ruphus13 (890164) writes "Ubuntu and Canonical have been very active at OSCON this year. They showcased a new distro. From the article, "Ubuntu Netbook Remix, a complete distribution designed to run on Atom-based Netbook PCs. The main difference that sets it apart from it's big brother Hardy Heron is the Ubuntu Mobile Edition (UME) Launcher, a user interface created specifically for use on the teensy screens and keyboards of today's popular ultra-portable computers." Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, also announced Version 2.0 of Launchpad, their code-hosting platform. Enhancements include "a planned API that'll allow third-party applications to authenticate, query and modify data in the massive Launchpad database, without a user needing to manually access the system via a browser". Mark Shuttleworth went on to state that Linux market share will grow when it has better eye-candy than Apple, so we can expect slicker UIs for Desktop Linux!"
