=== Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase competition ===

It's time, once again, for Free Culture artists to have the opportunity to
have their work presented in the latest upcoming release, Karmic Koala.
How it works is simple:

 * Your submission must be no larger than 1MB for audio, 2.5MB for video and
0.5MB for photo/graphic.
 * Upload your submission somewhere online (there are lots of free hosting
solutions available such as archive.org). Do not email any of the organisers
or judges with your submissions.
 * Add your entry to one of the tables on the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase
wiki page.
 * When the deadline for submissions closes, our panel of judges (to be
determined) will pick a shortlist, and the Community Council will then pick
the final winners from the shortlist.

The deadline for submissions is 16 July 2009.

=== 3 New Members of the Americas Region Membership Board ===

The Ubuntu Community Council has voted to add three new members to the
Americas Membership Regional Board:  Nick Ali, Greg Grossmeier, Martin
Albisetti.  All three are well known and respected in the Ubuntu community.
Congratulations to all three of them.

=== Bootchart testing for UNR ===

The Ubuntu-mobile team is looking for volunteers to help with testing for
Karmic Koala.  This involves testing the boot time of the alpha and beta
releases for Ubuntu 9.10, based on the milestone pre-releases.  The work
isn't difficult, and is explained at links provided.  Anyone with a netbook
computer is welcome to help.  See more at:

=== Empathy to replace Pidgin in Karmic Koala ===

As was noted in the Ubuntu Forums, it was decided at UDS that Empathy would
replace Pidgin as the default Instant Messaging application in Ubuntu 9.10.
Pidgin would still remain in the main repository for at least another
cycle.  The idea, as reported in the Communication Section of the Desktop
Specs[1] is to make the switch early in the Karmic cycle and get feedback
from users, and eventually make the decision whether to complete the switch
or hold it until after the next LTS.


=== Ubuntu Global Jam 2nd - 4th October 2009 ===

The new Ubuntu Global Jam has been expanded.  In UDS it was decided to
increase the scope of the Jam beyond just bugs, to include:
 * Bugs - finding, triaging and fixing bugs.
 * Testing - testing the new release and reporting your feedback.
 * Documentation - writing documentation about how to use Ubuntu and how to
join the community.
 * Translations - translating Ubuntu and helping to make it available in
everyone’s local language.

This Global Jam has been scheduled for 2nd - 4th October 2009.

=== New freenode webchat (and why to use it) ===

Freenode has decided to no longer allow Mibbit access to freenode, due to
the amount of staff time required to correct abuse from that application.
Instead, they have engaged their own web gateway using qwebirc, an
application developed and used on quakenet.  Instructions on how to include
it in your site can be found by clicking the icon in the upper left corner
of the entry portal to the webchat[1].

=== Fit-PC2: Ubuntu Desktop In A Tiny Box ===

Rob Reilly of Linux.com tells us that he has been working with the Plug
Computer for a while now and has first hand experience with the diminutive
size of the current crop of nano Linux machines. The latest Compulab Fit-PC2
offering carries on that fine tradition of micro-miniaturization. The
Fit-PC2 has an Intel Atom Z530 processor running at 1.6 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, an
Intel GMA500 graphics chipset with hardware acceleration and a 160 GB SATA
drive. It also sports Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11g wifi, 6 USB 2.0 ports, and
runs on 12 volts at 1.5 amps. Since this machine has a full Ubuntu desktop
installation, thumbing through the menus was easy, and Reilly found all the
usual productivity tools. Version 3.0.8 Firefox and Thunderbird (v. were there. OpenOffice.org Writer, Calc, Impress, and Draw were
available. It is an innovative product with a good combination of size,
horsepower, and cost, and Reilly says he's anxious to see where Compulab
takes this market.

=== Canonical to boost Ubuntu usability by tackling "papercuts" ===

ARS Technica's Ryan Paul reports that Canonical, the company behind the
popular Ubuntu Linux distribution, is launching a new project to improve the
usability of the platform. The developers aim to identify and resolve 100
minor bugs that negatively impact the Ubuntu user experience before the
release of the next major version in October. The initiative, which is
called One Hundred Paper Cuts, will be implemented by Canonical's new design
and user experience team in collaboration with the Ubuntu community. David
Siegel, developer of the popular GNOME-Do launcher who recently joined
Canonical as part of the user experience and design team commented in his
blog, "If some small usability detail has been bothering you release after
release, now is your chance to step up and get it the attention it deserves.
If we can find and heal one hundred paper cuts, Ubuntu 9.10 will surely be
the most usable release of Ubuntu yet."

