continue to be available and updated.
=== Paul White: My Ubuntu week - old hardware, a VPS and Ubuntu GNOME ===
Paul White recounts work he has focused on over the past week on
several laptops he had running various flavors of Ubuntu. At the end

with the right flavour of Ubuntu until you push it to its limits but
it's nice to know that if one Ubuntu flavour doesn't work for you then
you can always try another."
