NetworkWorld: It's a long weekend - you've got something better to do ?
The open source community is packed full of intriguing projects and companies, so much so that even the biggest of proprietary vendors have moved to embrace it.
Ubuntu is one of those open source projects that has developed a wide-spread following.
Ubuntu is an open source Linux distribution based on Debian, which is a freely available operating system that uses the Linux kernel.
Initially developed for personal computers, it has developed to being used on servers, and smartphones.
Development of Ubuntu is led by Canonical, a UK based company that was founded by Mark Shuttleworth.
To put things into a fair perspective, keep in mind that we are talking about a computer that costs $25 or so and can be used with a display, keyboard and mouse which a lot of people are going to have on hand already. That means for a very small amount of money, you can have a very nice computer running one of the most popular Linux distributions. Some people (including me) might argue that there are really not many (or any) significant advantages of Ubuntu MATE over Raspbian, but even I can't deny that MATE looks more polished, and if you are accustomed to Ubuntu in general or MATE in particular, then this distribution is the way to go.

softpedia: Sabayon jumps on the ARM bandwagon with its latest Sabayon ARM project
With my older 8500-series HP printer I could configure the destination for scan-to-PC and fax-to-PC to be a standard Samba/CIFS shared folder, from the web UI.
Can anyone using one of the more recent models confirm that the "HP Digital Fax" functionality can be configured as before in the web UI? The documentation (for seems to imply this now requires a Windows/Mac system (and dedicated HP software).
I've asked on HP's forum too, hopefully this is still as easy to configure as before.submitted by /u/magicfab
