In the usual announcement to the Ubuntu developer list Ubuntu founder Mark Suttleworth this morning announced the name of the next Ubuntu release plus one, due out in October 2007: Gutsy Gibbon.
Gutsy will follow Feisty Fawn due for release on April 19.
But, more interestingly, Shuttleworth also talked of a new ultra-free version of Ubuntu that can be expected alongside Gutsy Gibbon.
Today security is one of the key aspects in our daily life - sometimes conscious, sometimes unconscious. Security has many aspects and one of them is computer security or security of your or your business' computer data. In this tutorial I will show how to encrypt a whole disk drive using (X)Ubuntu Feisty, dm-crypt, and LUKS. The article also contains some legal considerations.
Its true. Linux lovers love to mount. Mounting things is part and parcel of a linux lovers life. They mount everything. Now before you get the wrong idea I wish to specify that I am talking about the mount command that is part of linux based systems.
Ubuntu Feisty Fawn has improves in graphics and user friendliness, one of the tools install by default is baobab. Baobab is one of the gnome utils. As the name didn’t suggest anything, but it is a cool disk usage analyzer. As it scan your folders and present you the disk usage statistics reports in graphs. Look at the screenshot:
Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died Wednesday night in Manhattan. He was 84.
Open source security is like a military general who shows his plans to both his allies and his enemies. On the one hand, his enemies can try to exploit the plan by targeting its weaknesses. But on the other hand, by exposing his tactics to those who want to help, the plan is ultimately much stronger as a result of their feedback and modifications.
In a brief research note this morning, Pacific Crest’s Brendan Barnicle writes that it “seems unlikely” that Dell will offer Red Hat’s (RHT) version of Linux on its desktop PCs. Barnicle writes that his contacts believe the company is more likely to choose a version of Linux from Ubuntu or possibly Novell (NOVL).
In January, two open-source advocacy groups -- the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) and the Free Standards Group (FSG) -- merged and formed the Linux Foundation. Last month, the new nonprofit organization named its board of directors, which includes representatives from Linux vendors and users, as well as Linux kernel developers and other open-source community members.
The long-anticipated Debian 4.0 may only just have made its debut this week, but it's never too soon for the developer community to be making plans for its successor.
With its upcoming "Feisty Fawn" version of Ubuntu Linux due April 19, Canonical hopes to shed light on what happens when things go wrong.

I never thought I’d need it, but today I did. I needed a timer (for shutdown) in linux.
context: I was doing some bittorrent downloads during an ISP limited timeframe. I had to finish by 8:00am otherwise it would cost me dearly!
tried and failed: I googled for “timed shutdown” and found two main solutions… THAT DIDN’T WORK in openSUSE.
So what worked?
Got a big block of upgrades today, including Gnome. Gnome itself was upgraded to 2.18.1 and Ubuntu followed right along. Quick testing indicates that Compiz is still regressed from the last upgrade, which is no big deal to me. Regular old 'flat' mode still works just fine, and I can live with that.
No, there's a bigger problem. When the system reboots networking does not automatically start.
One of the GPLv3's (GNU General Public License version 3) goals was be more compatible with other open-source licenses. There is some concern, however, that this goal has not been achieved in relation to the Apache License 2.
The fear, uncertainty and doubt surrounding Linux is still immense and it's purely through lack of education. If only people could see what's happening in the community they might change their tune. Here's why the FUD is misplaced.
Why Squid? Why only five minutes?
There are many great tools that Squid has to offer, but when I need to redirect http traffic to a caching server for performance increases or security, squid’s my pick. Squid has built in proxy and caching tools that are simple, yet effective.
There is a syndrome that has lately been plaguing the "Big 4" proprietary vendors.
I will call it the "Acquisition/Confusion Syndrome." It can be severely damaging, and anyone exposed to it is susceptible to infection.
The point of exposure occurs when a "Big 4" vendor acquires a smaller, focused start-up in the hopes of expanding their offerings to their customers.
The latest version of Opera's Web browser lets visitors see mini versions of their nine favorite sites at a glance. Click on any thumbnail to load the full site.
The Speed Dial feature also lets people access the site by typing its corresponding numeral -- 1 to 9 -- in the address bar.
"Speed Dial is a fresh way to call up the top sites you enjoy throughout the day."
IBM's DB2 has long been a Linux-friendly, cross-platform database. But as of this week, there will be improved coexistence between DB2 and the latest Ubuntu 6.06 Linux release.
The latest IBM database will now download and deploy easily from the Ubuntu desktop. If users want DB2, they can go to the download site, and Ubuntu automates the download and installs it.
Open-source security tools abound, so take advantage of them and avoid paying for commercial products if open source fits your needs. That was the message from Matthew Luallen, president of consulting firm Sph3r3, who spoke at the recent InfoSec Conference.
