Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Good news for Ubuntu users: both GetDeb and PlayDeb websites are up and running again. Unfortunately there won't be any package updates this week:

We will not be able to update packages until we relocate the ABS and rebuild the reprepro db, this is something for another weekend.

Even though the websites were down, you could still install software from GetDeb / Playdeb repositories using a mirror but the websites are also importand for software discovery as well as their one-click install.

Unfortunately (at least for me), both websites are very slow for now. How do they work for you?
