Upgrade to Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat

Posted 11-08-2010 at 12:54 PM by bhupendra

The upgrade to Maverick went smoothly. I quite like the Meerkat. Following all the excitement about Fedora 14 Gnome, I installed it in the Virtual Box.

rss-glx: 3D fireworks screensaver and more

Posted 11-07-2010 at 06:03 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

at some moment of video the guy starts some ugly screensaver from windblows, something looks like old "pipes" from older versions of the system and then, starts this outstanding 3d screensaver with fireworks exploding under the clouds in ubuntu laptop. Which is free and opensource, yeah.
