Seeing through windows

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 needs Volunteers!!

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 j.scott.gwin@ubuntu.com and/or emailing Dennis Kibbe at denninsk@linuxquestions.net. 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.

Sunday night meeting

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.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS CDs are now available.

Hey everyone,

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.

The Early-Summer LoCo BBQ at hutchnate's house was a tasty success!

This past Saturday, July 10 we had a get-together at Nate Hutchings house. It was loosely organized at the last minute and it was a tasty good time. In attendance were flakeparadigm and a bud jawee, Hatthew Helmke, lenards, my friend mathewmpp and myself. Though it would have been very nice to see more of the team in attendance we weren't lacking anyhting. We had planty of good conversation and Nate cooked up tasty hot dogs, hamburgers, bratts and topped it off with a wonderfully smoky blueberry crumble desert.

scott_ev goes up for Ubuntu Membership

Hey all,

I am finally scheduled to go in front of the ubuntu Membership Board on Tuesday 6th at 13:00 AZ time in #ubuntu-meeting. It would be great if you would show your support by attending this meeting and showing me your support. You can help my chances of being granted membership on the first try by editing my wiki and adding an endorsement for membership. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/j.scott.gwin This will also show you a little about the process of getting yourself ready to apply for Ubuntu membership yourself.
