Great to know that!  I am reading the thread.. so keep the thoughts
comin'... I will post my thoughts after 2 weeks... right after I do
the summary on the replies... I have also posted this topic on the
Facebook group page of Ubuntu Team Philippines.. in case some are more
comfortable with Facebook.

Dax and Zak, can we put this on twitter? isip kayo ng hashtag for this...

and who would like to volunteer to be a or one of the moderator/s on
the discussing this via IRC, you can email me the logs so that I can
consolidate the thoughts

thanks thanks,
