Ubuntu has become the most popular Linux distribution for new Linux users. It's easy to install, easy to use, and usually "just works." But moving to a different operating system can be confusing, no matter how well-designed it is. Here's a list of tips that might save you some time while you're getting used to Ubuntu.
First of all: this is not what you want to do: the people at the Fedora project are working hard to get a Java version running which is capable to do all the stuff which SUNs Java is able to do.

Building a community is at the core of any free and open source software (FOSS) project, but few projects have faced challenges equal to Fedora's and openSUSE's efforts to create FOSS communities around formerly commercial projects, or Ubuntu's efforts to manage growth in a widely popular distribution. How to define communities, how to encourage participation from non-programmers, what community values to foster -- these are questions that community leaders from these projects have had to struggle with. Their attempts to answer the questions provide guidance to others trying to build communities within FOSS.
This month Microsoft and Mozilla released new versions of their Internet Explorer and Firefox internet browsers. Surprisingly, Firefox seems to be leading early on in the download race, and it's been more of a hit with the critics.

Xfld; ever hear of it? Neither did we until hearing of its third (0.3) release. Xfld is a Xubuntu-based LiveCD that ships with the latest development build of the Xfce desktop environment. Xfld v0.3 includes Xfce 18.104.22.168 and is based on Ubuntu Edgy Eft 6.10. With that said we decided to take a look at this LiveCD release. Those Great Looking Screenshots.

Mandriva 2007 was released the same day and showed us how integrated XGL, Compiz and AIGLX could be. Fedora Core 6 was released on the 24th and brought us an amazing Gnome 2.16 desktop with fabulous artwork. Ubuntu 6.10 came on the 26th and we couldn't wait to review it.

Nvu has been one of my favorite open source web editors since its 1.0 release in 2005.
