+ - Kernel.Org Upgrading To FreeBSD 7.0->

After much deliberation, research and argument in #korg (along with screaming matches between HPA and I over dinner) we are upgrading the kernel.org machines from Fedora Core 5 to FreeBSD 7.0.
I thought, dammit, it's almost like the Hell just froze over or what. Obviously, it's not an April Fool's joke — the downtime is scheduled on April 2nd."

+ - Dell To Ship Ubuntu

Submitted by harry666t
harry666t (1062422) writes "Wired says Dell's going to ship Ubuntu Linux on some of its desktop computers and laptops.

According to Desktop Linux, Dell will ship three models, an e-series "Essential" Dimension desktop, an XPS desktop, and an e-series Inspiron laptop. The desktop models range from $400 (headless) to $900 and the laptop from $900 to $1150.
I think the choice was obvious — after all, that's the distro Michael Dell is using on his laptop."

... though his invention worked superbly -- his theory was a crock of sewage from beginning to end. -- Vernor Vinge, "The Peace War"

Working...
