== LoCo News ==

=== Chis,ina(u Jaunty Release Party ===

The Ubuntu Moldavian community held an Ubuntu Party at Chis,ina(u, 
Moldova. The party was driven by LMZ, with presentations about Ubuntu, 
OpenStreetMap, and Ubuntu Romania ( and it's path to a LoCo ). Stas 
Sushkov informs us about the local interest in Ubuntu, and looks forward 
to forming an Ubuntu LoCo in the near future. [[

=== Ubuntu-ZA LoCo discs have arrived ===

With the increasing number of requests for Jaunty CDs, Ubuntu-ZA's 
Johnathan Carter informs us that;
"This time round we allocated all of the CD’s to our members via our 
wiki, initially I thought that 250 discs wouldn’t be enough, but there’s 
enough so that every one who requested CD’s could get, we just had to 
trim down a few requests here and there. Allocating the discs before 
hand works quite well, next time we’ll have even more structure, perhaps 
our own little shipit-like web application where people can choose their 
region and a contact person who it can be sent to..."

=== The way to a new party for Jaunty Jackalope ===

Nicolas ( kalon33 ) announces the new party which is cooking at Bordeaux 
on May 23rd. For the fifth edition, this time helped by the ABUL[1], The 
Giroll lug [2] perpetuates the tradition of cheerfulness which has made 
the reputation of its parties. It's also the time to be a little bit 
more ambitious, a little bit more one year before the Software Libre 
Meeting (a.k.a. RMLL) 2010 which will be held in our nice town of 
Bordeaux. In fact, this time we hope doing more stuff like Ubuntu 
discovery, Gaming using Linux... But keeping our webradio (see previous 
posts), our Free lunch (free as "Libre", as we also share cooking 
recipes of the meals we share at this lunch) and our Install Party.
Starting around 10am at the ECM Saint-Pierre [3] and the event will go 
late ( last years event finished around 2am ). <<BR>> The extended 
program can be seen here:

== Launchpad News ==

=== What's a build score then? ===

Matthew Revell has posted the definition as well as links to further 
information. His definition is that the build score is the priority that 
Launchpad assigns to a particular build job. When you upload a source 
package, Launchpad looks at:

* the target component
* the target pocket
* source urgency — defined by the packager
* time since upload to the queue
* whether the package is destined for a public or private PPA.

A further explanation can be seen at 
https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/BuildScores , and supporting links 
are to be found in his posting.

=== Michael Rooney: Counting the number of Ubuntu users ===

Michael Rooney suggests storing hashes of IP addresses that hit 
Canonical's update site, and looking at the number of unique ones each 
week/month in order to estimate the number of Ubuntu users.

He states that this method will not work for people using mirrors, 
multiple Ubuntu machines under the same IP, and and computers that are 
updated on a yearly basis. However, he feels that this is a small 
percent to lose to at least get something in the right magnitude.

Alternatively, if Google would release their numbers for browsers 
hitting google.com, we would probably have a solid idea as well.

=== Dustin Kirkland: byobu 2.0 released ===

After 54 mini-releases, Dustin Kirkland is finally releasing version 
2.0. This new version brings more stability, new features, and better 
performance than previous versions. It is also now ready for general usage.

This release also renames the project from 'screen-profiles' to 'byobu', 
a Japanese term for decorative, multi-panel screens that serve as 
folding room dividers.

His goal for Byobu is to enhance the experience and usability of screen, 
and the command line in general.

Some goals for the byobu 2.x series are:
* Additional toggle-able status items in the bottom status panel
* Detailed callouts for each status item
* Better interaction with various terminals
* Additional keybinding sets
* Configurable support for external notifiers, like notify-osd
* Internationalization of the text

All important links have been updated:
* https://launchpad.net/byobu
* https://launchpad.net/~byobu/+archive/ppa
* irc://irc.freenode.net/#byobu
* bzr branch lp:byobu

Updated packages will appear in the repositories shortly.

=== The 14 best Linux Distros ===

Neil Bothwick of TechRadar reviews the fourteen best Linux 
distributions. Bothwick lists Ubuntu as "The most popular distro of all 
time... So far", and he says what appeals about Ubuntu so much is that 
it 'just works'. "You click the installer icon, answer a couple of 
questions and it takes care of the rest for you." He further notes that 
hardware detection is good, and it handled everything on the test laptop 
including the webcam that googling had indicated didn't work with Linux. 
Bothwick's list of reasons to use Ubuntu includes Ubunutu's simple, 
straightforward interface, Ubuntu's frequent and easy updates, and 
Ubuntu's strong developer and user community.

