=== Ubuntu Featured on Italian National Television ===

Ubuntu made an appearance on Italian national TV this week.
Neapolis[1], a show which focuses on technology and the Internet, led
its 8 May 2008 show with a feature about our favourite operating
system, Ubuntu.

The show explained the meaning of Ubuntu and its key features:
freedom, the six month release cycle, guaranteed security updates, a
comprehensive software library, and great community support. Fabio
Marzocca, of the Ubuntu-it local community team, made an appearance to
explain the significance of the recent Long Term Support release,
Ubuntu 8.04, and to describe the active Italian Ubuntu community. The
clip also features shots of Ubuntu in action.

If you speak Italian, or just love watching videos featuring Ubuntu,
you can listen to the show on the RAI website[2], or on YouTube[3].
Congrats to Fabio and the other Italian community members who helped
bring this together.

== Ubuntu Forums News ==

=== Ubuntu Forums Interviews ===

This week, we’ll have a glance at Wybiral’s from the other side of the
computer screen. A free-lance python programmer, he’s one of the
Programming Talk sub-forum regulars. He’s got code in the repos, as he
says, so you may be using some of his work. Please read the full
interview here:

=== Tutorial of the Week ===

==== Complete Guide to Installation in Ubuntu ====

For this week’s tutorial pick, we step outside the Tutorials and Tips
forum again, for something a little more timely and a lot more
complex. This guide is a joint effort of forestpixie and starcraft.man
on installing in Ubuntu.

It’s a thread so huge it takes up four or five posts, just to cover
every topic. Don’t tackle this one on your lunch hour, because it will
take that long just to work your way through the table of contents
(yes, there is a table of contents — it’s that big).

In any case, it’s a huge endeavor originally presented by
starcraft.man and updated for Ubuntu 8.04 by forestpixie. Many thanks
to both members, for creating and updating such an impressive guide.

* Ubuntu Open Week unites community and developers – What’s the next
best thing for Linux users who can’t attend an open source community
conference in person? Online workshops like last week’s Ubuntu Open
Week [1], where upwards of 300 participants per session showed up to
learn more about the popular Linux distribution, the community, and
its teams. Organizers presented more than 40 events in a dedicated IRC
channel over the course of six days. Session leaders spoke to the
group in the 3ubuntu-classroom, while a second channel was devoted to
collecting questions from the group. This kept the learning channel
free of chatter and allowed the speaker to proceed without
interruption. http://www.linux.com/feature/134683

* The heron has landed: a review of Ubuntu 8.04 – Ubuntu 8.04,
codenamed Hardy Heron, spread its wings and flew out of the nest last
month. This is the second Ubuntu release to offer long-term support,
which means that critical updates will be available on the desktop for
three years and on the server for five years. This review offers a
look at:installation including Wubi, Transmission, Brasero, Tracker,
PulseAudio, GNOME 2.22, Firefox 3, and Compiz. Conclusion: Ubuntu 7.10
set the standard for power and ease of use for Linux desktop
distributions. Ubuntu 8.04 pushes that forward, but trips over its own
feet because of the PulseAudio integration problems. The clear failure
to improve some of the weak spots that were identified in the 7.10
Trackers mediocre search tool, also detracts from the value of this
release. Despite these problems, Ubuntu 8.04 still offers a better and
more polished desktop than its predecessor.

* Meet The Hardy Heron: What’s New in Ubuntu 8.04 – This newest
version was developed under the codename “Hardy Heron.” The previous
version, 7.10 (once known by the code name of “Gutsy Gibbon”) was a
rock-solid release that launched in October 2007. Numerous incremental
improvements have appeared since – with all the updates freely
available and automatically installable. Ubuntu has continued to
develop momentum as a reliable, fun to use operating system.

* Time to choose, Ubuntu fans: rage or reason? – His post last week
about Ubuntu’s embrace of the profit motive (exemplified in sponsor
Canonical’s release of a proprietary and non-free management tool)
triggered a pretty remarkable flood of venom and invective in his
direction. Jeff Gould goes on to defend his position concerning
Ubuntu’s offering the availability of some proprietary software to
users.

