It has been a while since I wrote anything on the Linux releases. Today UBUNTU publishes its 9.10 release. It comes in many versions, Gnome, KDE, as well as several other variants.
Ubuntu is an African word meaning ‘Humanity to others’ and when it came into being, UBUNTU became the leading Linux for novices. It has done such a good job that it is becoming a force to be reckoned with by both Apple and Microsoft.
Next month openSUSE will come out with its release 11.2. While UBUNTU is a Gnome release, openSUSE is best known for its KDE release. KDE will be an easier migration for Microsoft Windows users. Its desktop layout won’t require the mental adjustment that the UBUNTU Gnome desktop will.
There are several other distributions that are based off the UBUNTU distribution. Most notable is Linux Mint and it is usually about 6 weeks behind each UBUNTU release. Linux Mint always appears to me to be a higher polished version of UBUNTU and is the one I keep running as one of my backup systems.
With the new releases of Mac Snow Leopard and Microsoft Windows7, it is always good to know that there are other “free” systems that will do what most people need to do without having to purchase anything.
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
The project is moving forward. One side hs the concrete poured.
The other side is still waiting. Continue reading Neighborhood Project October 26, 2009

I received a request to post the following.
I would like to know if you can post this on your web site.

Saturday there was an even at the Chiriquí Mall. One of the signs I saw called it the Relay race of life. A lot of the local businesses were involved. It was a nice time for a walk and it was for a good cause, children with cancer.
Here are some of the participants in the walk.
The inside of the mall had several photos of youngsters that had been affected and it was for children like this that the day was dedicated.
Here are some of the photos of children. These are similar to those I took a photo of in church not long ago. Continue reading Relay Race of Life

Subway closed its restaurant in the high rent area of Boquete and will open in Plaza El Terronal. It is to the left of the entrance to of Conway.
Subway used to be across the street from Super 99. That location closed several years ago.
I think they will get more traffic in their new location.
I had heard that Conway was going to open in November. I talked to some of the construction people and they said mid December. They have a lot of work to do to get the parking area cleaned up. Time will tell. At least the name is on the store, so that shows progress. http://www.chiriquichatter.net/blog/2009/07/23/plaza-el-terronal-phase-ii-2/
