=== Ubuntu Jaunty Alpha 4 released ===

Alpha 4 is the fourth in a series of milestone CD images that will be 
released throughout the Jaunty development cycle.  The Alpha images are 
known to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, 
while representing a very recent snapshot of Jaunty. You can download it 

  * Ubuntu: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/jaunty/alpha-4/
  * Edubuntu: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/releases/jaunty/alpha-4/
  * Kubuntu: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/jaunty/alpha-4/

See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors for a list of mirrors.

Pre-releases of Jaunty are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable 
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even 
frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers 
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

  * Software updates for testing: 
  * List of known bugs: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/jaunty/alpha4


=== Rock The Docs: The Ubuntu LoCo Docs Day ===

What exactly is LoCo Docs Day? In a nutshell, it is when the Ubuntu LoCo 
community comes together to refine, add to and otherwise improve our 
Online LoCo Documentation. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeams

We already have some excellent documentation, but much of it needs a new 
lick of paint and a good old fashioned refresh. As such, all the LoCo 
team are invited to come together on Feb. 12th to help make this happen. 
So, how do you get involved? Simple:

  * Save The Date! Put the 12th Feb 2009 in your calendar as the LoCo 
Docs Day.
  * On the day (or before if you want to join in the usual chit-chat) 
join the #ubuntu-locoteams IRC channel on Freenode.
  * Contribute some of your time and expertise going in and contributing 
content to the wide variety of documentation. If you are unsure of where 
to start, why not take a look at our LoCo FAQ and see there are any 
questions that you have had in the past that the document does not 
answer. We would all love to see the FAQ become a hugely authoritative 
document. There is a suggestion of other pages that need a refresh here.

Come out, share the fun, and get involved in helping to bring the LoCo 
Wiki Documentation up to date!


=== Hall of Fame interview: Christophe Sauthier ===

Christophe Sauthier (huats) is involved in various aspects of Ubuntu. He 
started helping out in the team doing French translations and among 
other things he maintained the French LoCo web site.  Now he is the 
French LoCo contact and the one they turn to in emergencies: 
affectionately referred to as "lé president". Christophe is a MOTU, and 
a driving force behind the MOTU Mentoring Reception. A YouTube video of 
Christophe speaking about himself is available here:

=== Fridge Calendar Has Moved ===

The old Fridge calendar has been replaced with a Google Calendar.

The new Fridge calendar is at http://fridge.ubuntu.com/calendar. Please 
update your RSS feeds.

Teams needing to add meeting or events to the calendar can now do so 
themselves. Please refer to: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fridge/Calendar 
there is a section on adding your meeting or event to the new calendar.


=== Ubuntu HugDay ===

HugDay is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together with a 
shared goal of triaging a specific package or set of packages. Working 
together allows the team to share knowledge and give some much needed 
assistance to the Ubuntu Developers.

  * When: Feb. 12nd, 2009
  * Location: IRC channel #ubuntu-bugs (freenode)
  * Help on bugs: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpingWithBugs/
  * Info page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/20090212

Anyone can help out reguardless of their skill level. This is a 
community effort to help the developers and make Ubuntu even better. Now 
is the time to get involved in terminating those pesky bugs.


=== New Contributing Developer ===

Nick Ellery (nellery) is now a Contributing Developer. Although Nick was an
Ubuntu Members already, it was decided to add him to the 
"universe-contributors" based on his good work in the MOTU team. Give 
Nick a warm welcome and congrats next time you speak to him. Launchpad:

=== Launchpad performance weeks ===

The purpose of Launchpad performance weeks is to improve the loading of 
Launchpad pages that currently take too much time to load or time out 
instead of loading. By reducing the soft and hard timeout times each 
month, the Launchpad team will be able to focus on those pages that need 
to be improved.  What it means to you is that you will see improved 
performance on the Launchpad site each month.

The first performance week took place last week. The next Launchpad 
Performance Week will be the week starting April 6th, with another 
starting June 1st. These dates may move depending on future schedules. 
Check the Launchpad News blog for corrections to the dates.