* Linux Shootout: 7 Desktop Distros Compared – In this roundup, 7
Linux distributions are compared: openSUSE 10.3, Ubuntu 8.04,
PCLinuxOS 2007, Mandriva Linux One 2008, Fedora 8, SimplyMEPIS 7.0,
and CentOS 5.1. Ubuntu installed with little or no trouble on all of
the test machines, including a VirtualBox instance. One major new
change: consoles that normally require administrative access can be
launched by a conventional user to inspect settings, but need to be
unlocked (with the root password) to make any changes. Power
management in Linux seems to be perennially problematic, and in this
respect, Ubuntu was no exception. “Wubi” — a Windows installer for
Ubuntu, one-ups the “Upgrade-from-Windows” featured in previous
versions. This is easily the best way to try out Ubuntu provisionally.

* Review: Hardy Heron converts an Ubuntu skeptic – Susan Linton has
tried about every Ubuntu release, and had more than her share of
issues. With the release of Ubuntu 8.04, she downloaded the i386
version to test. She did have some problems which are documented in
the article, and has still not been completely won over by Ubuntu.
However, her conclusion states: “I still think the “Ambassador of
Linux” should be prettier upon first boot. I’m disappointed in the
Ubuntu Nvidia driver handling, but happy that I can finally use my
wireless connection in Ubuntu. The functional Migration Assistant, the
available Help tool, and refined software stack earn Ubuntu points in
helping new users adjust, while the new PolicyKit loses one for
overcomplicating an already confusing concept. However, I found little
to complain about with this release. In the end, my experience with
8.04 was much better than any version previously. I was actually
fairly impressed, darnit.” http://www.linux.com/feature/134672

== In The Blogosphere ==

* Moving to Ubuntu – Dhruva Sagar installed Ubuntu and now for the
past week he has not looked at Windows Vista even once on his laptop.
It’s not that he hasn’t worked on linux before, he has worked on
several distros for experimenting and learning purposes in the past,
but after having worked on Windows Vista for about a year, and then
shifting to Ubuntu. It truly helped him see the incredibly huge
difference for himself. “Ubuntu is simply miles ahead of Windows Vista
(this is only a matter of personal belief), it is really cool and so
swift, It’s almost as if it had upgraded my memory!!!”
http://www.dhruvasagar.com/blog/index.php/2008/05/06/moving-to-ubuntu/

* Ubuntu’s OpenGL face browser will bring bling to GDM – The GNOME
Display Manager, (GDM), is a component of the GNOME desktop
environment that provides a graphical login prompt. It is often the
first interactive part of the desktop that users experience after the
computer finishes booting. GDM has changed little over the years.
GNOME eye-candy expert Mirco Müller, who is employed by Canonical, is
currently working on refining the login experience to make it
aesthetically richer and more interactive. He is designing an animated
face browser for the next generation GNOME display manager, which will
be used in a future version of Ubuntu. Although the functional details
and visual design haven’t been finalized yet, the basic experience is
documented in a specification at the Ubuntu wiki.
http://arstechnica.com/journals/linux.ars/2008/04/29/ubuntus-opengl-face-browser-will-bring-bling-to-gdm

* Ubuntu Hardy Heron: Beyond the Hype and into the Dilemma – As the
Ubuntu team would undoubtedly be the first to admit, some of the
credit that Hardy Heron is receiving is not due to any action on its
part beyond the wish to package the latest free software. When
reviewers praise Ubuntu for the ability to display clocks for multiple
timezones, for example, they really should be praising GNOME for its
2.22 release. Similarly, improved sound capability is due to the
option to use PulseAudio rather than ALSA to manage sound, while
improved integration of the browser into the desktop is due to the
joint efforts of GNOME and Mozilla. However, just as defragging and
anti-virus software never existed until they were first bundled with
Windows, for many people, these enhancements never existed until
bundled with Ubuntu.
