Ubuntu 10.04 Released

I know it is hard to get excited about an Operating System because it's forta is to be unnoticed.  This release has more social networking tools built in then any that came before. In fact Jesse (my nephew) needed to be able to phone home while in Turkey this month so I through Ubuntu 10.04 on an eeepc 900 and got him to sign into his gmail account in Empathy and we were talking.  Empathy has remote desktop built in so when he was waiting for his plane in Grande Prairie we could talk and I could show him how to install and configure the other programs he wanted.  All done via default install and all done via open source software.  Ubuntu 10.04 is awesome.  Everything for under $200 doesn't hurt a school boys budget either.

Sierra Wireless usb 306 and Ubuntu 10.04

Installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a Acer Aspire 3680 this morning. He needed Telus's USB Stick to work. So I clicked on "New Mobile Broadband connection" and clicked on Telus and it worked. Great I better install Xiphos since he is a preacher.
