New things to play with!

The last couple of weeks have been packed with new things to play with!

First of all, Firefox 2 was released. Congrats to everyone involved in getting that out the door!

Secondly, Apple released new MacBook Pro laptops with Core 2 Duo processors. I’m ordering one to replace my aging PowerBook G4 which is my personal machine (I use a G5 tower for work most of the time these days). They look really awesome and I can’t wait for it to arrive!

Third, Fedora Core 6 has been released. I have been using and working on various versions of Red Hat and Fedora Linux for quite a few years now and it is always fun to see how it progresses. I’m sure some time in the next month I’ll stay up until 4 AM tinkering with this new release, just as I have been doing since I was in high school.

Fourth, the new Ubuntu Linux (6.10) has been released. I’m sure a night in the near future will be devoted to playing with this new release just like Fedora Core 6, except Ubuntu wasn’t around when I was in high school so its sort of a newer tradition! Ubuntu is probably the most innovative and impressive Linux distribution in existence right now, so I’m really excited.

Fifth, Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 was released. I hear Microsoft put a lot of effort into this and I am intensely curious about it. Regardless of how it stacks up against Firefox, I’m expecting good things.

If only *every* couple of weeks we got all this great new stuff!

  1. IE7 is going to confuse people like crazy. The menus (file, edit, tools, etc) are off by default, and even I find that a bit unnerving. It’s just hard to find where anything is anymore.
