Hi Kerwin ,

               Thanks for your feedbacks. I am not brave , trust me.
Ubuntu is THE most famous/popular/used Linux distro in the
world and Dapper brought the enterprise version with 5
years support. It is going somewhere. I have been using
Ubuntu since it came out and monitoring it ever since.

               As for the website , I too thought the same way as you did.
I wasn't sure about the Mark's trip here , I can't find it
on strait times site either. As for esys its easier , I
know sanjeev , who is from esys. He holds the treasurer
position in exco. We can try but we need more people before
we can talk to them. Of course , if you know someone else
in esys pls tell us too so we got more options.

               So this is what I am going to do now. Get the site up ..
Ubuntu.sg sounds right.Soon it should be up.I got a web
hosting account with 2 addon domains. I be adding this in
and put a forum or something. We will see what to put later
wiki/forum/blog anything.

Thanks a lot for the feedback Kerwin.
