Ubuntu's Shuttleworth praises Windows 7, welcomes fight

Matt

a month late

It'll be late if this is true "according to Shuttleworth, that's what's planned with Ubuntu 9.04, codenamed Jaunty Jackalope and due in May." - normally the .04 release is in April (hence the 04) not May.

Ubuntu really needs to dump the brown theme and get some decent eyecandy on the desktop. The rest of it's fine.

Forget Google rationing: Only lighting farts can save the planet

Just what I needed on a monday

Thanks Reg - monday seems so much better for reading this. I'm in a quiet office trying not to laugh out loud. Perhaps the "automatic in-pant flare stack technology" could be USB powered?

Agile fraudsters prey on clueless UK surfers

It's obvious

I didn't say anything about email scams or phishing. I just don't need anti-virus software - neither do I need to wait 2 days for the microsoft patches to apply to keep my os up to date. I can actually spend time using the computer than watching it grind to a halt waiting for the latest payload of patches, get fed up and cancel the update leaving me even more vulnerable.

The thing about using different passwords is good advice though!

Linux

It's obvious

Why do I need this anti virus and anti spyware software? Oh I don't because I don't use Windows. The get safe online website is full of good advice about not using the same password for all your sites, but fails to let people know that there are more secure operating systems that can be used instead of Windows - instead we're all to rush out and update the sticking plaster (anti-virus software and keeping the software up to date) rather than addressing the root cause - the operating system.
