"pangolin," look it up

I just feel like thanking the folks at Canonical for an easy and impressive (and free) upgrade to their newest Ubuntu operating system, "Precise Pangolin." It makes our older computer perform like a new one. Everything works, it's pretty, it's Linux (so no worries about malware, etc), and did I mention it's free?

Years ago I mentioned open source software as an example of a "gift economy," and I'm just more and more impressed about what can be accomplished when people care more about the work than about making money from it.
