I spotted that this morning. I seem to recall at least one previous 
release of Ubuntu being mentioned on the BBC News website -- I can't 
remember whether or not it featured on the main page or just featured in 
the Technology section. It might well have been the main page as I don't 
often bother looking at Technology stories (usually yawnorama city about 

I can't make my mind up whether it was more, or less, likely to be 
featured on the main page with it being so soon after the launch of 
Windows 7 -- either way, it's good that it's getting high profile coverage.

Perhaps it's time for me to upgrade from 8.04...
