Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical's Mark Shuttleworth has announced the plans for Ubuntu 9.10, named Karmic Koala. Jaunty Jackalope isn't out of its cage yet (April 2009), but the Ubuntu team is already planning for 9.10, which will see the light of day in October 2009. The desktop side will focus on beautification and an improved boot-up experience; the server side will target cloud computing.

I guess you've never been in a field of golden wheat, or in the grand canyon, or on a beach, or near the sea-side cliffs of Newfoundland.

Why prefer blue? When people have the blues, they're sad. Blue is also the colour of molded cheese. Do you prefer a sad and moldy colour to a peaceful natural down to earth colour?

Personally when I'm down, the colour is grey; however grey was the main colour for Windows for years, and a grey background is much easier on the eyes than any colour or pure white.

I see blues and greens as being clean and fresh (e.g. pictures of Earth from space). Black and green is very techy (e.g. Shadowrun, The Matrix), and blues seem gentle. Also men appear to prefer colours from the blue end of the spectrum.

I can never really get into brown myself, it just seems functional but dull.

Which is sexier? Blue eyes or brown? Actually grey or green eyes for me but then blue. Brown is just too ... normal. At least in America. I realize it is very different in other countries and this is a world wide product.
