Ubuntu...why are you so newsworthy this week....

There are a bunch of different stories around one of our favorite Linux Distros this week.  In the podcast we talked about Shuttleworth saying he is thinking about dropping Firefox for Chrome.  As with most things like this we don't think it's a big deal because you can always just install Firefox after you have installed the machine.  We also talked about Matt Asay's article in the Register giving them a hard time about still chasing the declining Netbook market.  We agree and think they could be spending their time in better ways.  Canonical seems to be spreading itself extremely thin.  From Cloud plays to Netbooks to Music stores all seems a bit much.  We are sure they will work it out but a little focus would just make it all happen faster.
