Chromium on the other hand does not have any such issues. It just works
We have seen our fair share of Android devices running Ubuntu already, like the Nexus S or the NOOKcolor but to see it running on that large beautiful 10″ display on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and pushed by that dual-core CPU makes this a little more interesting.
Having Linux run on an Android tablet with a 1280×800 resolution makes for a much better and clearer viewing experience from what users booting to Linux have seen in the past. It is not natively installed and will be running over Android but the overall speed and responsiveness seems pretty great from the video posted. You’ll need a bluetooth keyboard and mouse if you want to dive in and run Ubuntu on your own Galaxy Tab.
Good news for those that want to try this themselves, Android users have the method for booting to Linux down pretty well so the instructions shouldn’t be that bad for most looking to give this a whirl. Obviously you will need to be rooted and know that you need to still be careful when doing these types of mods to your device. For all the details, instructions and downloads head down to the source to get started. Here’s a video of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 running Linux while you’re here.
The next major release of Ubuntu-based operating system ‘elementary’ is to be based on Ubuntu 12.04 and not Ubuntu 11.10 as originally expected.
Disappointed? Don’t be. The shunt to the next Long-term support release of Ubuntu will provide elementary developers with an extended timeframe in which to polish, code and test the ‘Pantheon’ desktop shell, as well as provide Luna users with a more throughly-tested and stable base.
Amongst the applications and components expected to ship with Luna are the elementary-developed file browser ‘Marlin’, music application ‘Beatbox‘, application launcher ‘Slingshot’ and developer-friendly System Settings pane ‘Switchboard‘.

The ‘Ribbon’ interface Microsoft introduced with Office 2007 provided an innovative approach to the use and layout of toolbars in applications.
Following the release, OpenOffice toyed with the idea of creating a similar ‘tabbed toolbar’ concept for use with its own office suite. Whilst the mock-ups and discussions never bore much in the way of fruit for OpenOffice the idea of a ‘ribbon’ for use in open-sources apps hasn’t been abandoned.
The project is only “half way there” at present, but George told us that it should be “100% completed” within a month or so, at which time the source code will be released.
Work so far
Being built on open standards, and being open-source itself, the ‘Ribbon control’ looks the same in a web-browser on Linux as it does in a web-browser on Windows: -
The aping of anything linked to Microsoft will irk a minority, but the beauty of freedom means if you don’t like something you don’t have to use it. Personally, I look forward to seeing what kinds of web apps make use of George’s Ribbon control.
Twitter is a powerful platform for websites to share their content, and drive traffic and engagement. However, people have struggled to accurately measure the amount of traffic Twitter is sending to their websites, in part because web analytics software hasn’t evolved as quickly as online sharing and social signals.
Today we’re announcing Twitter Web Analytics, a tool that helps website owners understand how much traffic they receive from Twitter and the effectiveness of Twitter integrations on their sites. Twitter Web Analytics was driven by the acquisition of BackType, which we announced in July.
The product provides three key benefits:
Twitter Web Analytics will be rolled out this week to a small pilot group of partners, and will be made available to all website owners within the next few weeks. We’re also committed to releasing a Twitter Web Analytics API for developers interested in incorporating Twitter data in their products.
