Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"There’s a lot of great new stuff in this release. Here’s a list of some of what you’ll find in this release:

"KDE 4.3
Social Networking Features (Various Widgets)
OpenOffice.org Integration
Ayatana Integration...

"Some folks might not enjoy the social networking features included in this release but I liked them a lot. I have a Facebook and Twitter account so I find apps that let me access those two services to be quite useful and I’m glad to see them in Kubuntu 9.10. Note that if you are on Facebook you can become a fan of Desktop Linux Reviews.The OpenOffice.org integration is nice but really didn’t matter too much to me. I use OO relatively sparingly these days as I write my columns for ExtremeTech using Google Docs most of the time and I write these reviews in WordPress. But I always like to have OO available just in case and it’s nice that it’s better integrated with KDE this time around. The slicked up installed looked good too though I didn’t notice any significant change in terms of speed or ease of the install."
