Things are a little bit different with the public beta of Firefox 2.0 released by Mozilla last week. (A final release of Firefox 2 is expected later in 2006.) Before starting my download, I noted this interesting warning on Mozilla’s DevNews page that appeared in bold text no less:

[Great idea! But why an Ipod? I mean, aren't Ipods manufactured and distributed by a company that takes from the community without giving back? - dcparris]
BANGALORE: Internet users woke up to an unusual Monday: Their favourite blogs were not available. What happened to the blogs? Slowly came the realisation that government had banned them. Banned ever-ything! Or ha-d they really?

With the update to a 2.6.18-rc based kernel, Xen requires some more effort to get to working. Given that Xen is one of the big features for Fedora Core 6, trying to ship the second test release (and thus the feature freeze) without Xen seems like a less than ideal situation.
- The Dreamlinux Project Team announced version 2.0 of Dreamlinux, a Brazilian Linux distribution based on the XFce desktop: called WORKS and it brings the most known Linux apps for a production environment, like OpenOffice, Inkscape, Gimp, etc..., and the version 2.5 of MKDistro, tool for distros' building.

OSDir has a nice selection of Dreamlinux screenshots in the Dreamlinux 2.0 Screenshot Tour
