I've just done a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04. During the installation slide-show, I noticed that on the browser slide it displayed a segment of the wikipedia page for Rosetta Stone. Any idea what the relevance is to Ubuntu?

Its just a page? – Bruno Pereira Mar 12 '12 at 9:50
I don't believe it is just a page. – hayd Mar 12 '12 at 11:40

This is just a web-page showing that there is a built-in web-browser called Firefox...

From this bug-report the representation of "web" was discussed - one proposal for later versions of ubuntu was the One Laptop per Child

enter image description here

From that bug report - it's going to be interesting if this "web" part of the slideshow will be updated to OLPC for 12.04.

If you were looking for a left field answer - the Ubiquity developers were presenting a subliminal message about Launchpad's Online translation tool called Rosetta aka "Rosetta Stone".

Either way I wouldnt read too much into this.

N.B. if you are interested in installing Rosetta Stone - according to wineHQ the older versions of Rosetta works well in Wine.

Why would you argue it is just a random page? Seems a missed opportunity is that is the case. (I have Rosetta Stone installed already and it work great!) – hayd Mar 12 '12 at 11:44
... ok - a little more concrete answer! – fossfreedom Mar 12 '12 at 11:52
