-board computer (SBC) from Mobisense Systems. The 6.5-inch tall i-Sobot has been dubbed "the smallest humanoid robot in production" by Guinness World Records, says Tomy.
thesourceshow.org: No it's not Sizzlean. It's Ubuntu Server. I have been running Fedora on the web server in my basement for years and years. I took my web sites off line for a few hours (you noticed didn't you?) and started from scratch with Ubuntu 8.10 Server.
jonobacon.org: After a number of follow-up calls, a functional specification and some testing we are now proud to announce the Ubuntu Hall Of Fame:

phoronix.com: If all goes according to plan, the first alpha release for Ubuntu 9.04 (the Jaunty Jackalope) will be released tomorrow. It's not even been one month since the release of Ubuntu 8.10, but this first alpha release will show early signs of what we can expect.
linux.com: StarOffice 9 reminds me of the classic Monty Python skit in which Graham Chapman wrestles himself. Although StarOffice is being aggressively presented as an alternative to Microsoft Office, it seems to be equally marketed and bundled to compete against OpenOffice.org.
royal.pingdom: All Linux distributions have their own home base: their homepage. How well is this homepage taken care of and how well does it perform? To answer these questions we have monitored the uptime and load time of the homepages for 16 Linux distributions for a month.
ulteo.com: Following its commitment to desktop virtualization solutions, Ulteo announced today that they were releasing the first installable version of their Open Virtual Desktop solution for enterprises.
education.zdnet: I posted a number of pieces Monday about OLPC and its XO laptop (now for sale on Amazon in a reboot of the Give One Get One program), one of which declared that OLPC was dead. A year ago, that would have been worthy of a pretty serious flame war.
jdeeth.blogspot: I last booted Windows on my year-old laptop on October 8, according to my SETI@Home stats. I hadn't realized my conversion had been so complete, but over the course of the last few months, I found myself in Gates World less and less for fewer and fewer things. So it seems I'm now officially a Linux Geek.
