=== Ubuntu Core Desktop on the Nexus 7: Getting Involved ===

Jono Bacon writes that the efforts to getting the core components in
Ubuntu working and optimized for the Nexus 7 tablet are underway, and
there are many ways those interested in helping out can get involved.
Developers can help by fixing bugs, optimizing software, and other
tasks that benefit the Ubuntu Core Desktop on the tablet. Testers are
also needed to run benchmarks and report bugs.

infrastructure.

== In The Press ==

=== Devs port Ubuntu to Rockchip (RK3066) devices ===
Trent Nouveau for TG Daily reports on the progress being made by
developers, especially AndrewDB, to port Ubuntu to run on the UG802
and other devices ported by Rockport's RK3066 chip. Most of these
devices ship with Google Android due to limited access to the source
code. While Ubuntu 12.10 on the UG802 is still a work in progress, it
does already support 1080p monitors using the integrated HDMI port.

=== Ubuntu gaining ground in website deployments ===

Neil McAllister of the Register reports on statistics from W3Techs
that states that 7% of the world's web servers are now using Ubuntu.
This is an increase from 5.5% in the previous year. When adjusted to
only include servers known to be using some version of Linux, this
means Ubuntu is now used for 21.4% of Linux servers. McAllister does
also mention that W3Tech was unable to identify which OS were used for
many websites so these numbers are not perfect.

=== Ubuntu 12.10 review ===

Darien Graham-Smith reviews Ubuntu 12.10 for PC Pro. He points out new
features such as the option on a clean install to encrypt the entire
installation disk using a passphrase, and support for LVM volumes. He
also comments on the increased integration of Web applications to the
Dash and the expansion of Ubuntu One for cloud syncing and storage
(and the beta for the native OS X Ubuntu One client). He discusses the
change to rendering desktop graphic effects on the CPU when there is
no compatible GPU driver. He does comment that on low-power machines,
this can slow performance. Ultimately, he concludes that unless you're
using an older or low-powered machine, Ubuntu 12.10 is a worthwhile
place to start for a new user, but may not have enough new features to
be worth the upgrade from 12.04 for an existing user.

== In The Blogosphere ==

=== Will 2013 Be the Year of the Ubuntu Desktop? ===

In an article title that he admits many readers will "likely groan
at", Matt Hartley of Datamation speculates why he believes 2013 could
be a "huge year for Linux on the desktop." Points include: many
successes in 2012, improvements to Ubuntu which include interest from
gaming developers such as Valve, and the role that money plays.
Hartley concludes by answering his question and saying "I, with
countless others, have made it a personal mission to make every year
an Ubuntu celebration instead."

=== New Animated 'Ubuntu For Android' Ad Hits the Web ===

Joey-Elijah Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! reports on a new Ubuntu for
Android advertisement that was released this week, but that the code
for it is still not available to contributors. Sneddon speculates "Is
its appearance a subtle prelude to a formal announcement? Is an
Ubuphone finally in the offing? Logical Joey says 'probably not'. It's
more likely that the ad was released to sustain and build on the
awareness already generated for the technology. This pent-up demand
could then be used by Canonical in negotiations with vendors
interesting in rolling with it."

== In Other News ==

=== ZaReason's Ubuntu All-in-One PC Might Look A Little Familiar... ===

Joey-Elijah Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! reviews ZaReason's new Zimo 930,
an all-in-one PC that uses the same physical shell as the System76
Sable released earlier this year. Sneddon writes, that both "have
21.5'' screens, Intel Graphics, 4GB of RAM, and an Intel i5 CPU. To
stand out a little the Zimo has a marginally more powerful processor
(a quad-core3.1Ghz i5 to the Sable's quad-core 2.9Ghz i5); a 64GB SSD
in place of a mechanical hard-drive; and a few extra ports." Prices
for the systems similarly speced out are equivalent.

=== Burning Circle Episode 91 ===

Stephen Michael Kellat from the Ohio Local Community Team is back and
talks this week about the geographical challenges facing the Ohio team
in terms of coming together. Examples are offered of practical
difficulties faced such as in bringing people together across the
northeast quadrant of the state of Ohio, even though population
centers like Cleveland and Youngstown are found there. Unlike normal
episodes, an uncorrected draft copy of the speaking script text is
posted along with the episode audio to aid the team's governing High
Council in sharing such reflections with the LoCo Council among others
uses.
