Greetings and Happy Halloween to everyone. It's been another busy week here in the State. The release of Ubuntu's Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 our team has seen an increase in membership. It is a pleasure to welcome new voices in the team channel, and to see the obvious enthusiasm for another great Ubuntu version. The Education Team and the Server Team continue to progress, and we should be thinking about having an install fest soon. The end of the year is just around the corner, and most of us will be busy with family and friends at Thanksgiving and Christmas. So lets all start thinking about when would be a good time to introduce Ubuntu and Gutsy to some more prospective new members and continue our goal of fixing bug #1(Windows dominance of the OS desktop environment). Have a great week and I'll see you at the next meeting, Sunday at 9:00 PM in the team channel, #ubuntu-arizona. John