=== ARM11 MIDs run Ubuntu ===

Chinese portable media player vendor SmartDevices is selling an 
ARM11-based mobile Internet device and larger 7-inch screen tablet 
device. Both the SmartQ 5 ($150) and SmartQ 7 ($190) devices run Ubuntu 
Linux, and offer WiFi and Bluetooth according to Chinese retailer 
EWorld. SmartDevices has formally announced the SmartQ 5 on its website, 
but has yet to tip the similar, but larger 7-inch SmartQ 7, which is 
being sold along with the 5-inch version at EWorld. Like the recently 
announced Routon P730 and P760 mobile internet devices from Chinese 
manufacturer Routon Electronic Co., the SmartQ devices are built around 
an ARM11-based Samsung S3C6410 system-on-chip clocked to 677MHz.

=== Running Ubuntu 9.04 With Older Hardware ===

Michael Larabel of Phoronix tells us that Phoronix has tested out Ubuntu 
9.04 quite extensively with a variety of different hardware and have 
delivered numerous benchmarks, but they had not looked closely at 
running the Jaunty Jackalope with older hardware. For testing they used 
a VIA Nehemiah processor clocked at 1GHz, a VIA VT8605-based 
motherboard, 512MB of system memory was installed, a 30GB Fujitsu 
MHT2030A IDE HDD was in use, and an integrated S3 86C380 ProSavageDDR 
K4M266 graphics adapter. Ubuntu 9.04 had booted significantly faster 
than Ubuntu 8.10, but when it came to the desktop performance with this 
VIA Nehemiah system with 512MB of system memory, the performance was 
close between the two most recent Ubuntu releases. In several tests 
Ubuntu 8.10 was faster than Ubuntu 9.04, but the leads were very small 
and would likely go unnoticed by the desktop user. The Ubuntu 9.04 
desktop does remain usable when using this antiquated hardware.

=== Review: ASUS EeePC 1000 HE ===

Jordan Spencer Cunningham of OS News decided it was time to get a new 
netbook, and he chose the Asus EeePC 1000 HE. One of the things he 
wanted to try out was the latest and greatest Ubuntu distribution in 
comparison with his last Ubuntu netbook experience. He was happy to find 
that the problems that he had on his old Acer Aspire One with 8.10 were 
completely non-existent. The system was speedy with little wait, even 
with full graphics enabled and using OpenOffice.org and Firefox. The 
system worked flawlessly, and he was very pleased with the apparent 
improvements over 8.10. Jordan says, "If the desktop version works this 
well on the 1000 HE, then I can't wait to use the netbook remix."

=== The Ubuntu and ATI Blues ===

Computerworld resident cyber cynic Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols tells us 
that he likes Ubuntu 9.04 a lot, but ATI graphic drivers don't work and 
play well with it. This is especially annoying since, for a while there, 
ATI was working hand-in-glove with Linux and even ATI's proprietary 
drivers worked well with Linux. ATI has stopped keeping up with Linux 
though and the result is mediocre graphics performance. Canonical has 
been made aware of the problem, and hopefully they'll come up with a 
fix. Vaughan-Nichols says he's not holding his breath though. AMD/ATI is 
shrinking after years of losing money, and he doubts very much that 
Canonical, or all the Linux vendors together, will convince them that 
they need to support older chips and fix up their drivers. In 
Vaughan-Nichols' opinion, the moral of the story is that all drivers 
should be open-sourced.

=== There's Way More to Linux than Ubuntu: 8 Distros Compared ===

Maximum PC's Will Kraft tells us that yes, there is more to Linux than 
Ubuntu. There are many different types of Linux to choose from, and he 
has written a guide to shed more light on some of the more common 
distributions in use today. Kraft includes Ubuntu in his guide, and he 
notes that when most people think of Linux, Ubuntu comes to mind first 
and foremost. Ubuntu Linux has been specifically designed for beginners 
and advanced Linux users alike, and it has always been easy to install 
thanks to the “Ubiquity” installation tool. Ubuntu offers a very 
comprehensive library of software for a wide variety of purposes, and 
the level of support and assistance for Ubuntu is excellent. The bottom 
line is Ubuntu is an excellent distro and definitely deserves its good 
reputation.

