Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth's brainchild, has overcome another feat this morning with the advent of Ubuntu v6.04 (Dapper Drake) Flight 4. Dapper Drake Flight 4 is the fourth milestone release in a series of development builds with the release candidate coming out April of 2006. In addition to a host of new extras, the focus of our attention today is on its Xgl and Compiz capabilities.
Beta 4 finally made onto servers yesterday, and onto my machine today. It took some doing, I admit, but I have it installed. I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, and rather than make you wait til the end, I'll state up-front that there is no xgl included. Although rumor had it that was one of the reasons for the delay, the rpm packages needed are not included on the 5 cd set. They are still available from the factory tree repository, but don't expect any fancy screenshots for this "as installed" report.
Well, maybe not that bad. Actually, not "bad" at all: I have no real complaints about this book, but I didn't like it and can't imagine handing it to anyone with a hearty "Here, read this, you'll love it".
What I want to share with you today is a few of the things I've learned along the way to getting Mad Penguin to where it's at today. Currently it is in the top 8,000 sites on the Internet (out of 74+ million sites monitored by NetCraft as of February 2006), and it was all done on a $25.00 budget.
Welcome to the 0.5.11 release of Flock. We've got some new goodies since 0.4.10. Flock 0.5.11 imports your bookmarks, passwords, cookies, etc. from Firefox and other browsers. For each favorite, you can now choose to either store it online or keep it local.
Munin the tool surveys all your computers and remembers what it saw. It presents all the information in in graphs through a web interface. Its emphasis is on plug and play capabilities. After completing a installation a high number of monitoring plugins will be playing with no more effort. Using Munin you can easily monitor the performance of your computers, networks, SANs, and quite possibly applications as well.
Have you ever had to determine the virtual terminal that an X session is running on? Perhaps you may want this information for a program you have created.
For home users, free open-source software is the way to go.
This week we'll talk about Nvu (http://www.nvu.com), a free Web page editor that runs on Mac, Windows and Linux. It is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor - you don't have to write lines and lines of obscure code to create a Web page, even if it does help to understand raw HTML to get through some rough spots.
A bootable disk with Knoppix can be a lifesaver when your computer goes awry. In this feature, we guide you through the process of fixing Linux with Knoppix, which includes repairing boot issues, working with key system files, and working with Linux partitions.
Elive 0.4: "Serenity", featuring both Enlightenment 16 and 17, was released yesterday. "This version is a stabilization of 0.3, a better release with all bad things fixed, but also with many of new features; new installer, with more file systems supported and a cleaner installation." We tested last week's pre-4 and were disappointed in an inoperative harddrive installer. Did we have any better luck with the distribution release?
Mozilla Corp.'s lead engineer isn't worried about Microsoft's upcoming Internet Explorer 7, but instead is focusing on getting the next version of Firefox out the door.

This is a review of some of the most shiny work that has gone into the upcoming GNOME release.
Recent studies show Linux taking a large and growing share of the global data center market, as well as making incipient gains on the desktop. Traditional IT deployment, however, doesn't tell the whole Linux story -
