This is an innovative single slide way of creating macromedia presentations. Recommended for offbeat new look presentations.
2) Xvidcap screencapture- For capturing and creating a video based on screen capture. This is the Linux Version of Camtasia- there is only one drawback the default rate is a bit fast- so audio and frame capture settings in a multi frame need to be tweaked.
3) I Phone- For Photography- It’s still the handiest camera around.

If you love your Apple iPhone / iPod, the latest release of Ubuntu from Canonical called Karmic Koala ( the counter part to Microsoft’s Windows 7) is totally compatible for USB connection

Ubuntu uses Rhythmbox for playing songs and uses FSpot and Gimp for images. The audio quality is excellent ( even if you are using very old hardware like I do) and Gimp is the best image manipulation software -comparable to ones from Adobe- intuitive and easy.
1) Rather than have an Icon for R – There is a seperate icon for RCmdr in Ubuntu Karmic Koala – Thus the default screen on opening is R Cmdr.
2) REvolution Computing has managed a coup with their bundling of their libraries with the R Distribution in Ubuntu Karmic Koala( see screenshot). We however still are waiting for who gets the credit for that ( Daneese Cooper or the long suffering Mr Smith)
3)Karmic Koala offers 2 GB free space for storing data in the cloud for every user and 50 GB at 10$ a month. This helps with your storage costs. Data is protected thanks to an oauth login id and machine specific tie-in.
4) RCmdr has a great new plugin for DOE (Design off Experiments) students. DOE is a powerful and under utilized technique especially in Web Analytics. This is promising given that Dr John Fox ( whom we interviewed on this website) has going on ahead and seems clearly to have established RCmdr as the introductory GUI for beginners to R.
(see screenshot 2 below)
5) The Karmic Koala is very easy to install and very intuitive to use- Don’t want to give up your Windows ( well just install a dual boot which takes less than 1 hour on a fast internet connection or 15 minutes if you have a DVD)
6) What are other Statistics softwares doing? If they are not too keen on helping Microsoft get more sales ( especially student OS licenses) why don’t they offer the Ubuntu version free for students ( and besides once and for all put to rest the open source credential controversy)
I am just about testing the Karmic Koala which is due for launch next week. There is significant amount of Browser Based Operating System in it- it seems like a Cloud OS and Firefox have been integrated. See the following screenshots-
Note the ability to send email from the toolbar itself- Also the system speeded up considerably after the upgrade was installed. The striking change was in design and folder structure (it seems that they analyzed the usage data in Canonical to decide what design feature to keep and what not to keep)
Here are more views, and yes the Website http://www.ubuntu.com just went for an upgrade maintenance to cope with next week’s heavy rush or downloading.
Caveat- this is just the beta version but 5 days before launch beta version generally stay faithful to design changes.
Visit http://www.ubuntu.com for a better look- I believe dual boot Windows 7 and Koala are supported that helps you with
trying Ubuntu for fun and Windows for your original work.
