Submission + - Ubuntu Community Manager: RMS's post seems a bit childish to me (

spacenet writes: As a response to RMS speaking out against Ubuntu about its privacy-violating integrated Amazon search results, which he considers to be spyware, Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon has responded to RMS's post. In his reply, Jono claims that Stallman's views on privacy do not align with Canonical's, that some of his statements are worded in order to "generate fear, uncertainty, and doubt about Ubuntu" and that "it just seems a bit childish to me".

The comments on the post itself are well worth a read.


Submission + - Team Fortress 2 Beta patch adds files refering to Linux support (

spacenet writes: Valve has quietly released an update to the beta version of its popular online FPS Team Fortress 2. Among the modified files are some Linux-related files including a hardware driver compatibility list, optimal graphics settings, and a shell script launcher (previously only for OSX, now with a case for Linux as well). Valve has not updated their TF2 beta changelog, but has acknowledged the update in a forum post.
