Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

And here it is: now I can stop saying the new Sound Indicator in Ubuntu 10.10 is the ugliest thing that ever walked the Earth (ok, not that bad but I really didn't like it):

Not only it looks great, but finally there is some consistency with the Ambiance theme. Unfortunately the buttons look the same with the Radiance theme (but it's still better then before):

The package has been uploaded to Launchpad and is currently building so if you are running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, expect an update with the new Sound Indicator soon!
