The Arizona Ubuntu Linux Local Community Team and the Phoenix Linux Users Group would like to help you get the most out of your computer. If you are tired of paying for an Operating System that gets slower as time goes by. If you are tired of an Operating System that gets Viruses, Trojan Horses, Spy Ware, and other Malware. If you want to get more life out of that old PC that just can't seem to keep up: we may have a FREE solution for you. Linux is a free, stable, and complete Operating System that doesn't have the issues that some of the most popular systems have.
Anything related to our team.
We are glad to announce the UofA / AZ LoCo / PLUG Installfest at the U of A Computer Science Dept.
in the atrium of a building and floor to be announced shortly. We will be doing full installs and answering Open Source software questions from 10 am to 4 pm. Please RSVP if you are able to attend or need help with anything. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved with us and to have fun meeting other open sourcer's.
Keep checking back for more details as they become available.
It has been forever in getting back here but sometimes life moves a little quicker than your ability to step.
My system is presently on overhaul and will have the needed parts in about 3 weeks.
I have been keep up with Windows 7. I was a bit bit taken back about Ubuntu's switch to Unity on it's future versions of Ubuntu. I am not opposed to the move entirely but it does place some concern in canonical's relationship with the GNOME project. I tried the 10.10 netbook edition on a HP Mini 210 and had a great deal of issue with the touchpad. A USB mouse would have corrected it but my expectations are that the touchpad should work out of the box.
Moving forward, Unity has a very simple interface but on this occasion, very labored. There will have to be some work. I look forward to 11.04. I don't think this should be something to jump ship on. I give Ununtu their props for moving forward with their own GUI. It's a brazen move but I look forward to the results.
Software Freedom Day is coming up again soon. PLUG and the AZ LoCo will be working together to do something to celebrate this. If you are interested at all in helping with this please let Scott Gwin know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and/or emailing Dennis Kibbe at email@example.com. More info can be found at:
http://softwarefreedomday.org/ . Info may be coming in the near future at the PLUG website: http://plug.phoenix.az.us/.
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.
The team meeting has been changed back to 2100 MST again due to the request of many team members and a vote taken in the meeting. Please join us - it's fun and it's your opportunity to voice your wants/needs/opinions about how this LoCo is run. It's also a fun way to get involved, to get acquainted, and to find out what is happening with this Ubuntu and this LoCo.
I was late in ordering our 10.04 CDs but they arrived today. If you want/need Ubuntu/Kubuntu/ and/or Server CDs please respond to this email with your Name and shipping address. It would also be nice if you could help with the cost of shipping as it will cost me to send them to you. In the PHX valley they will be available free at upcoming Installfest and PLUG east side meeting and east side Stammtische.
