<tuxmann> UBUNTU NEWS
<tuxmann> over to Dazed_75 for the news!
<Dazed_75> NOTE: I am trying something new this week in order to reduce the size of these emails and postings and to lessen the typing to create them.  Historically I list a title for each subject followed by one or more article links indented with a TAB character.  Since most links these days actually list out a fairly readable title for the article(s), I am going to try just listing the link unless the link is totally inscrutable.  Let me know
<Dazed_75>  what you think.
<Dazed_75> 8-way desktop comparison on Ubuntu 13.10 Linux (no, they apparently can't count)
