Ubuntu LTS Experiences X.org Memory Leak 320

MonsterTrimble writes "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Beta 2 is experiencing a major memory leak due to patches for X.org. 'An X.Org Server update that was pushed into the Lucid repository last week has resulted in the system being slower and slower as it is left on, until it reaches a point where the system is no longer usable. ... In order to make the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS deadline, the developers are looking at just reverting three of the patches, which brings the GLX version back to 1.2. Ubuntu developers are now desperate for people willing to test out this updated X.Org Server package so they can determine by this Friday whether to ship it with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or doing an early SRU (Stable Release Update). Right now this X.Org Server that's being tested is living in the ubuntu-x-swat PPA.'"

I can't believe I can't pick the songs I want to upgrade to iTunes plus ! All or nothing! I have tons of songs purchased on iTunes... when the previous label went DRM-free, I could choose which ones to upgrade and what not. This is not the case anymore, it's all or nothing, all upfront. I have LOTS of iTunes songs, so upgrading all would be VERY expensive. Some of them I listen continuously and they could user the higher bitrate, some other I never listen or are fine at 128k AAC. There's no other word: this SUCKS!

>Bohooo! Bitch to Blizzard, they are the ones who didn't port their games to non-windows OSs. Well, not really they just don't port to linux. They've always been great with the mac, releasing mac version the same day (and often on the same cd!). And they've been wonderful for long term support: I'm currently installing Starcraft on my mac under OS X.5. This game was released TEN years ago, for Mac OS 7, but blizzard took the pain to provide the patches for continued compatibility.

All the simple programs have been written.
