Nope, we had a great little release party in Vancouver last night, despite
the fact that the official release date was pushed back. The attendees
were myself, Graeme, and Kalin. Only two out of the three of us were
Ubuntu users but the third (Graeme) used Debian/Gnome so we teased him a
bit for not switching. :-) All in good fun. Stayed out a bit late for a
weeknight though, didn't leave the pub until about 1:30am!!
We booted up a fairly recent version of Hoary on Kalin's lovely PPC
laptop, and raised many pints to Jeff Waugh. Kalin booted into OSX to
show us QuickSilver, an app he thought would help bring advanced users
into Gnome and increase productivity like it had done for him in OSX. It
was nice to hang out with people who had listened to lugradio and read
Mark Shuttleworth's slashdot intervew, and who were current with the
latest flamewars (bitkeeper, anyone?). It wasn't all just geek talk
though, we had some friendly and spirited discussions about politics and
All in all a good time. Maybe next time we'll have a bit better
organization and turn out a few more people. But it was pretty fun as is.