=== Canonical to Certify Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition on HP ProLiant G6 ===

Darryl K. Taft of eWeek.com tells us that Canonical is expected to announce
a collaboration with Hewlett-Packard to deliver an additional
high-performance server configuration for Ubuntu users. Canonical will
announce on June 17th the certification of Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition on
HP's new ProLiant G6 servers. This move will extend Canonical's support of
Ubuntu Server Edition on the HP ProLiant servers to 17 configurations. HP
officials said the HP ProLiant G6 servers deliver a combination of high
performance and energy efficiency. "We are committed to certifying Ubuntu
Server Edition on the hardware platforms that our users choose to run,"
Steve George, director of commercial services at Canonical, said in a
statement. "HP ProLiant servers are easily one of the most popular of those
platforms, so it is heartening to have HP's participation in this
certification program along with its recognition and verification of our
work. Users who are looking for an open platform or thinking about building
a cloud-based infrastructure on Ubuntu need the reassurance of strong,
compatibility-tested hardware. This certification offers peace of mind along
with a great hardware base on which users can start to build their new data

=== Karmic Koala To Offer More Diverse Wallpaper Selection ===

The Linux Loop says that the tradition in Ubuntu seems to be to include one
or two versions of the default wallpaper and call it done. Meanwhile,
Windows 7 has a vast array of wallpapers of every type: abstract, landscape,
animals, flowers, green hills with a blue sky, etc. In Karmic Koala (9.10),
though, Ubuntu seems to be shifting more towards the Windows 7 style. A page
has been setup on the Wiki for people to contribute artwork in three
categories: default wallpaper, abstract extras, and photographic extras. The
plan is apparently to offer, in addition to the default wallpaper, a
selection of more diverse alternative wallpapers, including photographs,
which is a first for Ubuntu. This change is quite exciting, since it makes
it really simple for Ubuntu users to find a wallpaper they like. It’s almost
impossible to find one wallpaper everyone likes, but finding a wallpaper for
everyone in a selection of 20 might be possible.

=== One Hundred Papercuts: The Most Exciting Thing Since the Last Thing
Canonical Did ===

The Linux Loop asks if we remember when Mark Shuttleworth announced
Canonical was putting together a usability and design team? That team has
announced their first major project called One Hundred Papercuts. The idea,
as described by David Siegel, is to select one hundred easily fixable bugs
that are day to day minor annoyances to the user and fix them for the next
release. Not big changes, just small things like how a file is named by
default or where the cursor’s focus is put. That might not sound like a big
deal, but fixing one hundred little things is far more important than
introducing a big new feature at this stage of Ubuntu’s development. Every
release fixes some bugs, but Ubuntu will be the first distribution that the
Linux Loop knows of to make fixing usability related bugs a major priority,
and they certainly hope this will become a trend.

=== Ubuntu's First Ten Paper Cuts Spotted ===

Phoronix's Michael Larabel reports that with the release of Ubuntu 9.10,
which is due out this October, Canonical and the Ubuntu developers hope to
fix at least 100 "paper cuts" on the Ubuntu Linux desktop. The first ten of
the one hundred paper cuts for Ubuntu 9.10 have now been determined and are
shared on the Ubuntu development list. Making up this list of ten small
Linux desktop imperfections are dimming file icons when you "cut" them for
"pasting" later on, changing the "move to trash" text string in the Nautilus
CD burner to "remove from disc", icons for XDG user directories, consistent
volume "safe to remove" notifications, and other small action items. Besides
addressing these small usability gaps in Ubuntu 9.10, the Karmic Koala will
also feature the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, will finally switch to using kernel
mode-setting (where available) for graphics support, GRUB2 is being used by
default, EXT4 is now the default file-system choice, and there are many
other improvements too.

=== ZaReason Ion Breeze 3770 ===

Michael Larabel of Phoronix tells us that last week they published an
in-depth article looking at the NVIDIA ION Linux Performance using a nettop
device that contained this chipset with GeForce 9400M graphics rather than
the usual Intel 945 graphics. From video playback to 2D to 3D, the graphics
performance with the NVIDIA ION was wonderful. For that testing, the nettop
they were using came courtesy of ZaReason and it was their new Ion Breeze
3770. The ZaReason Ion Breeze 3770 consists of an Intel Atom 230 processor,
a NVIDIA ION chipset, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics, and it can also ship
with Ubuntu 9.04, Kubuntu 9.04, Edubuntu 9.04, or Ubuntu Studio 9.04. While
this is the first NVIDIA ION nettop that Phoronix has tested under Linux,
they were left being quite pleased with the Ion Breeze 3770. When using the
proprietary Linux driver from NVIDIA, the GeForce 9400M GPU works great with
an Intel Atom processor, delivers excellent video playback capabilities and
is able to even run some games.

