Mark Shuttleworth is about to make history again. Four years ago, he became the second human in history to journey into space as a "tourist." Now, closer to home, he's expected to make a mark with the release of Ubuntu Dapper Drake, which may well challenge enterprise Linux frontrunners Red Hat and Novell and change the enterprise Linux landscape.
Sun has officially announced that Ubuntu Dapper Drake will run on its UltraSPARC T1 processor. With Canonical having said that Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long-Term Support) is to be the first corporate distribution in its short but eventful history, the announcement adds meat to its promise by taking Ubuntu into the data centre.

The cpio command is one of the most commonly used Linux back up tools. Unlike tar , in which the files to back up are typed in as part of the command, cpio reads the files to work with from the standard input (in other words, the screen).

I don't know if it's a joke or not. You be the judge.
Anyone who follows Linux closely knows that Ubuntu is the most popular community distribution. But, is that enough for Ubuntu to make a go of it as a commercial business distribution? It looks like we're going to get to find out.
One of the main reasons that I chose kubuntu over the more popular Ubuntu was the KDE base that it was built on. KDE, in my opinion, has one of the best free IDE available for it: KDevelop. KDevelop allows you to easily develop and deploy KDE applications. I decided to document the steps that I followed to get to a stage where I could compile and run a simple KDE application.
I decided to try out Linux again. A couple years ago I gave SUSE Linux a shot for the desktop, and it was not quite ready for primetime. Today I thought it would be fun to try Ubuntu and Kubuntu Linux (GNOME and KDE respectively). I could not remember which I liked better, so I gave them both a shot. My setup is a Fujitsu TabNote 4020d.

I've seen Ubuntu at the top of DistroWatch for some time. I've avoided it for the usual reasons: I don't know how to pronounce it, I didn't have a machine conveniently available to test it on, and so on.
"We believe software should be free to anyone. If you want to buy a support contract, it is there for you, [but] there is no premium version [of Ubuntu] that costs money," said Jane Silber, Canonical's chief operating officer.
