So planning has started underway for Ohio Ubucon '08! Started by Vorian, and a little push from the team, and so far the planning has been going pretty good. There are a couple of things we need to work out, mostly stuff like regular meeting times, and contacting and securing sponsors. We have a good list of ideas so far (everything of course available at the Wiki).

I found a new hardware retailer today that specializes in Ubuntu offerings, and I'm thinking about contacting them about sponsorship (think along the lines of System76). We still need some hardware rigs for our gaming center, and theming center, and still in need of a server. Actually, we really need a place to host it!

Back With Desktop Linux

I finally got my laptop fixed (with a slight small cosmetic problem, but it's on the bottom so no biggie) and now I can once again run omg lightning fast Pentium M! (That's a joke of course). But seriously, because I can now run it at full speed without any of the heat problems, I decided to slap back on Linux again on to my laptop. Now as I'm sure you can tell from the right, I have Ubuntu 7.10 Linux on my laptop, althouh I am thinking about also trying SLED 10 also. I was originally going to try openSuse 10.3, for the simple fact I had really liked 10.1 with KDE, but it seems from many recent reviews, that I might be better with a more stable offering such as SLED (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop).As of right now, it's still only Ubuntu, and Ubuntu's next release (due out in April) will be a Long Term Support release, meaning Ubuntu will support it for many years longer than most releases, meaning there's a bit more documentation and a lot more bug fixing, so I once the LTS is released I may very well stay with that one for a while.

Now enough rambling, here are some screenshots of my beautiful desktop. Remember, this is Linux.
