Put your sleuthing caps on dear readers, we've got a new case for you. A blurry video has surfaced of a Sony Ericsson P990i running a mobile version of Ubuntu. With the aid of a soldering gun and "special software," someone by the name of Wizolabo seems to have produced a working copy of the favored Linux distro running on the favored SE superphone.
DUAL-BOOTING Ubunto and Windows XP over six weeks gives a great insight into the strength's and weaknesses of the two operating systems.
So far most of the "is Linux ready for the desktop" reviews I have done have focused on the problems of installing the beast. However once it is installed and configured it is easy to see how much ground Ubunto has cut from under XP.
This feature includes various hacks to boost Ubuntu's performance, such as viewing running processes, identifying resources, finding process startups, tuning kernel parameters, and speeding up boot time. This is a complete chapter in the ExtremeTech book "Hacking Ubuntu: Serious Hacks Mods And Cusomtizations."
Always colorful with its names, Canonical has birthed the server, desktop and education versions of its "Feisty Fawn" Ubuntu Linux.
In its blasé form, the new version of Linux ships as Ubuntu 7.04 Server Edition, Desktop Edition and Edubuntu. The OS falls under Canonical's short-term, 18-month maintenance program, as opposed to the "Dapper Drake" 6.04 release, which enjoys five year support.
For Linux business users, the most important Linux release of 2007 so far is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. But for most other Linux fans, the upcoming release of Ubuntu Version 7.04 on April 19 demands more attention.
The Ubuntu version of Linux is getting more virtualization-friendly, but in a different way than its top rivals.

Ubuntu 7.04 - Feisty Fawn's New Features
Over two weeks in the making...
Look for Issue #1 towards the end of May.
I’m currently running the development version of Ubuntu, codenamed Feisty. The final version was planned to be released on April 19th, but this might change since the RC has already been postponed.
There seems to be no official announcement what exactly causes the delay, but I have some ideas, because there are some problems I’m currently experiencing myself:
I would take a break from the regular broadband bashing and instead focus on the new imminent release of Ubuntu Linux, code named as Feisty Fawn. With cutting edge software, Ubuntu’s version promises to be better than ever before by incorporating huge support for Wireless networking cards, on demand installation of codecs and Windows migration tools.
In my quest for the ideal computing experience, Ubuntu is the winner. I’ve been switching between Windows XP, Windows Vista and Ubuntu [Feisty Fawn]; all in all, Ubuntu takes the cake for many reasons. If you are interesting in learning more about Linux then continue reading.
I have an older G4 eMac with 512Mb RAM. I upgraded the CD-Rom to a DVD burner and am installing Feisty on it. I did however run into issues just getting to the install. Here are the steps I followed to get a successful install started from the Live CD.
1. Download the ISO from here. (I grabbed the one labeled “Mac (PowerPC) and IBM-PPC (POWER5) desktop CD “).

What a perfect day. I'm in London today, and went to the Arsenal vs. Bolton match with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu. Mark isn't a big football fan, but he indulged my Arsenal fixation and even treated me like a rational human being, which I decidedly am not when it comes to football. Arsenal won 2-1. All is right in the universe.
The updates keep coming in at a steady rate every day. They range anywhere from 20 to 40 packages/update on a given day. It will be interesting to see what is finally touched up and cleaned up for the April 19th official release of 7.04.
Some good news: The display problem with the NetworkManager was fixed with today's updates. It now displays the state of the underlying networking system.
A week or two ago I was at Frys and came across The Official Ubuntu Book. I've heard a lot about this flavor of Linux lately and thought it was high time I started working with it.
As you may have heard, Ubuntu 7.04, aka "Feisty Fawn", won't be out on schedule. The release candidate, originally scheduled for Thursday, has been delayed due to bugs with PATA handling. In the meantime, users can upgrade from version 6.10 "Edgy Eft" by editing /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing all instances of "edgy" with "feisty", and doing an upgrade with Synaptic or "update-manager -c".
My last article on the experiences of moving from Windows to Kubuntu Linux brought out the best and the worst of the Linux community judging by some of the responses it received.
This guide shows how to install three different Internet Explorer versions (6.0, 5.5, and 5.0) on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, Edgy Eft and Dapper Drake desktops. This is good for people such as web designers who have switched to Linux but still need to test their web sites in Internet Explorer.
Hands up all PC users who have a wireless mouse and keyboard?
In the usual announcement to the Ubuntu developer list Ubuntu founder Mark Suttleworth this morning announced the name of the next Ubuntu release plus one, due out in October 2007: Gutsy Gibbon.
Gutsy will follow Feisty Fawn due for release on April 19.
But, more interestingly, Shuttleworth also talked of a new ultra-free version of Ubuntu that can be expected alongside Gutsy Gibbon.
