Huge news, guys. HUGE.

/s
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will ship with an older version of Nautilus than originally planned, a decision that will mean LTS users miss on a number of new features.

GNOME isn't developed as a build-you-own-desktop anymore. I don't think it's a surprise that mixing GTK versions, 3.14, 3.16 and 3.18 packages with invasive downstream patches doesn't work very well.

The device looks great — especially when hooked up to a monitor!
See pictures of the new Ubuntu tablet from BQ, the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, and get a close-up look at the convergence features, including Unity 8.

Still love simple 2D wallpapers from this site <3
Finding a new desktop wallpaper is not hard, is it? All it takes is a quick Google. But sometimes we're our own worst enemy. The wallpapers we choose, for all of their allure, can be distracting - from blinding bokeh backdrops, nature scenes that we can't resist daydreaming over, to the bright lights of an urban city-scape continually drawing the eye. To use a clichéd motto: it sometimes pays to keep things simple.

Ubuntu & Linux News  - 
 
Thinking of doing an updated version of this post (since many of the apps mentioned in this version from 2013 are either no longer available or no longer the 'best' choices). 

Any app, game or utility ideas you think should be mentioned? I want to keep such a post concise, so won't be listing every available option/alternative. 

Let me know :) 
You've installed Ubuntu, followed our helpful '10 Things to Do' guide, and now you want some top-notch apps to use on it. Well, read on!

+Derek Hunter They expected you to upgrade to 15.10. The only reason to run a non LTS release is for new packages.

Accidentally came across an old post of mine from 2008, posted on the precursor to OMG! Ubuntu! (and one of the few pre-OMG! articles to survive the site migration).

Rather bizarre to read/hear my reasoning here, not because it's (clearly) 'first draft/stream of consciousness' quality but because my thoughts sound so unencumbered; fresh and open-minded, almost. 

I've been blogging for more than 7 years now. It's nice to remember I was once a 'n0ob' whose enthusiasm and appetite for "blogging" wasn't quite as worn as it often feels to be now. 
Netbook's are funny little machines. Powerful enough to be awesome mobile devices but underpowered and not suited to support most ‘Operating Systems' fully

I've still got my 9" EeePC with the 900MHz processor.  Pretty quickly ditched Xandros and put a full desktop Ubuntu on it.  Wrote my first few books on it.
