Walau terlambat, gak apa-apa kan?
Distro yang satu ini memang fenomenal. Liat saja komentar dari Distrowatch ini.
“DistroWatch itself saw unprecedented levels of traffic on the day of the Ubuntu 7.04 release. Our main index page received more than 140,000 views in the 24-hour period (from midnight to midnight UCT) on Thursday, which is about 40% more than it would get on an ordinary working day. The Ubuntu page was accessed more than 22,000 times within the first two days after the release (contrast that with Mandriva Linux, whose page only received 6,700 visits within the first two days after the release of 2007.1 earlier in the week). Even Ubuntu developers were astonished by the sheer amount of interest in the new release: Melissa Draper reported that more than 1,500 users were logged in to the main Ubuntu IRC channel on the day of release, while Kevin Kubasik was amazed to see almost 4,000 people seeding the CD image on the BitTorrent network the next day.”
Ayo download , atau pesan via layanan gratis shipit atau melalui para penyedia DVD Ubuntu di Indonesia.

Who said linux is not for artist ? Read what Professor Gurdy Leete did on Department of Art and Design at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.
Check also his other web page. Nice to see linux used by artist :).
…I found that Photoshop and the other proprietary software packages we had been using for years generally had more polished interfaces and more advanced features than the free software we chose. But the free software had more than enough of the core capabilities we needed in my classes, and also often featured desirable capabilities missing in the proprietary software.
The switch saved thousands of dollars in software upgrades. As a result I was able to dramatically lower the lab fee for each class, and require instead that the students purchase additional textbooks. These textbooks enriched the class experience, yet the overall cost to each student was significantly less, which they appreciated. …

People talked about Fedora Core 5 released. But no info on the official site.
Perhaps some issue related with non GPL kernel module ?
Many Fedora users are anxiously waiting for the Fedora Core 5 release, scheduled for Monday, March 20. Be warned that some of you may have to wait a little longer, however: the kernel shipped with FC5 effectively disallows the loading of any non-GPL modules. That behavior was a mistake, and a fix has already been made, but it is too late to get that fix into the initial FC5 release. So binary module users will want to wait until the first errata kernel is released (a few days, at most) before upgrading.
Here some info about the iso :
(bussy at these time !!!)
Other iso file name : FC-5-i386-disc1.iso, FC-5-i386-disc2.iso, FC-5-i386-disc3.iso, FC-5-i386-disc4.iso, FC-5-i386-disc5.iso, FC-5-i386-rescuecd.iso.

Gael Duval, creator of Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva Linux), has been fired from the company. The information leaked on the Mandriva forums, and Duval later confirmed it on his own webpage. He says: “Since the information has leaked, I will post a message in the next few days on this website about why this is the end of the Mandriva story for me, and what’s next.” Since Mandrake was for many the first distribution they ever tried, I think it is only fair to thank him for creating Mandrake, and to wish him the best of luck in any following endeavours.

Have Palm Treo 650 or Palm LifeDrive ?
If you want, you can install linux on them (even Treo just boot at this moment).
Installing linux on Treo 650
Mastracci says his Treo Linux port should ultimately be able to control both the GSM and CDMA radios in the Treo, meaning that phone and Internet access functions may still be usable under Linux. The Linux firmware currently loads in memory, and uses an SD card for storage, making it possible to easily revert to the phone’s native Palm OS after hacking sessions.
Installing linux on LifeDrive.
Alex Osborne’s LifeDrive project appears to be further along, with a full graphical QPE environment successfully ported to the device, and about half of the device’s peripherals operational
