Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1

Posted in Development Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

I knew some day, for sure, someone would come up with this idea of introducing a Ubuntu (Linux) operating systems for ASUS Eee PC, an ultra-light and mobile laptop, weighing barely 1kg. So, what do we have here? It’s Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1, powered and modded from Ubuntu.

From the original version of Ubuntu, the software has been streamlined and compressed to a lightweight operating system, specially meant for ASUS Eee PC. A brand new interface is introduced, following by a couple of fixes and enhanced hardware support. Hence, instead of installing the original version of Ubuntu, the Ubuntu Eee does fantastically well. This release supports various series, such as Eee 701 series, 2G, 900, 901, 1000 and 1000H models. Thus, there is no more worries when you need to install Ubuntu onto your Eee laptops now.

Google Chrome Dev Channel Chooser 1.0

Posted in Beta, Development Software, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

The latest release of Google Chrome version still considered as a beta software, albeit it might be running stable for 99% of the time. Google is very cautious at using the word “stable” as they did not want to perceive a release version to be buggy at any point in time.

To me, this latest version of Google Chrome works like a charm for me. However, to be adventurous, I suppose there must be some developing releases that we can try out, especially we know that Google Chrome is an open source web browser and users can even build them on their own.
