Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Ubuntu team announced the release of Ubuntu 6.10, codenamed 'Edgy Eft'. Highlights for the desktop include GNOME 2.16, Firefox 2.0, OpenOffice.org 2.0.4, Gaim 2.0 and two new applications, F-Spot and Tomboy. This release also features a pre-release of the upcoming LTSP-5, as well as the usual updates of the base system, with GCC 4.1.1, Glibc 2.4 and Linux 2.6.17. There's a screenshot tour already, while Mark Shuttleworth commented on the news concerning Oracle and Linux. Update: The first review in what will probably become a long list. Update II: Kubuntu 6.10 is released as well.

Although I don't agree with the parent I had to give one of my votes to help modding him up.

Are we at OSNews (the readers) just too dumb that we have to mod down everything we don't agree with ?

Gee... get a life, you crazy-modders.

The guy says something, does not offend anyone, does not go off topic, gives no wrong information and still there is some crazy guy out there trying to mod it out of sight just so his ideas are not propagated ?

...

most irritating.

Alexandre Moreira.

PS: Yeah, deep in my heart I know the parents text is not wrong... but hell I want my hardware to behave as I thought it would when I purchased it.
