Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu When Dell announced a shift in its Linux strategy last week, accompanied by a new netbook, many wondered why Dell insisted on pre-loading Ubuntu 8.04, instead of newer versions of the popular Linux distribution such as 8.10 or 9.04. BetaNews contacted Dell about it, and Dell replied explaining their rationale behind opting for 8.04.

I wanted to like Programmer Dvorak (so i could abandon my custom Dvorak layout), but the designer had apparently been hitting the bong a bit too much and reordered the number keys.

Yeah, I'm also not on the latest Programmer Dvorak layout. The original author did make some strange changes. I'm somewhere on v1.0 or v1.1.1 I think.

...we probably need a whole article on programmer-friendly keyboad layouts ;-)

Definitely! :-)
