   8  02:01:29 <nhaines> #Upcoming events
   9  02:01:43 <nhaines> Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will be launched on April 26th.
  10  02:01:50 <nhaines> So it's time to start planning release parties.  :)
  11  02:02:11 <metalbiker> oh yeah!
  12  02:03:14 <metalbiker> i've been testing kubuntu 18.04 lts and i've had a really great time with it.
  13  02:03:54 <metalbiker> i love the new kubuntu theme that's included in this release. it's a flatter, minimalistic look.
  14  02:04:18 <nhaines> I finally upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 on my laptop.  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!

  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!
