A few days ago Linus Torvalds received a great sign of recognition for his work on the Linux kernel, being one of the two laureates of the 2012 Millenium prize (see featured content in http://idilix.net). This recognition by a renowned institution helps not only to publicise Linux but also helps those who know about it to respect it's place among the other popular desktop operating systems. It's a prize to all the FOSS community!
The new Long Term Support version of Ubuntu is out! It's the fifth Ubuntu LTS release, the first desktop edition to receive five years of support and the first LTS to include the Unity interface. As we could have guessed, Unity has reached the maturity of an enterprise-grade distro. But that's not all! Ubuntu 12.04 also includes some brand new stuff like the HUD interface, a new dash look with new lenses, a revamped system monitor that includes privacy settings and the "management service" among other small functionalities here and there.