=== Ubuntu 8.04 update: Happy to be back in a Linux environment ===

InsideSoCal.com's Steven Rosenberg says he's been bringing more data into
his main Ubuntu 8.04 LTS installation on one of his two Toshiba Satellite
1100-S101 laptops, and he continues to be satisfied with the performance of
what by most accounts is the world's most popular desktop Linux
distribution. Rosenberg says that all in all, he's pretty happy to be back
using Linux after his six months with OpenBSD. While he enjoyed using
OpenBSD very much, returning to the easier-to-use and much-easier-to-update
Ubuntu/Debian environment has been a very good thing.

=== Ubuntu a minor player? Not outside the States ===

Christopher Dawson of ZDNet Education says he just finished reading Dana
Blankenhorn’s post, “Will Ubuntu remain a minor player” on a break between
interviews and meetings. Interestingly, just before he read Blankenhorn’s
post, Dawson met with the President of Metasys, a Brazilian company that has
Linux-based servers, desktops, and software in thousands of schools,
businesses, and homes throughout Latin America, Africa, and Europe. Metasys
is running on 350,000 desktops in Brazil alone, and guess what? People pay
for it because it’s good; it has a great ecosystem of server, software, and
management products; and because it’s still drastically cheaper than
Windows. Worldwide, there are 13 million active Ubuntu users with use
growing faster than any other distribution. In China, Ubuntu is gaining
traction quickly since, due to rampant piracy, Windows is essentially free
in that country. New users are choosing operating systems based on merit
rather than price, since price is largely irrelevant in that market. As
companies like HP and Dell continue to legitimize Ubuntu through
high-quality offerings on their netbooks, Dawson thinks we’ll see a shift
here in the States. http://education.zdnet.com/?p=2709

=== 1/10th of 100 Papercuts Selected ===

The Linux Loop reports that Ubuntu’s One Hundred Papercuts project is aiming
to solve 10 papercuts per week in order to accomplish the goal of resolving
100 before the next release. The first ten bugs to be tackled have been set.
In follow-up discussion on the mailinglist, however, some of the selected
bugs were removed, since they didn’t fit the definition of a papercut. In
accordance with the definition of a papercut, none of these bugs are going
to change anyone’s life. Any Ubuntu user will, however, notice these
improvements. For example, when you cut a file or folder, the file/folder
will be greyed out to indicate that it has been cut. You’ll also see
improvements to the Open With… menu and changes to the size of
notifications. Alone, none of these fixes would be note-worthy, but together
they may be the most significant feature of the next release. Keep in mind
that most of these bugs have not been fixed, but if everything goes
according to plan, they will be in the next week.

== In The Blogosphere ==

=== 13 things to get excited for in Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala ===

Blogger Danny Piccirillo from Pin Stack blogs about what he's excited for in
Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. In his list of things he is excited for are: New
Theme, Flawless PulseAudio, Firefox 3.5, faster boot times, Ext4 now
default, GNU GRUB 2, New Linux Kernel, New Intel Drivers, New NVIDIA
drivers, GNOME 2.28 (and testing GNOME 3), PackageKit, and Empathy. He gives
a short description of each of these, and gives why he believes the change
from pidgin and ekiga to empathy is a good thing.

=== HP is business Linux friendly ===

Blogger Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols from ComputerWorld informs us of the
progress that has been made with HP. With the announcment of Ubuntu being
certified for the new HP ProLiant G6 servers. He looks at this as a good
step towards HP recognising the work that has gone into Ubuntu, and possibly
opening up to becoming as Linux consumer end-user friendly as Dell.

=== HP Servers and Ubuntu: Reading Between the Lines ===

Blogger Joe Panettieri from WorksWithU helps us look beyond HP and
Canonical's announcment of Ubuntu certification on HP ProLiant G6 servers.
He sees this as HP beta testing the Ubuntu server market, and expects HP to
start preloading Ubuntu on ProLiant systems. We are also given some
information to help us understand the competition. He doesnt think that
trying to migrate Novell SUSE Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers
to Ubuntu server is a good idea. This is because Ubuntu can't match Novell
or Red Hat on the ISV front. We are informed that focus on the appliance
market, and giving people an option to go to other than windows is a good

=== IBM’s Cloud Will Feature Ubuntu ===

WorksWithU's Joe Panettieri says that when IBM announces its Smart Business
cloud computing strategy on June 16, Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux distribution
will be along for the ride. The news represents IBM’s latest vote of
confidence in Ubuntu, amid growing evidence that Canonical and Ubuntu are
finding a home in cloud computing. News of IBM’s cloud effort broke in The
New York Times on June 15. The Times story didn’t mention Ubuntu, but the
blogosphere is talking up IBM’s growing interest in Canonical’s operating
system. Panettieri says he's not suggesting Ubuntu can dominate
next-generation cloud infrastructure, but Canonical is in the cloud game and
IBM will reinforce that fact on June 16.

