Canonical Updates Ubuntu Linux with 7.04 Release
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The latest iteration of the Ubuntu Linux distribution was put out by Canonical yesterday, including both a new desktop and server distribution at release 7.04. Ubuntu is, of course, itself an offshoot of the Debian Linux distro, which is just about to release its own update, code-named "Etch." READ MORE >

Intel Details Future 45 Nanometer Chip Plans from Beijing
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Rather than host its semi-annual Intel Developer Forum in its home stomping grounds of San Francisco, chip maker Intel is making the politically and economically significant move of hosting the spring IDF this week in Beijing, the capitol of China. Intel has 6,000 employees doing research and final testing and assembly at facilities in China, and has just inked a deal with the government to build Fab 68, a 300 mm chip factory, in northern China. To say that China is important to Intel--and indeed, to all IT players--is an understatement. READ MORE >

Dell, IBM Push Power-Saving Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Server makers Dell and IBM are looking to use the power efficiency of their respective PowerEdge and System x X64-based server lines as a means of stealing business from each other and their competitors. Dell has even gone so far as to carve out a specific energy efficient server line, dubbed Energy Smart, from its general purpose machines. IBM seems content to offer power saving options on its System x machines as well as building features for controlling power use into every machine. READ MORE >

As I See It: The Legacy
by Victor Rozek

An accomplished man, perhaps a great one, died recently. Certainly he was a man who exerted great influence on the computing industry and the people in it. He had one of those rare minds whose contributions helped shape the future, in his case by domesticating what was previously a primitive collection of magnetic drums, cathode-ray tubes, tape units, and card readers. By putting the power of a wizardly but cumbersome and elitist device into the hands of the many, he literally accelerated human progress. Yet most people don't know his name. READ MORE >

Correction: Canonical Controls Ubuntu, Not the Ubuntu Foundation

The story, Canonical Updates Ubuntu Linux with 7.04 Release, has been corrected since it first ran. We said that the Ubuntu Foundation controls the development process for Ubuntu and that Canonical delivers the commercial variant of the Ubuntu distribution. This is not correct. Canonical controls the distro and the Ubuntu Foundation is an endowment to ensure that Ubuntu can outlive Canonical. We also said that Ubuntu has much broader support for VMware's server virtualization products than it actually has. For instance, Ubuntu Linux is not supported as a guest operating system on the ESX Server 2.X or 3 hypervisors, nor is it supported on earlier releases of GSX Server, according to VMware. IT Jungle regrets these errors. [Corrected 04/19/07]
