Ubuntu Backports and PLF Repositories

I haven’t been focusing on Linux during that last couple of months, I was a bit distracted completing my home cinema installation and ever since I have been watching a lot of films :-)

However, I needed to get one of my laptops up to date for the Christmas holidays and in doing so needed some packages from the Ubuntu Backports repository, which led me to find the Ubuntu Penguin Liberation Front.

The Ubuntu PLF is a team that builds packages that are patent encumbered or proprietary. The PLF has been providing litigious packages for Mandriva for many years and now they are doing the same thing for Ubuntu :-) Having added the Breezy Backports and PLF repositories (just about) everything I consider essential for my desktop needs is now apt-getable, yah!
