Ubuntu is composed of many software packages, the vast majority of which are distributed under a free software license. The only exceptions are some proprietary hardware drivers.The main license used is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which, along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL), explicitly declares that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software. On the other hand, there is also proprietary software available that can run on Ubuntu. Ubuntu focuses on usability, security and stability. The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation. Ubuntu also emphasizes accessibility and internationalization to reach as many people as possible.

Ubuntu Design: Media, Pictograms and Illustration.

Media.
As much as possible, pictograms and other visual media, such as videos, illustrations and photography, should be sized so that they align with and fit within the grid columns.

Pictograms.
You can use pictograms to provide a visual summary of the content of a page or the general theme of a row.

It’s important to use them sparingly, as their overuse can make a page look heavy and unbalanced.

Pictograms can be downloaded from the Ubuntu Design site and should only be used in the Ubuntu Palette Colours.

Illustration.
The official illustrations used in www.ubuntu.com and other Ubuntu sites are commissioned and/or created by Canonical, for use in specific contexts and design material.

PRICE was born to support my research in image processing. So I have decided to work on a usable application that can open several file formats and apply high quality filters and other enhancements to the image.

Make Grayscale.
Converts the image to greyscale, this calculates the luminosity of each pixel by averaging red, green and blue values.

Since currently many filters work on grayscale images only, this is useful.

Convolve 5x5.
The "small" convolution engine is now ready and functional. By entering a 5x5 matrix you can specify a FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filter that will be applied on the image. Since usually the dynamic range will exceed the available 8 bit range, you can either specify an offest and a scale (the over or undershooting will be clipped) or activate the autoscale algorithm.

20 Ubuntu Derivatives You Should Know About

Whether you like Ubuntu or not, it is here to stay. Ubuntu has contributed a lot to the Linux community in sparking interest in new Linux users and opening the doors to “ease-of-use” Linux. Their Influence has spread throughout the Linux community sparking new distributions.

Here are 20 of them you should know about:

Mint

Link: http://www.linuxmint.com/

Linux Mint’s purpose is to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution.

Linux MintLinux Mint is one of the surprise packages of the past year. Originally launched as a variant of Ubuntu with integrated media codecs, it has now developed into one of the most user-friendly distributions on the market - complete with a custom desktop and menus, several unique configuration tools, a web-based package installation interface, and a number of different editions. Perhaps most importantly, this is one project where the developers and users are in constant interaction, resulting in dramatic, user-driven improvements with every new release. DistroWatch has spoken to the founder and lead developer of Linux Mint, Clement Lefebvre, about the history of the distribution.

Kubuntu

Link: http://www.kubuntu.org/

KubuntuKubuntu is the KDE version of Ubuntu. This version comes packed with the KDE window manager instead of Gnome.

Kubuntu is a free, user-friendly operating system based on the K Desktop Environment and on the award winning Ubuntu operating system. With a biannual release cycle and at least 18 months of free security updates for each release, it is the secure, stable computing environment you’ve been waiting for. Take the tour or hear what our users have to say.

So basically if you like Ubuntu and prefer the KDE window manager you might want to install this instead of Ubuntu. It will save you the time of downloading and installing KDE and switching window managers.

Edubuntu

Link: http://edubuntu.org/

Edubuntu’s objective is to create an integrated and usable experience for educational users by enhancing Ubuntu with educational applications, tools, content, and themes.

This means there will be no firmware, drivers, applications, or content included in Gobuntu that does not include the full source or whose license does not provide the right to use, study, modify, and redistribute the body of work.

Gobuntu shares the same system requirements as Ubuntu. At present, this means Gobuntu is available for 32-bit and 64-Bit PC architectures and the install requires at least 4 GB of disk space.
