Select it from the login screen with the gear icon after choosing your user. 22 02:05:40 <nhaines> Otherwise, it's new versions of everything and there are even some snaps preinstalled by default! 23 02:06:18 <nhaines> The desktop should be reliable enough, but this should be a fun release to build servers on soon. :) 24 02:07:03 <metalbiker> oh yeah! i agree! that's part of my new focus but like i mentioned, i'll announce more on the list. 25 02:07:17 <nhaines> This will also be an excellent release to host installfests on, because the new GNOME Shell interface lends itself to answering lots of questions. 26 02:07:24 <nhaines> metalbiker: I look forward to hearing more. :) 27 02:07:35 <nhaines> #topic Agenda 28 02:07:39 <nhaines> There is no agenda for tonight's meeting. 29 02:07:43 <nhaines> #topic Other business 30 02:08:02 <nhaines> It's quiet in here tonight. Is there any other business before we wrap things up? 31 02:08:42 <metalbiker> nothing from me, nathan. 32 02:10:01 <nhaines> I'll mention for the record that UbuCon Europe was a huge success, the Ubuntu Europe Federation is a collection of LoCo teams looking to share knowledge and experience in event planning and handle venue issues such as insurance and donations, and GijÃ³n and Asturias are really pretty, even when it's raining. (And the rest of Spain looked gorgeous from 32,000 feet.) 33 02:10:30 <nhaines> Also, I managed to pack the cider I brought back properly so that it didn't shatter and destroy all my clothes, so that was a plus. 34 02:10:34 <metalbiker> lol wow!! i'm envious!! 35 02:11:11 <nhaines> You say that, but you didn't get dragged on a four-hour bike ride and then four days later a six and a half-hour hike to the top of a mountain, lol. 36 02:11:16 <metalbiker> hopefully we can learn from UbuCon about our own planning and whatnot 37 02:11:40 <metalbiker> oh jeez!! 38 02:11:58 <metalbiker> i think i'd be jello after all that! lol 39 02:12:20 <nhaines> The UbuCon Europe teams went to SCALE two years ago to learn from us, and then the first event later that year was a huge success. This third event continues that trend. :) 40 02:12:22 <metalbiker> think of it like this: you climbed Mt. Ubuntu! 41 02:12:54 <metalbiker> oh nice! so they got it from SCALE! nice! 42 02:13:00 <nhaines> More in the obligatory blog post, since Ubuntu community donation funds paid for my travel expenses. :) 43 02:13:22 <nhaines> But yeah, we're all working together in little ways to help make things easier. 44 02:13:40 <nhaines> That's it for this meeting! Next meeting is May 20th! 45 02:13:43 <nhaines> #endmeeting
