Before you share your thoughts about the above proposal, I have great news
I thought it is better to wait until something 'more serious' happen but I
guess I must share it now. Great news to the point that I have finally
managed to sleep after 2 weeks of not being able to sleep, thinking about
Lubuntu days and nights. Yes, I am not kidding, I adore this system and I
breathe Lubuntu. These news made me sleep, finally :D

I have spoken to someone who showed an interest and didn't hesitate one
second to offer full help and support. Not going to mention any names until
we receive an email about that hopefully soon.

Lubuntu Community may soon receive a massive help and support that could
really change the future of this system and this community (users + members
of lubuntu) in a good and positive way.

The proposal is not yet done or sent. However, I can assure you, things
will be better and better.

Just have some faith and patience. That is all what I am asking.

Many thanks :)
