=== Minimal Ubuntu for the cloud delivers some maximum benefits ===

In a glowing review of the Ubuntu ecosystem, Twain Taylor debuts Minimal
Ubuntu. The new variant is designed for automated deployment at scale
that is available across a wide range of cloud substrates. Twain goes
into detail of the difference and proponents of this minimal install and
notes that it contains all the tools of the standard Ubuntu and remains
fully compatible with the Ubuntu archive. He points out the huge cloud
market and remarks that Ubuntu Minimal, for many seeking a fast
lightweight alternative, will hit that sweet spot.

=== How Canonical Is Improving Ubuntu Linux Security ===

Sean Michael Kerner tells us of his interview with Mark Shuttleworth on

cryptocurrency mining incursion and recent Meltdown/Spectre CPU security
vulnerabilities. We are assured the technologies in place mitigate the
risks. A short primer is given of the measures employed.

the Linux kernel 4.19 is out. The version will ship with Terminal Fault
(L1TF aka Foreshadow) fixes, as well as the usual updated drivers for
graphics, networking and other improvements. Linux 4.19 is expected to

because 3.26 still supports desktop icons. Though 18.10 will ship
without the enhanced Nautilus 3.30, Joey tells of a possible Flatpak
alternative.
