  • Dear Ubuntu: I Have Some Concerns – "Dear Ubuntu, for the last couple years life has been good. Every time I've shown you to a friend or family member, they've compared you to what they're familiar with–Windows XP or Vista, mostly–and by comparison you've looked brilliant. Yeah, your ugly brown color scheme was a bit off-putting at first, but once people saw how secure, simple, and reliable you were, the response was almost universally positive. But recently, things have changed …"<br />

    I’m a bit late with this, considering that 10.04 is out already, but it will be interesting how people have found 10.04 to stack up against 9.10.<br />
    <br />
    From Tanner Helland who previously wrote 10 Days of Ubuntu 10.10 Feature Requests, this is a Dear John-style letter about how the author is finding it difficult to love Ubuntu in the face of the severe problems with 9.10, and just how good Windows 7 is.
  • Do Blind People Use a Special Keyboard? – This is one of the most common question asked by sighted people when they meet or hear about blind computer users. Here, I’ll not only answer this question, but I’ll discuss where it may have come from. I’ll also add in some interesting facts along the way.

    ubuntu_poster.jpg

    I made this Ubuntu poster some time ago, and released the “sources” with a Gnu-GPL licence. But this licence is not really made for work like this, since it was concieved for software only. Now I’m re-releasing this with a more appropriate licence, a Creative Commons (share alike) licence 3.0.

    The zip file you can download here contains the parts I used to make the poster in png and svg formats, compatible with all the major free applications like the Gimp, Inkscape and Scribus. You can use them to make your own poster, create a localized version, make a wallpaper or sticker with it… whatever you want as long as you don’t do it for profit, and you share the result with the same CCPL licence (see the link to creative commonst below for more info). Please let me know if you do something with it… just curious!
