So far so good, but I've been successfully ignoring GNOME Shell so far. :) 15 02:05:00 <metalbiker> any particular reason why you're ignoring gnome shell? 16 02:05:02 <nhaines> Okay, I think we don't have anything planned right now, but release parties and installfests are great ways to celebrate LTS releases, so start thinking. May is a good time for this, and so is July when 18.04.1 comes out. 17 02:05:29 <nhaines> metalbiker: because I disagree with everything GNOME's done for the last six years, and because Unity matches my workflow perfectly. :) 18 02:06:14 <nhaines> Credit where credit's due, though. GNOME is being extremely collaborative with Canonical now, and I understand with other downstreams as well. 19 02:06:46 <nhaines> #topic Announcements 20 02:06:48 <metalbiker> nhaines: oh, gotcha!! i was rather disappointed with all of the issues with gnome and the wayland server and then i grew tired of having so many panels so i tried out kubuntu and was amazed! i love its layout so much more. 21 02:07:14 <nhaines> Well, 18.04 isn't going with Wayland by default, so it should be nicer. But KDE is also great. :) 22 02:07:42 <nhaines> The Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase has wrapped up and the final wallpapers, video, and music selections have been announced! 23 02:07:45 <nhaines> https://www.nhaines.com/blog/2018/04/08/announcing-ubuntu-18.04-lts-free-culture-showcase-winners/ 24 02:07:45 <darthrobot> Title: [Announcing the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Free Culture Showcase winners | nhaines.com] 25 02:07:55 <metalbiker> cool! 26 02:08:11 <nhaines> Those should start showing up in bionic later this week. 27 02:08:17 <nhaines> But definitely before the 26th! ;) 28 02:08:44 <metalbiker> oh awesome! hopefully they get over to kubuntu as well. 29 02:09:05 <nhaines> The song and video will, but the Kubuntu wallpapers are different. 30 02:09:23 <nhaines> But you can run 'apt install ubuntu-wallpapers-bionic' and get them that way. :) 31 02:09:31 <nhaines> Or just snag them from Flickr! 32 02:09:34 <metalbiker> hey, that's cool with me. 33 02:10:41 <metalbiker> noted! i'll make sure to do that and see what comes out! 34 02:11:18 <nhaines> Great. :) Any other announcements? 35 02:12:22 <metalbiker> not really anything of great value to add here. i've been announcing things on the mailing list more so i don't think i've got anything for now 36 02:12:47 <nhaines> Fair enough. :) 37 02:12:49 <nhaines> #topic Agenda 38 02:12:57 <nhaines> This week's agenda is empty. 39 02:13:01 <nhaines> #topic Other business 40 02:13:11 <nhaines> Anything else before we wrap the meeting up? 41 02:13:43 <metalbiker> nada 42 02:14:04 <metalbiker> if anything comes up i'll blast it out over the mailing list 43 02:14:08 <metalbiker> lol 44 02:14:35 <nhaines> Perfect. :) 45 02:14:41 <nhaines> Nothing more from me, either. 46 02:14:48 <metalbiker> cool! 47 02:15:19 <nhaines> Okay, next meeting is April 22nd, just before I head out to UbuCon Europe in Spain. Which reminds me I need to record more audio promos for them, lol. 48 02:15:35 <nhaines> Until then! 49 02:15:36 <nhaines> #endmeeting
