I serendipitously happened across this beautiful image while browsing the web. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Mark Shuttleworth rendered the image in orbit using povray! The image was apparently inspired by Exupery’s Little Prince.

Like so many stories today, it started with an email exchange…

Read all about it if you like!

I’d love to have the poster, would look awesome on any wall!

Oh, and Happy New Year to all my readers!

Die Knstler und die Entstehungsgeschichte sind unter oyonale.com und ignorancia.org zu finden.

If you want to be rid of Unity you have to go to one of the other desktop spins, unsles there’s some trick I don’t know for getting Gnome without Unity in Ubuntu 11.4. Kubuntu and Xubuntu are both possibilities, and can be installed into Ubuntu without a full reinstall, via the kubuntu-desktop and xubuntu-desktop meta-packages. I have all three on one of my Ubuntu installs and I can switch desktops on every login. Use the desktop chooser menu in the GDM (default Ubuntu graphical login) dialog box, after choosing username but before entering your password.KDE has its own quirks, but is generally a little more like Windows and less like Mac or a phone launcher than Gnome or Unity, respectively. YMMV.XFCE is lightweight. If you want a minimal window manager that does the basics and stays out of your way the rest of the time, it’s a good pick. I used it mostly on older hardware where resources were too tight for KDE or Gnome.I haven’t tried Enlightenment in years, so I can’t much speak to it. It was pretty good back then, so may be worth a try.