=== Ubuntu 9.04 UNR on Asus Eee PC 901: good and fast ===

IT Wire's Hamish Taylor downloaded the Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix (UNR) 
and installed it on his Asus Eee PC 901. The entire install process took 
about 30 minutes and then he rebooted into the new system. UNR booted 
very quickly and was quite responsive. Considering the system 
requirements for Windows 7, Taylor was interested to find out what the 
disk and RAM usage of UNR was. The results are rather interesting. /home 
(where user related files are) used 153 MB, while / (root – where the 
system files are) used 2.34 GB.
Positively miserly when compared to Windows 7 minimum requirements for a 
16 GB disk! Hamish then checked memory stats and then started a number 
of programs before he gave up. "When you have 10 applications open at 
the same time and you're still using less than 50% of the available RAM, 
you know something is going well." The final result is a fast booting, 
good looking Netbook. http://www.itwire.com/content/view/24861/1162/

=== Five Must Try Linux Distros ===

Blogger Stun from blog pirate gives a list of 5 of the linux operating 
systems that he knows of. He first talks about Ubuntu, "also one of the 
best Linux desktop operating systems." Stun talks about the features of 
Ubuntu, the release cycle, dual booting, and even the system 
requirements. http://www.blogpirate.org/2009/05/04/5-must-try-linux-distros/

=== Is Ubuntu elitist? ===

Blogger Christopher Tozzi from works with u goes over the perception 
that Linux users are elitists. Unlike proprietary systems like Apple and 
Microsoft, Linux Operating systems like Ubuntu don't have a public 
relations department to mold its' image. Christopher Tozzi says that the 
most troubling of stereotypes that is associated with Linux is elitism. 
That the unwillingness of the free-software community to deal with 
non-expert users is rampant. He then goes on point out that, "this 
elitism isn't representative of a majority of Linux users, especially 
those of mainstream distributions like Ubuntu." He points out that in 
his experience most Ubuntu users are humble and inclusive. He then 
presents a solution to fix this negative image of elitism. This is to 
review documentation, and make sure that it's accessible to all users 
regardless of experience. Also stricter policing of the Ubuntu forums to 
prevent belittling of Linux "neophytes".

=== Ubuntu 9.04 on an 8510P Compaq Laptop ===

Blogger Tony Hughes from Geek Zone tells us of the state that his work 
computer had achieved using Windows. He then installed 9.04 on it, and 
everything worked out of the box. He's planning on timing the boot from 
grub, which Tony Hughes believes was about 10 seconds. He is also 
planning on trying it on an older computer that he has at home.

=== 10 Reasons Ubuntu is a big failure in India ===

Blogger Bharat Balegere fromg AgniPulse.com covers why Ubuntu is a 
failure in India. These are: GRUB Boot loader does not have an aesthetic 
appeal, Login screen-users are required to type in their username, 
Desktop-the refresh option is missing, default login sound, default 
wallpaper, default audio driver is weak, totem movie player sucks, right 
click send to options are missing, silverlight-moonlight, safely remove 
USB drive or Unmount Volume. Bharat Balegere gives details about each of 
these 10 reasons, and hopes that developers will read and use his 
suggestions, so that he will have more success spreading Ubuntu to his 
friends.

=== Why Ubuntu should embrace Wine ===

Blogger Christopher Tozzi from works with u covers why Ubuntu should 
embrace wine. He believes that wine helps smooth over the transition 
from Windows to Ubuntu. This is due to making it so that users can use 
their windows programs and games in Ubuntu. Christopher Tozzi also sees 
this as a way to help more software vendors port their programs to Linux 
without having to go through too much extra work, and without having to 
make their source open. He doesn't see too many companies being willing 
to make their source public. Mr. Tozzi thinks that Ubuntu should 
continue to encourage the development and use of free, open-source, 
native applications for Linux. But to also not be reluctant to work with 
developers who want to make their products available through Wine.

=== Portable Ubuntu, Windows live together in Perfect Harmony ===

Jack M. Germain from Linux Insider gives a review on Portable Ubuntu. He 
first gives an introduction of Portable Ubuntu, which gives you Ubuntu 
as a process inside of Windows. He points out that it is faster than a 
Live CD and uses less resources than a virtual machine. Jack Germain 
also tells us about how easy it is to setup. We are also told about how 
secure Portable Ubuntu is even within Windows. Mr. Germain summarises by 
pointing out that it works with Windows XP and windows Vista, and in 
theory works in Windows 7. He informs us that Tejeda plans to update 
Portable Ubuntu on the same six-month development cycle used by the 
Ubuntu community. http://www.linuxinsider.com/rsstory/67016.html
