who leave the project. "No one needs to manage bug and branch
subscriptions to ensure trusted users have access to confidential

=== How Apple killed the Linux desktop ===

Klint Finely of WIRED magazine writes about how the Linux desktop
struggles to keep up with Apple's OS X. Finely points out the thoughts
of Miguel de Icaza regarding the failure of the Linux desktop: "The
real reason Linux lost is that developers started defecting to OS X
because the developers behind the toolkits used to build graphical
Linux applications didn't do a good enough job ensuring backward
compatibility between different versions of their APIs. For many
years, we broke people's code. OS X did a much better job of ensuring
backward compatibility."

=== The truth about Goobuntu: Google's in-house desktop Ubuntu Linux ===

markets."

=== The New 'Pure GNOME' Ubuntu Linux Is Coming This Fall ===

A new flavor of Ubuntu is coming this fall with GNOME 3 at its core. A
domain name and basic website have been set up at gnomebuntu.org,
though details, including its eventual name, remain elusive due to
trademark restrictions.

=== Canonical Drops Alternate CDs from Ubuntu 12.10 ===
