Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx. Several users are reporting that their iPod Touches and iPhones (including the 3GS) work in alpha 3 - without tweaking, without jailbreaking, without patching - with Nautilus and Rythmbox.

What what WHAAT? Damn Thom, I didn't see that coming. Good to have you in the camp of Good and Light finally.

I've been using Linux in one form or another since 2001 or 2002. I've always had Linux installs around since then. The difference is that over the past few months, I came to realise I needed to invoke my Grand Rule of Thumb: if a Free alternative is at least almost as good as the non-Free alternative, then Free it is.

Mind, though, that I still have countless (okay, two) other machines running Windows 7. They're both media centres running Boxee (living room and bedroom).

The only remaining problem right now is my deep-rooted hatred for OpenOffice - but I'm willing to lose a few nails and hairs over that one.
