Submission + - Ubuntu gets a "Fresh Look" ( 1

Luke has no name writes: "The "human" OS is getting some makeup. For the upcoming 10.04 LTS release, Ubuntu's theme is getting revamped. Its logos, default themes and panel icons are all changing to reflect their new "Light" theme.

The new style of Ubuntu is driven by the theme "Light". We've developed a comprehensive set of visual guidelines and treatments that reflect that style, and are updating key assets like the logo accordingly. The new theme takes effect in 10.04 LTS and will define our look and feel for several years. — Source"


Submission + - Oracle responds to MySQL purchase concerns (

Luke has no name writes: Yesterday we discussed [MySQL founder] Monty Widenius's objections to the acquisition of MySQL by Oracle. Today, Oracle released a statement to address some of these issues. Among the facts, Oracle intends to continue releasing MySQL under the GPL, allow vendors to produce "any-license" third party engines, maintain the Reference Manual, invest millions into the product, and create a "customer advisory board". Thanks to for the link.

Anything cut to length will be too short.
