Ubuntu 14.04 just got released, and the reviews are looking pretty good. I'm downloading now.
 
A new IG video has landed just in time for Ubuntu's latest release. I present Ubuntu 14.04.

I am pleased to announce the release of Wide Margin 1.2.17 Release Candidate 

New Features include:
New history bible book category and missing books from poetry section.
Added bible module copyright to about info.
Improved error handling and retry on bible module install.

Right now we need lots of testing done to ensure that this release candidate is ready for release. I want to say a big thank you to all the people who contributed to this release to make it possible. Wide Margin is free and opensource and is produced entirely by volunteers. Wide Margin is available for Ubuntu and Windows destkop.

Nice to see major non steam games coming to Linux 
 
Civilization: Beyond Earth will support Linux at launch.

The next game in the popular Civilization series will support Linux on launch day. Civilization: Beyond Earth is a spiritual successor to the popular space-based strategy title Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri from 1999.

#Linux   #Civilization  
Sid Meier's next Civilization game, titled 'Beyond Earth', will be available on Linux at launch later this year.

It doesn't matter that apple says it isn't sharing the fingerprints with the government.

The truth is that if the goverment tells Apple to hand over your fingerprint, then Apple has no choice but to comply.

Meh, the US govt. already has my fingerprints - you have to supply them as a pre-requisite for going through customs (and that includes transit!)
