''Ubuntu pro omnibus, omnes pro Ubuntu!''

ch-orange192x124.png Switzerland has, although a small country, no less than 4 official languages with a wealth of dialects and variations. To have a common ground, the official communication language of our LoCo is English. For most Swiss Ubuntu-users, support and information in their own (main) language is provided by the French, German and Italian speaking communities. (Any takers for a Romansh initiative?)

The Swiss team would like, however, to enhance communication between Swiss Ubuntu users/contributors, and arrange local meetings and provide local support.

On launchpad, we are the Ubuntu Swiss User group. We are one of the approved Ubuntu LoCoTeams.

Mailing list, IRC channel and Forum

Mailinglist Please join our mailing list where we coordinate efforts and spread information among us. Note that this is not a list for normal technical support questions - unless it involves, for instance, Swiss keyboards or location Smile :-)

IRC Also, an IRC channel has been created on Freenode, feel free to join the #ubuntu-ch channel for chats and discussions on our Ubuntu activities. Detailed instructions on how to join the IRC channel with Pidgin, Ubuntu's default chat client, can be found on our IRC page

While most of our activity is our mailing list and #ubuntu-ch IRC channel, we also have a LoCo forum which we use from time to time.

A friendly German speaking social community can be found at
