Thursday marked the release of Ubuntu Linux version 5.10 (thats year dot month), better known as "Breezy Badger." Since the release of "Warty Warthog" a year ago, Ubuntu has quickly become one of the most popular desktop Linux distributions in the world, thanks to a combination of good timing, good taste and a focus on global collaboration and community building. Ubuntu Linux is and always will be completely free.
Of particular interest to educators is the new Edubuntu distribution, which is a special version of Ubuntu Linux tailored for schools. The first Edubuntu release only represents a few months of work, so its goals are modest, particularly for the casual user.
Its big innovation is infra-structural: a significant re-working of the architecture of the Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP), which is used to connect Linux thin clients to a server. A computer with Edubuntu installed is ready to act as a thin client server right out of the box.
Blizzard Entertainment, maker of the popular Warcraft and Diablo videogame titles, handed opponents of reverse engineering perhaps their most potent weapon to date last month when the US 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in its case against open source software developers who had created BnetD, an application that emulated Blizzard's Battle.Net and let gamers connect with each other outside of the company's servers.

Edubuntu is a flavour of the Ubuntu operating system, which is optimised for classroom use. It has been developed in collaboration with teachers and technologists around the world.

Welcome to this year's 42nd issue of DistroWatch Weekly. The timely release of Ubuntu Linux 5.10 and its sister distributions last Thursday was the event of the week - this issue naturally starts with a closer look at "Breezy Badger". We'll also investigate wireless network configuration on SUSE Linux 10.0, feature the unusual, Slackware-inspired Kate OS distribution, and ask why the otherwise Linux-friendly Google has expended so little effort to make Google Earth available on our preferred operating system. Happy reading! Join us at irc.freenode.net #distrowatch
Small and midsize companies are creating IT infrastructures based on open-source software to reduce licensing fees and increase flexibility
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), an industry consortium devoted to improving Linux, plans to launch an initiative today to bring the open source operating system to mobile phones.
Most people who chimed in complained that the NetGear box didn't support anything other than Windows – I don't find this to be a tragic big deal since if you're running Linux, you can find yourself a way to rig up a RAID array with a suitable distro on a spare server.
Warning. If you read any further, you will find yourself at ground 0.0 of the biggest battle the computer industry has ever seen. It is where the biggest warriors from the proprietary software world, the open standards world, and the open source world are engaged in hand-to-hand combat. At least for the moment, the open source and open standards worlds (the Rebel Alliance) appear to have joined sides against the proprietary warlords, led by Microsoft.
