Xubuntu Stickers, Twitter and Site Update

Last month I took over as the Marketing and Website Lead for Xubuntu. Thanks to the rest of the team for supporting me! There have been several ideas floating around the Marketing wiki page so I decided to start here and make some laptop-worthy Xubuntu stickers. I went with Moo.com because I really liked the […]

Xubuntu Website Sprint on Saturday November 19th at 22:00 UTC

Several months ago I tossed up a devel site on one of my servers so Pasi Lallinaho and I could get to work on the newly planned Xubuntu website. He blogged about it with a teaser here back in August. It’s taken some time, but we now have a formal staging server on one of […]

Xubuntu Edgy

I installed Xubuntu Edgy on my primary desktop today, replacing Debian Testing. I was quite stubborn about this change, always finding some excuse to stick with Debian, but ultimately I just got to the point where the pros of switching to Ubuntu outweighted the cons. Plus I wanted to check out Thunar! After years of […]
