hey guys upon reading your mail... well marketing mail my group too is in
aid for promoting free gnu/linux systems in Malta its call linuxmalta.tk i
have a videos page where i add my Ubuntu found ads from youtube.com... i
wont mind getting the english/maltese/italion/arabic version of i'm ubuntu
in Maltese"Jien ubuntu"
in a sentence it could come Jien/a Warren u Jien UBUNTU - English trans...
I'm Warren and I'm Ubuntu... jes i know jien is for male and jien is for
female meaning I...

we are a 35 linux mostly ubuntu/kubuntu users so why not share out ideas and
produce it with each other and and stick it under the gnu license? my work
is always under copyright like u send it out exactly how i done it under my
name but you sent it under urs then thats breaching of copyright... but just
change the pace/volume or something then its yours...

i think thats fair?


Thanks,
Warren, (still awake on 7am 1/1/09 lol)
