The home stretchevand

This is it. After nearly a month of preparation, with a five day blitz of asking those around to you to take an interest in what promises to be an excellent new resource for Ubuntu users, we are a mere 24% away from going into beta. We are now one of the fastest growing proposals on Stack Exchange. We're ahead of Apple, we're ahead of the Advanced Unix and Linux group, and we're ahead of homebrewing, which I had imagined would blow past all of us in fairly short order ;). We've put the Ubuntu brand on the front of a very popular website within the wider tech community for several days. Well done, everyone. Lets get those last few percent this week. Please, tell all your friends that we're working together to build a community around an excellent question and answer platform that rewards good questions and helpful individuals. One that non-technical users, entirely unfamiliar with forums and Launchpad, can use effectively and make their experience of running into some difficulty with Ubuntu ultimately a positive one through the support they get here. Please post the proposal on identi.ca, twitter, facebook, hacker news, reddit, digg, and wherever else you and others who can benefit from such a resource frequent. Remember, you can get reputation points for referring other people to the Ubuntu proposal. Simply visit this page, then click on the "Share This" link. A special URL with your referral code will appear. Use this URL when telling others how much fun we're going to have once the Ubuntu Stack Exchange is set up, and you'll be on your way to earning all sorts of cute badges for your efforts. Good luck, and again, thank you so much for your help.(image)

Wow, massive thanks to Iain Farrell who took a shine to my old fashioned in-office spam and posted an article about our efforts to create a Stack Exchange for Ubuntu to his own blog, which was then syndicated by the Design Team blog. The good folks at OMG! Ubuntu! took notice and covered what is […](image)

Ubuntu and Windows 7 make sweet love.evandWubi in Windows 7

Wubi, the Ubuntu installer that presents itself as a dialog in Windows and lets you use space on your existing filesystem rather than having to divy up your precious hard drive into partitions, was rewritten in Python this development cycle to save us all from the horror that is the Nullsoft Scriptable Installation System (NSIS).  […](image)
