Ubuntu Wants Your Opinion On Scopes and Colors

The team is looking to “gather information about how people perceive colours and use Scopes.” The short questionnaire is split into two sections: colour and Scopes. The section on colours …well you don’t really need me to explain […]

Does Ubuntu Browser Need a New Icon?

webbrowser-appTo the right are a bunch of familiar looking web browser icons. Familiar, and yet also very similar. All four icons use a compass motif. A red-tipped needle points north-east and south-west, presumably in the direction of l33t web 1.0 content. All four icons are are predominantly draped in shades of blue (the unofficial colour of the internet thanks […]

How Do You Pronounce Ubuntu?

how-to-say-ubuntuYou all know the the word ‘Ubuntu’’ — and if you don’t, how’d you end up here?! — but do you know the correct way to pronounce it? Is it Oo-boon-too? Uh-bun-too? You-bun-too? Urgh-ban-too? Pedants will (quite rightly) that there is one correct way to pronounce Ubuntu and that’s “oo-boon-too”. But I’m here to say those people are (sort of) […]

GNOME Has Big Plans for Its System Monitor Tool

gnome system monitor redesignHow often do you use GNOME System Monitor?  I (thankfully) don’t. The only time I do is when a background process is going rogue… But if GNOME’s designers manage to implement a proposed top-to-bottom redesign of the app comes, that could change.

Does Your Ubuntu PC Look This Cool?

PC cases for the most part look like… Well, look like a word I shouldn’t use on this site.

But with a bit of imagination, some paint, and plenty of LEDs a boring box can be transformed into a terrific-looking tower. Just like the following: a planned case mod by Ubuntu ISO tester Jackson Doak.

A render of Jackson’s dream Ubuntu PC Case Mod

Based on a Power Mac case, Jackson aims to use plenty of orange, plenty of LEDs and possibly even orange-coloured liquid as part of a water cooling system. The completed system will be used to test daily ISOs – so not only will it look Ubuntu, it’ll be helping Ubuntu, too.

Admittedly the size of the case means that it’s not quite as sublime as the mini Ubuntu PC concept we showed you a year back, but it is delicious enough to have my mouth-watering.

Head over to Jackson’s blog for the full skinny on his plans and if you’ve seen any awesome case mods – Ubuntu related or not – feel free to share them in the comments.
