Upcoming Ubuntu Events - May and July 2007

With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 coming in April 07, we'd like to remind you of four different Ubuntu events scheduled for May and July.

Photoshop CS2 on Linux (Ubuntu)

Having tried to install it before, I knew the typical route wouldn ’t work. Instead I headed over to portableapps.com, and dug up some info on making CS2 portable, and followed the steps here (on a Windows XP install of course). I tested it out on Windows, worked like a charm.

Ubuntu Canada vs. Microsoft's Ice House

Despite bad press, and discouraging comments from various sources in the Toronto Linux community that we shouldn't be unprofessional, and that we're giving Linux a bad name, Operation Cold Comfort was an absolute success.

At 4PM on Friday, February 2nd, with three security guards already watching us (they knew we were coming!), we pulled our 10-foot penguin out of the bag and began the inflation process.

Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 3 Released

Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 3, which will in time become Ubuntu 7.04 has just been released.

Call for Participation for Ubuntu Live 2007

After six developer summits, many more sprints and countless informal meetings amongst our developers, maybe it’s time to invite our users, customers and partners to the party? Together with O’Reilly we are thrilled to be inviting the WHOLE community, individual and corporate, technical and social, from small businesses and global giants, to join us in our first annual business conference - Ubuntu Live 2007. Planned to mesh well with the schedule for OSCON, there’s now another powerful reason to travel to Portland for the week of July 22!

UbuntuStudio Announced

Coming this April, Ubuntu Studio aims to be a multimedia editing flavor of Ubuntu for the Linux audio, video, and graphic enthusiast or professional who is already familiar with the Ubuntu-Gnome environment.
