Hi amigo from France and worldwide contributors,

I stay in France too, in southwest and must certainly be a big customer 
from the ship it program because I full my sturdays on sundays by 
installing Ubuntus in masses.
On my money I printed a flyer explaining what is gnu/Linux and what is 
Ubuntu. I think we are on the good way because as old linux-user (since 
redhat 5.5) I can see the progress in installing, hardware detection and 
sound handling.
So thousands thanks to the Ubuntu team to allows access to win users to 
a new world. In fact today excepted the gamers, you can do 99% of what 
you did on win32.
The onliest problem the new ubunters have is not to understand our 
philosophy of mandatory non-propriatery softwares and so I have to 
install non-free repos sources lists to enable non-free codecs to have 
working out after install.
We have yet discussed about on the list so I will not put more oil in 
the fire, because I am attached to ubuntu's philosophy and the good way 
when an experienced user install is to explain this to the newbie before 
making his computer fully enabled to handle all web stuff and all audio 
and video because that is what they want.

The other helpfull point is that the project is well documented.

The delay of Vista is another good news, Ubuntu 6.10 comes out before 

Champagne for the new little child of the family!
