Tribe 6 Milestone to Focus on Fixing Bugs instead

Following discussion with the QA, GNOME, Linux, installer and other teams we have decided not to make a formal release for Tribe 6, but rather to use it as a milestone for bugfixing.

If you are assigned bugs please make them your priority for the week, if you want to help please take a look at one of the unassigned bugs.

Fredericton, NB, Canada - A Ubuntu Get-Together

The folks in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada were happy to report that a get together organized by Richard Seguin and Cody A.W. Somerville on August 23rd was a success. A small group of Ubuntu members gathered at Reid's, a popular coffee shop, to discuss how they could promote a Ubuntu presence in the greater Fredericton area. You can expect to hear more in the upcoming months as they work to start a satellite Loco Team in their area.

In The Press

  • German Discounter selling low-price PCs for Office use with Ubuntu preinstalled - Ubuntu seems to attract more and more attention. The German Discounter Plus now offers Office-PCs with Ubuntu 7.04 preinstalled in some of their stores. As you may learn from the specs the PC is intended for office use only. The graphics card for example isn't that powerful but should be sufficient enough for normal office-use. The offer has been seen in the local stores of Kevelaer, Bonn, Cologne, Aachen, Neuss, Erftstadt,...

  • Mindbridge switches to Linux, saves "bunches of money" - Mindbridge didn't start out as an open source company -- far from it. "We had a predominantly Microsoft-oriented shop," says David Christian, Mindbridge CTO. But the company, which at the time offered an "intranet in a box" application, began hosting the software for its clients. "That required us to get a good handle on Linux, because Linux was the only inexpensive, cost-efficient way of handling that in a scaled environment," Christian says. "And I didn't want to add Microsoft to our customers' overhead." Today, Mindbridge has re-purposed itself as an open-source-friendly company, and revamped its infrastructure to run completely on Linux and other open source software. "Having deployed [Linux servers] to our customers, we turned around and said, we can do the same thing internally and save bunches of money. We began a systematic but slow flipping of servers from the Microsoft world over to predominantly Linux -- although there are a few BSD boxes around as well," Christian says. "It's to the point that today I only have two production Windows servers left, out of 15 or so."


  • Moving from Windows to Linux? Here's how to take the good stuff with you - So you're switching from Windows to Linux? Great. Like other users and organizations who've taken the plunge, it's likely you're making the move to take advantage of Linux's stability and reliance on open standards. Now all you have to do is prepare carefully for your move. In this case, careful prep means not just installing Linux on your system -- either on your existing computer or a whole new machine -- but also transferring your documents, bookmarks, preferences and system settings, and in some cases finding equivalent open-source applications for the Windows applications you were using before. Three Roads to Data Migration: 1.Let Ubuntu Linux do it for you. Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux distributions out there and, as of right now, the only major distribution that has migration tools built in as part of its setup process. 2.Use a third-party application. 3.Do it yourself. Whatever approach you take, the very first thing you should do before attempting a migration is make a full backup of any data that you can't replace.

  • Microwulf (Tiny Supercomputer) runs Ubuntu - In January 2007, two of us (professor Joel Adams and student Tim Brom) decided to build a personal, portable Beowulf cluster. Like a personal computer, the cost had to be low -- our budget was $2500 -- and its size had to be small enough to sit on a person's desk. For various reasons, we have been a Gentoo shop for a while. So it would seem fairly obvious that we would use Gentoo. But over time we had found Gentoo to be something of an administrative hassle. Since we wanted to keep Microwulf relatively simple (as simple as possible but not overly simple). and we had experience with Ubuntu, we decided to give that a try first. We installed Ubuntu Desktop on the head node. We used Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) as it was the latest stable release of Ubuntu at the time. It had a 2.6.17 kernel. It was a very easy installation except for one thing - the driver for the on-board NIC was not included in the kernel until 2.6.18. So for the first two months of Microwulf's young life, we used an alpha version of Ubuntu 7.04 (Fiesty) with had a 2.6.20 kernel and the drivers that we needed. 7.04 finally went stable in April, but we never had any trouble with the alpha version.

  • Mark Shuttleworth Talks On ATI's New Linux Drivers - What does Mark think about AMD's announcements this week with the 8.41 display driver and the just-announced program where AMD will be handing out specifications under NDA and helping out the open-source community? "I'm really pleased to see this announcement from ATI. Intel is to be congratulated on setting the pace, and ATI for showing that this approach can make sense in the consumer desktop space." There were initially some thoughts that the ATI fglrx 8.41 driver would end up making its way into the Ubuntu 7.10 default package set, however, that will not be the case. Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" is already in a feature freeze for its October release and this schedule does not allow the fglrx 8.41 driver to be included. The fglrx 8.41 also lacks FireGL workstation support and AIGLX support will not arrive until October in the fglrx 8.42 driver. However, Canonical will be looking at ways to make this fglrx driver available as an update once the driver has been released and tested. Alternatively, users of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn and Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon can just build the Ubuntu packages from ATI's official Linux installer. As would be expected, the new ATI driver will be included in the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS release known as "Hardy Heron". Mark also stated: "We do expect our next release, in April 2008, to have fully integrated ATI's new work. That will be an LTS release, with Long Term Support, so ATI's timing is excellent for enterprise customers considering Ubuntu desktop deployments in call centers or engineering labs."

  • On a Dutch news site, there is an article with complaints about Vista at an organization called Consumenten Bond which is similar to Consumer Reports. Most complaints are about hardware and software that's not functioning under Vista. "Consumers should only buy Vista if they know for sure their hardware and software will still work", is the advice of the "Consumenten Bond". The organization also advices buyers to look at alternatives like Apple's Mac OS x or Ubuntu Linux.


En La Blogósfera

  • Edubuntu al rescate nuevamente: por Christopher Dawson - Finalmente hoy tuve la oportunidad de conocer a nuestra nueva biblitecaria. Luego de estar sin un bibliotecario verdadero por tanto tiempo, fue muy interesante hablar con alguien que sabía algo más acerca de la investigación académica que buscar en Google. Ella incluso tenía una visión bastante diferente sobre como se debería administrar una biblioteca, los tipos de publicaciones periódicas que harán que los niños leean algo más que los artículos de My Space, y como hacer uso de toda la nueva tecnología que metemos en nuestra escuela. Mejor aún, ya estuvo buscando asociarse con la biblioteca local y con nuestro sistema regional de bibliotecas para ahorrar dinero en el software de administración de bibliotecas save money on library management software y sacar ventajas de las colecciones y base de datos a las que se tiene acceso. Cuando le pregunté como se sentía acerca de gastas un gran porción de su presupuesto en software comercial para bibliotecas como Follett’s Destiny, rn contra las soluciones de código abierto que requerián más trabajo pero son gratis/libres, ella dijo, “No tengo miedo en aprender nuevas cosas. Por qué no armas un sevidor con uno de los sistemas de código abierto y lo probamos". Aunque pude haber instalado cualquier distribución de Linux, es difícil equivocarse con Ubuntu, así que estoy instalando Edubuntu mientras escribo esto. Edubuntu viene ahora tiene un CD agregado, así como también, con una gran variedad de software que no encaja en la imagen de la distribución principal.
