Hallelujah! Linux on the desktop has finally arrived!
Or has it been here all along?
This week's mammothly hyped news that Dell would be shipping PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-loaded has been hailed by some as a momentous occasion for the Linux desktop. One might be tempted to think that no hardware vendor has ever offered Linux before.
Dell will not include open-source software such as Wine, which lets users run Windows programs on Linux, with the PCs it plans to bundle with Ubuntu Linux, Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Ubuntu and its commercial sponsor Canonical, said May 3.
Ubuntu Satanic Edition is now available for the amd64 architecture, so those of your with twice as many bits as anyone else can finally point your browsers to:
…and follow the standard installation procedure to join the rest of us in the underworld.
It came out earlier this week that Dell will soon offer computers running Linux instead of Windows. Not all of its machines, obviously — the company wants to stay in business — but Linux will be an option on at least two desktops and one laptop models.
ngo Molnar reviewed Con Kolivas's swap-prefetching patches suggesting that they were ready for inclusion in the mainline kernel, "I've reviewed it once again and in the !CONFIG_SWAP_PREFETCH case it's a clear NOP, while in the CONFIG_SWAP_PREFETCH=y case all the feedback i've seen so far was positive. Time to have this upstream and time for a desktop-oriented distro to pick it up."
Open source is nothing to be afraid of, according to Mozilla's chief executive officer.
Mitchell Baker, speaking at CeBIT Australia 2007 in Sydney earlier this week, destroyed the perception that open-source vendors were just ad hoc organisations. Baker claimed Mozilla was not "Frankenstein", dispelling notions that code is haphazardly thrown together in open-source development.
A Tory strategy to make more use of open source software in the public sector is likely to tackle the culture of secrecy in government procurement, according to early details released to The Register.
Now that we have open source beer, open source cars, and open source photography, a social networking service run by Red Hat and based around open source software comes as no surprise.

Pidgin 2.0, the latest version of the popular open source instant messaging client formerly known as Gaim, is now available for download. After months of development and numerous beta releases, Pidgin 2.0 is finally ready.A significant improvement over the current 1.5.x series, Pidgin 2.0 includes several compelling features and usability enhancements.
In the pantheon of controversial Microsoft comments CEO Steve Ballmer's quote this week about the Apple iPod: "There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance. It's a $500 subsidized item," ranks right up there.
The newest Netcraft Web server survey shows again a shrinking of Apaches market share. It is now at 56%, followed by Microsoft with more then 30%.
With the release of Ubuntu 7.04, aka Feisty Fawn, I naturally couldn't resist taking Kubuntu, my preferred Ubuntu version, for a quick spin on my trusty old Thinkpad testbed.
Here is a six-step process through which I speedily arrived at a highly usable, fully capable desktop Linux system. A comparison to my previous seven-distro Thinkpad exploit appears at the end.
