Nothing good and little turnout it seems. 88 [02:17] <pleia2> hehe 89 [02:17] <eps> Low turnout is how STUPID ideas (like ditching Firefox for Chromium) refuse to die. 90 [02:18] <pleia2> now now 91 [02:18] <pleia2> they did a fair technical evaluation, and ended up sticking with Firefox 92 [02:19] <philipballew> This time i'm proposing IE with WINE become default, so if you want it to not be, come to UDS. 93 [02:19] <pleia2> :P 94 [02:19] <eps> For Saucy, yes. But its going to raise its ugly heads again, so we need lot of warm bodies to chop them off. 95 [02:20] <pleia2> I think that's pretty much all I had on my list of things to talk about 96 [02:21] <philipballew> Anything else I will say will just end up being pointless and offensive. 97 [02:21] <philipballew> so I have nothing. 98 [02:21] <eps> And now, a moment of silence for Ubuntu Edge. 99 [02:21] <pleia2> *silence* 100 [02:22] <philipballew> *Moment Over* 101 [02:22] <pleia2> hehe 102 [02:22] <pleia2> alright, thanks guys 103 [02:22] <pleia2> #endmeeting
