For those of you who use Ubuntu (assuming there are any ), it's

gksu "update-manager -c"

to upgrade.


The updates are:
* Tomboy, an easy-to-use and efficient note-taking tool
* F-Spot, a photo management tool that enables tagging, photo editing
and automatic uploading to on-line web management sites such as
Flickr
* GNOME 2.16, which in addition to new features such as enhanced power
management, makes the GNOME desktop more secure, faster and more
stable
* Substantially faster startup and shutdown with eye-catching
high-resolution graphics
* The latest Firefox web browser, version 2.0, which offers inline spell
check support in web forms, easy recovery of crashed sessions, built-in
phishing detectors, enhanced search engine management with built in
OpenSearch support, and better support for previewing and
subscribing to web feeds
* Proactive security features, preventing many common security
vulnerabilities even before they are discovered
* Evolution 2.8.0, which brings new features such as vertical message
panes

It's going to be interesting to see the first day download

statistics.

I was only getting about 30KB from the main site. Switched to Bittorrent. There were over 1,000 seeds when I removed the torrent (I had hit my default share ratio of 1.5).

Betting that it will be at least 10 times higher than Fedora Core 6's 10,000 first day downloads.

And that won't count the upgrades to 6.06 LTS.

At least until I get my new system built. I had forgotten that the new version was coming out today.

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
