"Desktop & Apps
One thing I was pleased to see when I saw the Ubuntu CE 5.0 desktop was a nice wallpaper of Jesus Christ. Why? Well one of the things I didn't like about Ubuntu CE the last time I reviewed it was that it didn't feel very religious. It just didn't give me any of the feelings that one ought to get from religious imagery because it really didn't have much. So I was pleased to see that the developers are starting to take that concern more seriously although it's important to note that they regard this as a "back to basics" release and they will be adding more aesthetically pleasing things later on.

"The other thing I noticed were two popups on the desktop. One had something from Phillippians 4:19 that said "But my God shall supply all of your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." And the other popup was Bible Trivia that asked me the question "What nation had 185,000 soldiers slaughtered by an angel?" Well I had no idea so I just clicked the Answer button and found out that it was Assyria. Hey, you learn something new every day right?"
