Not long until Fedora and Ubuntu release their distress with Wayland instead of X.
I’m looking forward to it but my worry is with drivers. I like to use the proprietary drivers for the performance gains as I sometimes play 3D games and use 3D effects on the desktop.
Anyone else interested in Wayland and what it will bring?
Ubuntu have decided that after 6 years, its time to freshen up their image and try to shake off that Brown slur that has followed them for the past several years.
Here is a link to the page going through it: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Brand
Overall, it appears to be a good move, however, why move the buttons!? They were perfectly fine in the location they were. Just one step too far Ubuntu. Doh!
I ordered 20 Ubuntu 9.04 CD’s so that I could hand them around to whoever and on Monday of this week, they arrived.
Got a set of stickers too which I think is normal for what they send out. Funky design for the CD’s though, better then past designs.
The Ubuntu forum now has an announcement on its front page:
The Ubuntu Forums have grown tremendously over the years. While we regret that we are discontinuing our Other OS Talk category, this gives us an opportunity to help other Linux distributions grow by directing traffic to the websites of these distributions.
Here is a list of the official websites for the operating systems that used to have individual forums here. We hope you are able to find further assistance from there.
* Fedora/Red Hat
And finally, if you haven’t yet found what you are looking for, we suggest you look for information on the DistroWatch website or you might try the multi-distribution LinuxQuestions forum.
This makes sense, but some people may feel a little lost now as the Ubuntu Forums have often been heralded as a great source for support. Will this move more people over to Ubuntu?
