The Ubuntu team hit it out of the park with 14.04 -- I'm tempted to ride the LTS train on my main desktop this go around, I've got so much stuff going on. It is really solid.

I just installed Xubuntu 14.04 from the daily live CD for a VM (I like XFCE better than Unity in a VM)...but anyway -- WOW, the Xubuntu team rocked it out for this release! Great job!

This is running really well for me...Font rendering seems to be better also (at least for GUI Elements). I've always had folders on my bookmarks bar that didn't show up right on my Linux box -- they'd be three dots (...) unless I added empty space at the end of the folder name, and that doesn't happen now.
 
The chromium team aims to launch¹ the Aura graphics stack on Linux in M35 and they need your help to test it. As you know, Aura is the cross-platform graphics system, and the Aura frontend will replace the current GTK+ frontend. 

This should also address long standing issues with GPU memory consumption and GPU rendering performance. Using our own graphics stack enables us to have one OpenGL context per window, instead of one OpenGL context per tab, which should significantly reduce GPU resource consumption.

The use of Aura on desktop Linux is new and not well tested. We are replacing the entire frontend with a new one. We’re asking as many Linux users to opt into the dev channel as possible.
Opt-in right now by typing $ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-unstable in your terminal.

If you stumble upon any issue, please report them at http://crbug.com/new-linux-aura-bug.

So +Dean Lisenby, congrats on your Amateur Radio License! I know of two fellow Linux folks I have in my circles who are into Amateur Radio: +Orv Beach and +Eugene Mah -- I thought it might be worth making an intro.

+John Pugh, I'm studying for the general right now and currently scheduled to take the exam in 2 weeks.  Once I pass that I'll settle down on the book/test knowledge and focus on the hobby itself.

What's up Lazy Plus -- been a while. Been busy in real life :-)
Curious though -- anyone running Ubuntu 14.04? I was thinking of biting the bullet and upgrading my home machine this weekend if it was stable enough yet...

I'm still on 13.10, going to wait for full release and confirmation that cinnamon works on it.

For some reason I've been really unhappy with gnome/unity.

Interesting read!
Linux is used everywhere but in education systems, the exact opposite is true. Education system is too vital to depend on a private company, imagine if Microsoft goes bankrupt and vanishes tomorrow, the entire education system will be in jeopardy for what to teach.

My collection of Kindle eBooks is growing...often I pick up eBooks for a few dollars here and there (or even free). The only think I have to read them on now is my phone, and that is not ideal, and neither is using the cloud reader in a web browser on a computer. 

Are there any Kindle users out there that care to share their opinion on the different options? I'm thinking about just the regular Kindle, or MAYBE the Paperwhite. Also, is it worth the extra money to get it "without the special offers"? Are the ads really annoying?

I started with a Kindle Touch, gave that to my wife and got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7".  I find the later ideal, the form factor is good for holding in one hand and it works well for periodicals like Linux Journal because of the back light and color.  Plus the tablet is way more than just a reader.

I debated sharing at this early stage but I decided to go ahead. Please pray for me as I begin this journey.
I debated sharing at this stage, but I decided I wanted too. I've already shared with some friends that I've had the chance to. I have decided to pursue study at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. It could very well b...

Pretty Cool!
This house in Raleigh is far more unusual than its appearance would suggest.
