Ubuntu 9.10 since it’s release has caused quite a storm in the linux community both good and bad. While Ubuntu 9.10 is the latest and greatest release of the Linux distro there have been a few slight issues with Ubuntu 9.10.

After months and months of development and input, the website project Anti Tables goes live! You may remember a post a while back talking about Anti Tables (View post here) well the project still continued, but development dramatically expanded after a few months and the site was taken down to continue the development. The original plan was to release Anti Tables in 2008 and then start building up content and aiming to get a decent amount of traffic by 2009.
