We will celebrate the launch of the new version of Ubuntu.

If the weather is nice, there will be a barbecue but it is the best if you bring your own food.

I will try to get some DVDs/CDs from Canonical so everyone can get one for free.

Involve non-linux users

As Ubuntu is probably the most popular GNU/Linux version for beginners and switchers it would be a great contribution to the free software & culture world, if we could get new people involved with Linux. So what is left to do?

As already mentioned, providing folks with enough Ubuntu CDs as well as a information sheet with helpful information about the beginning or switching to GNU/Linux. A few boxes with prepared operating systems would be recommendable as well. A small presentation about GNU/Linux, the philosophy and the main features of Ubuntu. Don't forget the kids - there are very good educational an games applications for the youngsters.

At the end we can call it an evening.


Invitation letter

Ladies and Gentlemen,
dear syn<sub>2</sub>cat Members, Linux-Lovers and other Hackers,

On April 29th we will celebrate the release of Ubuntu 11.04 at the
syn2cat Hackerspace in Strassen [0].

As last year, we shall adjust to the times and have an early barbecue
if the weather permits. (Maybe some different food if it doesn't.)
There will also be alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at very
affordable prices.

Other than last year, we're looking into having some programme along
the party such as talks, workshops and potentially some entertainment
for the young and older hackers.

I'd like to profit of this opportunity to join a Call for Proposals to
this invitation and I'd kindly ask you to email your suggestions for
talks or workshops either to me or to info@hackerspace.lu

More, and semi-regularly updated, info will be at your disposal on our
wiki [1].

Looking forward to seeing you in April!