=== Canonical Survey Shows Ubuntu Server as Mission-Critical Enterprise 
Platform ===

Darryl K. Taft of eWeek reports that Canonical and analyst firm RedMonk 
have released the findings of a survey of thousands of Ubuntu users that 
show usage patterns for the Ubuntu server product. The survey, completed 
by nearly 7,000 respondents, shows that Ubuntu is being used in most 
common workloads, such as Web, file, database and mail server, and is 
considered "mission-critical" by most respondents. Steve George, 
director of support and services for Canonical, said the survey 
indicates not only that users are primarily using Ubuntu for such common 
workloads, but also that the security, backup and firewall areas are 
important workloads being run on Ubuntu. Users strongly indicated their 
intent to add Ubuntu servers to their data centers in the immediate and 
long term. "Clearly, we have businesses of all sizes using Ubuntu to run 
what they consider to be mission-critical applications," George said.


=== Survey Shows Ubuntu Not Just for Desktop Anymore ===

Elizabeth Montalbano of PC World tell us that Ubuntu should not be 
considered merely the desktop Linux distribution of choice anymore if a 
new survey conducted by Canonical and open-source analyst firm RedMonk 
is an indicator. The majority of nearly 7,000 businesses surveyed that 
are using Ubuntu Linux said they use it for a range of mission-critical 
workloads that are typically run on servers, such as proxy/caching, 
routing, mail security, clustering, virtualization, data backup and 
databases. Stephen O'Grady, analyst with RedMonk, said the range of 
applications for which companies are using Ubuntu will surprise some 
people. "The workload distribution is all over the map." He also said 
that while the survey covered more small businesses than enterprises, 
the size mix of companies surveyed was broad, and companies in all 
ranges reported using Ubuntu beyond the desktop. Link to the results: 


=== Sibyl Systems to Distribute Ubuntu Linux Exclusively ===

Sibyl Systems, a Central New York based IT solutions provider and 
subcontracting firm has announced that it will exclusively distribute 
Ubuntu for all its future linux deployments. Ubuntu was selected in 
large part because of the company's technical savvy and business acumen. 
The partnership will provide Canonical Ltd a local point of presence on 
the sales side, as well as hardware and software installation, service 
and support.John J Rice, president and lead engineer for Sibyl Systems 
states: "Canonical is a wonderful partner for us. This is a highly 
capable company with great integrity. They are dedicated, hardworking 
and they know their products inside and out. We look forward to 
exclusively working with them and to help them grow in the Syracuse area 
and north east US marketplace. Linux is the future of the desktop and 


=== The case for Ubuntu on the server ===

In this article Leigh Dyer of PC Authority weighs the pros and cons of 
whether Ubuntu has a future in server deployments. Dyer installed an 
Intrepid server to play with and is so far quite impressed. The 
installer is a nicely streamlined version of the Debian text-mode 
installer, and it lets you enable a number of specific profiles, like 
‘Visualization host' or ‘PostgreSQL server', that install extra 
functionality on top of the base packages. It's definitely still 
designed for experienced admins., there are no GUI packages on the CD, 
so regardless of what options you select, you'll be staring at a plain 
text login screen once your system boots.


== In The Blogosphere ==

=== Ubuntu Server Linux is for business ===

Blogger Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols talks to us about a survey that was 
conducted by Canonical and the research company RedMonk. According to 
the survey, Ubuntu Server Edition is being used for all the usual 
infrastructure and edge services you expect from a first class server 
operating system: Web, database, file, print, back-up and mail serving. 
He was suprised that larger companies with more than 1,000 employees 
were using Ubuntu in roles that he usually sees Red Hat and Novell SUSE. 
He even points out that Ubuntu is now powering Wikipedia. The Wikimedia 
Foundation recently announced that it was standardizing on Ubuntu across 
its farm of several hundred servers. According to Vaughan-Nichols 
Canonical has been working towards making Ubuntu a top server for some 
time, and that Canonical is quite serious about getting its share of the 
server market. He believes that with the results of the survey it should 
serve as a "notice" to all the other server systems out there that 
Ubuntu server is "here and it's ready to compete." 

