Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Who says the open source and Free software world only copy but never innovate? Over at Canonical's design blog - you know, the company which does nothing for the Linux world *cough* - someone named Christian Giordano has shared some ideas about how Ubuntu - and therefore, the rest of the Linux world - could make use of hardware sensors to better serve its users. Pretty interesting stuff.

I suspect that might not be the case. One of the functions of the led is the notify you that nobody is spying on you or that your webcam is active. If one could turn it off via software that could present a risk.

But then again there are those anti burglar programs that record videos based on movement...
