    Default Ubuntu Plans To Make It Easier To Hookup With Users

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Plans To Make It Easier To Hookup With Users

    Plans were talked about this morning for how to make Ubuntu more social and make it easier for Ubuntu users to find and meet-up with fellow Ubuntu users in their community. An Ubuntu social network?..

    KDE already has this. Just add the Social Desktop Plasmoid to your Desktop and you'll be shown other nearby users etc. But I'll bet ya Ubuntu will completely ignore these existing apis and infrastructure, as they always do.

    so maybe in a couple of years from now there will be pornbuntu, with zeitgeist scanning your porn related search entries, and choosing your best partners for a good shag. Ubuntu Music store will be expanded to porn videos, live chat...

    i dont think the idea is quite a bad one, but as stated, if theres such things already.. i just think manpower could be used differently for now. please finish what you started first. or is unity considered ready?
    *sigh* im getting tired of this...

    are there more ubuntu "news" to come?
    how about coreboot? are there finally some MBs that ship with it by default? maybe someone who simply sells bios chips with preinstalled coreboot?

    If Big Brother's going to track/index all my info, he should at least get me laid. That's what brothers are for!

    Hi. I'm Mark Shuttleworth. I'm here to talk about a serious issue today: libido. Are sexual frustrations distracting you from working on Ubuntu? We'll send a geeky dominatrix to choke you with a SATA cable (or PATA ribbon for you older folks..). And ladies, when you need a guy who can fill all your ports with high-speed devices, we've got you covered! You'll be back to filing bug reports in no time! Just $19.95/month ($9.95 if you can actually convince a friend to use Unity) and we'll make you forget about flesh pleasure and put your head back in the Cloud.

    (I'll stop there. Sorry).

    I dont think you have attended the session.

    This is entirely community sponsored and anyone can help.

    I already went ahead and linked the Social-desktop initiative. It should help avoid duplicating some items and get started faster.

    If anyone else wants to collaborate, design or code they can.
