muszek writes "Earlier tonight Information Week's comparison of Ubuntu and Windows Vista was posted on Slashdot. The article was written by a Windows power user. For those who want to hear the other side of the story, Ubuntu News posted a lenghty reply. Saying Windows' "add/remove programs" is equal to apt-get goodness simply cannot go unnoticed."

muszek writes "Ubuntu Open Week is a series of IRC meetings of people behind the distribution and the community. Mark Shuttleworth answered various questions on Tuesday and Wednesday. The interview covers many issues, including: GPL v3, proprietary software, Microsoft's $3 project, Launchpad, non-free stuff in Ubuntu, April 19th siege of ubuntu.com, Canonical vs. Ubuntu Foundation, becoming F/OSS contributor. Full logs are available on Ubuntu wiki. Ubuntu News has a digest with the most interesting pieces."
muszek writes "Complain as much as you want about software availability under Linux, but when it comes to programming tool, we don't have to feel inferior. Over the past one and a half decades, geeks created many editors... for other geeks. But what about casual programmers? Those that want a simple and lightweight IDE? Ubuntu News has a review of Geany — a quite new, but really well designed editor that has all of the essential features and manages to be easy to pick up. What programming IDE(s) do you use under Linux? What makes it better than other tools?"
