Ubuntu

You know a Linux distribution is becoming popular when it’s mentioned at the Fox News website, and there it was in a June 20 headline, ‘Ubuntu 6.06 Is Current Desktop-Linux Champ’. Of course, the story was courtesy eweek.com, but the fact that Fox cared is significant.

Open Source In Silicon Valley, alternative computing is easy

Filed under
OSS

A LOT OF tech types talk a good game about the high falutin' democratic principles of open source code, but it's what they do behind closed doors that really counts. And it's there that many well-meaning users balk at a commitment to what has traditionally been seen as an admirable but intimidating personal-computing path.

Reviews
Ubuntu

Ubuntu Linux 6.06 was delayed for several weeks to ensure that it was as good as it could be, then finally released on June 1. This version of Ubuntu was supposed to be "enterprise-ready" as a server and as a desktop, but unless businesses like dealing with multiple hardware issues, a substandard Java environment, and a lack of proprietary Web browser plugins, I can't see how Ubuntu Linux 6.06 is ready for anything except perhaps a patch release.
