Contact Lookup Applet (Fame And Glory)

Posted by Ross Burton on September 17, 2004

The totally wonderful (some would even say "rad", but not me!) Ubuntu Linux became the first distribution I know of to ship contact-lookup-applet this week, when WartyWarthog was released in preview form. This did tickle my funny bone, as Ximian/Novell paid for its development via a Bounty. I've been informed [updated, thanks Luis] it will be in Novell Linux Desktop (due "soon") and SuSe 9.2, and there are rumours it will be in FC3 too.

What more proof do you need that RPM-based distributions are inferior?
