Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal - Unity replaces Gnome as default shell (Download Squad)

Oct 26th 2010 6:47AM "It will be the first version of the OS not to ship with the Gnome shell as the default UI." GNOME Shell is an unreleased addition to the GNOME 3 desktop environment, no stable desktops currently use it. I think you mean the GNOME desktop environment, using the word 'shell' makes this article confusing.

Google outlaws Windows, but what if Microsoft outlaws Google...? (Download Squad)

Jun 1st 2010 5:28PM I couldn't agree more. I'm sorry but Sebastian's posts have been speculative drivel for the past few weeks, I feel like I'm reading the Daily Mail.

TotalFinder brings tabs to Mac OS X! (Download Squad)

Jan 14th 2010 4:48PM And I thought I'd get first on bigging up Nautilus and its tabs.

Google implicates the Chinese government of cyber warfare, considers pulling out of China (Download Squad)

Jan 12th 2010 8:41PM I couldn't believe it when I read it. /. still has plenty of people writing this off as PR. I couldn't disagree more, they have tried multiple times over the years to use unfiltered search results and I guess just fell in line in the end (which you shouldn't really blame them for, no better than the rest of us who continually trade with China). Great to see they are fighting back.

HTML5 YouTube viewer: close, but not quite there (Download Squad)

Nov 8th 2009 7:28PM Works great in Chromium for Linux, you do need to install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree first though.

DrunkTwt: Tweeting while intoxicated (Download Squad)

May 20th 2009 12:41PM You managed to shut them down for the day! Poor guys losing all their followers.

Ubuntu tip: Use Startup Manager to edit your boot menu (Download Squad)

Oct 10th 2008 7:22PM The apt link doesn't work :(

Deluge: Cross-platform BitTorrent client (Download Squad)

Apr 18th 2008 6:26PM I think Deluge is great, fast, stable and has some great plugins (creating most of the funtionality). I've been using it from Dapper to Hardy and it's been brillant, much better than uTorrent under Wine.

Ubuntu Hardy: The latest and greatest or a total mess? (Download Squad)

Apr 1st 2008 1:22PM Interesting your criticism of Firefox 3.

That is one of my favourite new additions to Hardy (despite not being a core Ubuntu program), it is blazing fast, low memory usage and the new address bar is genius -- how could it not be widely implemented before?

Mozilla says Firefox 3 beta is ready for prime time, we beg to differ (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2008 10:32AM Far more stable than Firefox 2 for me, but doesn't properly render Google Reader. Using Linux.
