About a month ago I first installed Kubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06) on one of my home office machines. I really liked it. Last week, I decided to ditch the old version of Mandriva I've been running for about 18 months on my primary machine, a Toshiba laptop, and give Kubuntu a try there too. This time using the latest version, 6.10, otherwise known as Edgy Eft.
Having been raised on DOS and the early generations of Windows, I rediscovered that sense of excitement in a pure computing experience when I first tried other Linux versions over the years. However, they required a steep learning curve and caused too much frustration with setup and obscure command-line options. Not so with Ubuntu Linux.
My friend and yours, AusImage, has tidied up the Ubuntu Open Week logs into this nice collection of formatted logs. There is some incredible content, help and tips in there about all aspects of contributing to Ubuntu.
Next April, the Ubuntu Foundation will complete three years and six releases of its GNU/Linux distribution. It will also be the point at which the project begins to acquire a distinctly commercial hue.
3 out of 4 of my computers run Ubuntu Linux. Breezy was all right, Dapper was great; when Edgy was released, I wondered, “Could it get any better?"
One of my blog readers ask me personally about which Ubuntu distribution that he should use, whether its Ubuntu 6.06 LTS or the latest release, Edgy Eft. As for my personal opinion, it depends on your own use.
Despite the fact that I work with the world’s best operating system (Mac OS X), I can’t help but want to try other operating systems when I have the chance. I’ve played with many a Linux distro in the past, but I decided to give Ubuntu a try on my 20″ Intel iMac despite the fact that I knew I wouldn’t be able to run it natively.
Michael Berger, a Linux/Unix System Engineer based in Knoxville, is organizing a Ubuntu Local Community Team (LoCo) in order to advocate and educate Linux users for the entire state of Tennessee about Ubuntu Linux and the Ubuntu "way." The focus will be on all derivatives of Ubuntu, including Edubuntu.
Today I had to install Ubuntu on one of the older machines in the computer room. It's a 1U server without CDROM drive.
I wanted to test JBoss performance with the Sun Microsystems new CoolThreads CPU so i ordered one from the Try&Buy deal a week ago.And today it arrived. Small pizza-box with absolutely no printed documentation included. First i had to spend several hours figuring out planning how to actually install Ubuntu on the damn machine, because it doesn't have video output, keyboard or mice connectors or CD/DVD players.
