+ - Mobile Phone Sales Rise, iPhone and Android Grow->

mark0 writes: Gartner reports that mobile phone sales have risen in 1Q2010, up 17% year-on-year. That's good news for iPhone OS and Android, which saw their market shares grow to 15.4% and 9.6%, respectively. Other platforms slipped and ZDNet already proclaims the death of Windows Mobile. They suggest open-sourcing WM could have saved it, but that doesn't seem to be helping Symbian.

Ubuntu LTS Experiences X.org Memory Leak 320 320

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.'"
