Billie, please post that kind of "news" to the sounder list
<https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/sounder>. It isn't related to
Kubuntu.

Default Linux or Open Source

"The name of this blog is “Linux and open source” but the question
Microsoft wants you to ask yourself is, simply, Linux *or *open source?"

<snip>

"It’s now quite easy to run a Windows box in which the only proprietary
program you have is Windows. Open Office, Firefox, Thunderbird, The
Gimp, and Google together make for a pretty nice office suite.

So the release of a Windows Installer for Ubuntu LTS 8.04
<http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/hardy/beta>(Hardy Heron) is more than
“very cool.” It’s a turning point.

Once you get the Windows installer, and the Hardy Heron flies, you
really need to try those open source applications you’re used to in
their native habitat."