=== Microsoft, Ubuntu and Social Networking ===

Christopher Tozzi of WorksWithU notes that like many multinational
corporations, Microsoft has embraced social networking as a means of making
customers feel like participants, not just end users, in a Microsoft
community. When it comes to community-building, however, Microsoft is
fighting an uphill battle against the open-source world, which was built
around social networking before it was called social networking. Ubuntu
doesn’t have an official presence on Facebook, Twitter or similar sites.
Even the Ubuntu forums, arguably the hub of the Ubuntu community, are a
third-party project. Ubuntu hasn’t embraced prepackaged social networks
because it doesn’t need to. Unlike the superficial user communities
constructed by Microsoft’s PR department, Ubuntu’s users necessarily and
authentically participate in Ubuntu as more than customers. Granted, there’s
a lot more to an operating system’s success than the number of users who
feel like they participate rather than merely consume. Nonetheless, the
social network built into the Ubuntu experience is a strong tool that should
be put to use by those seeking to promote the operating system.

=== Dropbox vs Ubuntu-One ===

Blogger L4Linux says that his request for using Ubuntu-One Beta was approved
by Canonical, so he immediately made a small (and admittedly un-scientific)
test. He put 13 files, totaling 23.4MB, first in Ubuntu-One and then in
Dropbox. It took 5 minutes 56 seconds for Ubuntu-One and 4 minutes 25
seconds for Dropbox on his ADSL line to synchronize the files. For the time
being, Dropbox is faster. Furthermore it has the significant advantage of
being cross-platform, while Ubuntu-One works only in Ubuntu. L4Linux says he
uses Ubuntu both at home and work, but he also uses Fedora and rarely
Windows and moreover he want to share files with people that don't use
Ubuntu. He questions, "What's the point of having files in the cloud if you
can't access them from every available platform?" L4Linux thinks that
Ubuntu-One's speed will probably get better in the future, but unless
Canonical makes it cross platform he really doesn't see anyone using it
much. http://yatsite.blogspot.com/2009/06/dropbox-vs-ubuntu-one.html

=== Ubuntu Improves User Experience Via “Paper Cut” Campaign ===

WorksWithU's Christopher Tozzi reports that Ubuntu developers recently
announced their intention to fix a number of minor but noticeable usability
bugs, which they’ve termed “Paper Cuts,” in time for the release of Ubuntu
9.10 next October.  This is a huge step in the right direction for Ubuntu,
and reflects the kind of usability-oriented thinking that is central to
making it a success. The ten bugs slated for correction so far mostly
involve ambiguous user dialogues or interface inconsistencies.  None of them
on its own is enough to turn someone off to Ubuntu, but added up, they
detract substantially from the Ubuntu experience. Additional bugs that have
been identified as potential targets for the paper-cut campaign similarly
represent seemingly trivial issues that, together, negatively impact the
smoothness and professionalism of Ubuntu.

=== Using Ubuntu as your sole operating system in academia ===

The EdTechDev blogger says he's been using Ubuntu Linux as his sole
operating system for two years now. The switch was completely painless as he
had already been using the same software, such as OpenOffice, Firefox, VLC,
Pidgin, Netbeans, Eclipse, JEdit, Inkscape, and Gimp on Windows and the Mac
for years. The only reasons he's still booting to Windows on occasional is
to make screencasts that show how to do things in Windows (which most of his
students are using), and also to use the Wimba whiteboard/chat application
that his university uses.

== In Other News ==

=== Reconstructor - Version 3.0 Tech Preview ===

Reconstructor is an Ubuntu GNU/Linux CD Creator that uses the Desktop(Live),
Alternate(Install), or Server disc as a base, and then allows for user
customization. For the Ubuntu Desktop base, you can customize the entire
environment where you can add or remove software, change the default look
(splash, themes, fonts, wallpaper, etc.), add desktop links, etc. For the
Alternate and Server bases, you can add any additional software to the disc
that you would like installed. Reconstructor is written in python and is
licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
