Mozilla Firefox 1.0.5 Released!

To everyone out there using the wonderful Mozilla Firefox web browser. Mozilla has released an updated version (1.0.5), addressing a few critical security holes, and some stability problems. I always, update my systems like a madman every time an update is issued (If you’re on Windows you should do that too), not so much of a security concerns (Again if you run Windows you ALWAYS will have security concerns INMO) but just to have the latest and greatest.

You can find the new updated Firefox at mozilla.org, and if you, like me, run SUSE Linux (9.0 – 9.3) you can find RPMs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0.5 at ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/mozilla/firefox/1.0.5

Linux From Scratch 6.1 Released

“Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own custom Linux system, entirely from source code.”

If you wanna be a hardcore UNIX/Linux system administrator, and a lot of free time to learn stuff during a holiday, LFS is the way to go IMHO 😉
I need to try this someday to improve what I learned from playing with, and using, Gentoo Linux 😀

New Ubuntu Foundation Announced

“Mark Shuttleworth and Canonical Ltd, founders of the popular Ubuntu Linux-based operating system, have today announced the creation of The Ubuntu Foundation with an initial funding commitment of US$10m.

The Ubuntu Foundation will employ core Ubuntu community members to ensure that Ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com) will remain fully supported for an extended period of time, and continue to produce new releases of the distribution. As a first step, the Foundation announces that Ubuntu version 6.04, due for release in April 2006, will be supported for three years on the desktop and five years on the server.”

This sure is a good step in the right direction, Ubuntu is one of my favourite Linux distributions, I sure would like to see it widely adopted for business use.