=== Ubuntu developers visiting Ubuntu Berlin and c-base, plus interview 
with Mark Shuttleworth ===

Taking the opportunity brought about by the Jaunty Ubuntu Developer 
Sprint taking place in Berlin, the Ubuntu Berlin LoCo invited the 
developers and Mark Shuttleworth to a "night out".  Taking place at 
c-base, a mythical crashed extra-terrestrial vehicle that serves as the 
home for Ubuntu Berlin as well as a meeting place for other groups, it 
turned out to be a night to remember. Members of Ubuntu Berlin got to 
meet the developers in a relaxed atmosphere of smalltalk about space, 
canoing the c-base project “OpenMoon” (trying to send a rocket to the 
moon), and more. They also had an opportunity to interview Mark 
Shuttleworth and get his opinions on why he started Ubuntu, and how it 
compares to other methods of delivering software. The video interview of 
Mark is at the link. 

=== HP releases custom Netbook version of Ubuntu Linux ===

Blogger Andrew Nusca tells us about the HP mini 1000 Mi Edition which 
has a custom version of Ubuntu Linux installed on it. It's based off of 
Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron, and has most of the normal preloaded software 
installed, including: OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Thunderbird, Pidgin and 
more. It doesn't come preloaded with GIMP though. The GUI is where most 
of the changes come in. "When you first boot up the custom OS, you are 
greeted with a screen with a web search engine, a list of favorite web 
sites and shortcuts to your music and photos." Also included is a custom 
media player called HP Media Style which the blogger points out that it 
resembles Apple's FrontRow. Experienced Linux users can still get to the 
terminal window by hitting Alt+F2 and entering 'gnome-terminal'. He also 
points out that HP is has plans to post a utility on its website to 
allow users to create a system restore USB flash disk from Windows. It 
can already be done in Linux, and it can be used to turn an HP Mini 1000 
running Windows XP into a Mi Edition device. 

=== HP drops Linux netbooks in UK ===

Claudine Beaumont of the Telegraph points out that the UK will not have 
the privilege of using the HP version of Ubuntu on the HP Mini 1000. 
Hewlett Packard has pulled it from the UK.  This was a surprise to many 
in technology, since the lighter-weight Linux works better on the Atom 
processor and smaller storage available on such machines.  Also, ". . . 
as many technology websites have pointed out, the biggest-selling 
netbook in the UK is the Acer Aspire One – which runs a version of the 
Linux operating system."

=== First Ubuntu Event in Monastir Tunisia ===

Rafik reports on the personal initiative install fest held in Monastir, 
Tunisia on February 4 at the High Institute of Computer Sciences and 
Mathematics (ISIMM).  The dean of the school assisted them by making an 
amphitheater available for the event, and a banner was created, saying, 
"It's time to forget about Windows". Rafik was assisted in this event by 
Badii Mriga and Sabri Ben Dhaou.  Some students were unable to attend 
due to courses, and some were impatient and installed Ubuntu prior to 
the event.  Regardless, they had fun and look forward to holding a 
Jaunty Jackalop Release Party and install fest.

Also worth to note is the increased Nordic collaboration, between the 
Scandinavian countries, here's the highlights.

  * Started planning the first ever official danish Ubuntu bug jam.
  * The participants of the upcoming Ubuntu-DK podcast had their first 
RL meeting.
  * #ubuntu-nordic-dev @ freenode was created to get more nordic 
Ubunteros interested in Ubuntu developing and bug triaging (during the 
bug jam, we will also use the channel for real-time collaboration).

event in the region!)
    * many more visitors than 1 or 2 years ago at least knew Ubuntu or 
even used or tried it--this is good!

an ubuntu-be national meeting to exchange ideas between booth volunteers 
(who operate mostly regionally now)
  * computer fair in Antwerp
    * no official Ubuntu-be booth, but several Ubuntu-be members were 
there with another booth--e.g. one of their regional computer club--and

(Ubuntu, FOSS, etc.) and targeted presentations (C programming, 
visualization, etc.) for public present composed mainly by students and 
teachers. Also workshops concerning various subjects (daily use of 
Ubuntu, C programming, visualization, etc.) were assured by the LoCo 

Half a day was reserved for an Ubuntu 8.10 install party  where 
approximately hundred persons were present. Another half day was 
reserved for the continuation of the migration project of the ENIS 
Computing Center. The last two classrooms (30 PC) have been migrated to 
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. This makes a total of 12 classrooms of 180 PCs that 
have migrated from windows to Ubuntu. A group of our LoCo has assured 
the installation and configuration of an authentication server 
(OpenLDAP) to centralize the management of students accounts and assure 
that their data and documents will be accessible from all computing 
center classrooms. The photo album:
