The announcement that Ubuntu is to seperate from GNOME from its new release is perhaps the perfect answer to the spat which took place last month over Canonicals contributions to the GNOME desktop. Personally, however, I feel that this move comes as no surprise and is 100 % the correct thing to do in the circumstances. From licensing H.264 to OEMs, to the partner repository to the Software Centre, Canonical has consistently seen itself as destinct from the larger Linux community. This is the latest...

Things that annoy me in Ubuntu

Posted 10-22-2010 at 04:55 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I'm currently using Ubuntu on my desktop computer, and would like to share some of my issues with it and Gnome.

1) Updater creating popups and stealing my window focus
Updating is supposed to be a great feature of Linux distributions, but Ubuntu sucks at the GUI end of it. While updating I have to either leave my computer alone until the process is finished or face annoying popups in the middle of my screen every five seconds with a progress bar on them for every stage of...

Why GUADEC?

I've become involved in preparations for GUADEC 2010, the GNOME Users And Developers European Conference 2010. I can go into detail about the size and scope of the thing, but you can find out more on the website. I'd rather talk about why I became involved.

I am a GNOME user. I know: I fall into a pretty 'vanilla' category for being a fan of the world's most popular linux flavour. But I like it and and it works. And one of the things that impressed me so much about it was GNOME. Years...

Introduction

Posted 04-03-2010 at 01:54 PM by ddalley

My name is Donald and I have been using Linux as much as possible for the last couple of years, mainly to find a replacement OS for my wife's Linux netbook and to educate myself. I don't really need Linux, but I have spent many years avoiding Windows, since the early '80s, although I have Windows-based computers, too.

A blog, eh? The average blog here has about two posts, so we'll see how well I maintain this.

Graphical appearance of Ubuntu Gnome

Posted 03-03-2009 at 06:15 PM by herbie643

I'm an old Windows user who converted to Ubuntu in April 2008 and never looked back. Ubuntu does everything I need to do. Of course I'm just a Desktop user at home, but I've been in computers since 1976 so I have seen quite a few Operating Systems.
Windows, well, it's ok but not great. Very hard to reconfigure the appearance, at least the way I want to. Vista, omg, what a pain.
Ubuntu, a dream. Get all the themes you need from gnome-look.org.
The point of this entry is,...
