=== Ubuntu Forums Interviews ===

MetalMusicAddict is under the spotlights for this week's interview (there was no interview last week due to the Gutsy release). He is part of the Ubuntu Studio crew, and a leading contributor on the Ubuntu Forums. Please read the complete article here: http://kmandla.wordpress.com/2007/10/24/an-interview-with-metalmusicaddict/

=== Share your Ubuntu Gusty upgrade/install experience ===

Like for every Ubuntu release, a poll has been created to share your Gusty experience with the community: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=580852.

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3592625 summarizes the results of the previous polls for previous releases (for Dapper-Edgy-Feisty).

=== UWN Feedback ===

You can also read the UWN in a specific UF sub-forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=243. The threads are open for comments, so please give us feedback regarding the UWN issues, specially the current one that will always be sticky. You can grab the RSS feed for the UWN sub-forum here: http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php?forumids=243.

=== All time UF connected user record ===

Just after Gutsy was released, the number of active users on UF have dramatically increased. Most users ever online was 11,934, on october 23rd, 2007 at 07:49 PM UTC. The servers have absorbed the shock wave, Yay!

=== New Hardy sub forums ===

As Gutsy was released, a section for the development (currently Hardy Heron) release was created, and the former Gusty development was closed. As usual, you will find the Idea-pool (posting and discussing your ideas that could possibly make it into the Hardy Heron release of Ubuntu) and Dev-Link (this forum allows developers to ask questions and have the user base reply) sections.
