Ubuntu

Coming out on October 26, 2006 is the final release of Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft -- along with all of the Ubuntu derivatives. While it has only been six months since the belated release of Dapper Drake 6.06, Edgy Eft has shaped up very nicely. Here at Phoronix we have taken a look at the design advancements found in the Ubuntu 6.10 Release Candidate.

Upgrading to 6.10 from 6.06

6.06 is a superior OS to upgrade to 6.10 was a total disaster and !@$#!# my system and I lost EVERYTHING why not have a program/script to do a clean uninstall if 6.10 dosn't work it killed 'X' and ignored my Nvidea drivers that worked fine with 6.06. I tried this three times and each time it crashed I will waite to upgrade again. Ubuntu install clean saw everthing the printing was flawless rating out of 10 I give 6.06 a 12 I even deleted my Windows XP.

Thanks

In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Operating systems don't quite date back to the beginning of computing, but they go back far enough. Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
