Ubuntu, Ubuntu and more Ubuntu

Several Ubuntu articles: Looking forward to Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon”, Ubuntu upgrades support Canonical’s enterprise push, Ubuntu Plans Eye Candy for Desktop Computers and Beyond, The secrets of Ubuntu's success
Looking forward: What's in Ubuntu

Quote:

Ubuntu 7.10 isn’t a major release and won’t have long term support (LTS) but the development team have added just enough new features to make this upgrade a compelling one for anyone that’s already using Ubuntu and ironed out a few of the creases to make it a little easier for new adopters of the distro.

And about the enterprise push

Quote:

The newest versions of the Ubuntu Linux open source operating system will debut Thursday with features designed to match the capabilities of more well-known systems, including improved security, virtualization and management capabilities for servers.

NY Times online about eye candy

Quote:

Low cost and armies of devoted techies have not been enough. So the people behind Ubuntu—a dialect of Linux— have a new idea: eye candy.

Thoughts on the secrets:

Quote:

No, community is Ubuntu's capital, and it has invested this capital wisely. Ubuntu inspires the same sort of user passion that Apple does. This is why I think it, and not Novell, will be the biggest challenger to Red Hat's Linux dominance (though I don't see it displacing Red Hat – I suspect there will be a happy harmony between the two). Sun will play as well, but it's hard to bet against Ubuntu's momentum.
