=== j_baer_ [n=baerj@c-24-11-169-4.hsd1.mi.comcast.net] has joined #ubuntu-marketing
adamant1988well not so much with the back apparently02:13
jendaadamant1988: very, very back :)02:13
adamant1988haha02:13
jendajust a little tired, overwhelmed and...02:13
adamant1988I created a logo mockup for SU02:13
jendaa little drunk too, but that'll pass.02:14
jenda:)02:14
jendaadamant1988: saw it ;) Good work, appreciated...02:14
jendabut...02:14
jendawhat we need is a site graphics proposal now.02:14
adamant1988What are you looking for exactly?02:14
jendaWell...02:15
adamant1988I'm not great with templates but I think I could whip up a mockup..02:15
jendastriking original, simple and elegant ;)02:15
jendaa block of text fro ubuntu.com for now02:15
adamant1988How many sub pages is spread ubuntus site going to need?02:15
j_baer_hey ... are you folks talking about spread ubuntu?02:15
adamant1988are we talking like a single page website or a LOT of pages?02:16
jendaand five big colorful links: See it, Try it, Get it, Shipit, SPREAD IT.02:16
jendaadamant1988: the mockup: just the front page02:16
jendaj_baer_: yep02:16
j_baer_I'm the new guy to the team ...02:16
adamant1988Jenda just some ideas completely white, a large wireframe globe with the links marked as locations on it. The globe being inside an Ubuntu logo02:17
adamant1988any text and such can written in scrollable columns linked to the globe...02:18
adamant1988it's just an idea...02:18
jendaadamant1988: that's very nice... but I can't think of more of a use for it than a background image for SU or something of the sort.02:18
adamant1988unless you make it the main menu too.02:18
adamant1988Make locations on the globe link to sub pages.02:19
jendaWe don't really need a logo (as was decided after discussion) - logos are for branding. Do we brand with Ubuntu or Spreadubuntu?02:19
jendaUbuntu - if you ask me.02:19
jendaadamant1988: hmm...02:19
adamant1988there was a lot of talk of a spreadubuntu logo and I did a mockup really quickly =\02:19
adamant1988no ones replied on my switch data project =\02:21
sara_I think is goos, but I just don'y know how we would carry it out02:21
nixternal[18:44]  <jenda> I lived in WDC for three years. I konw the feeling02:21
nixternalwhere at?02:21
nixternali used to live there...my x and daughter still live there02:21
jendaWillard Ave.02:21
jendaChevy Chase.02:22
nixternalahhh02:22
nixternali live in g'town, and alexandria...and spent most of my time in southern maryland02:22
nixternali was stationed at patuxent river02:22
adamant1988sara_ what?02:22
sara_your proposal, I like the idea, but as it stand right now it would be hard to carry it our02:23
jendaadamant1988: whatcha mean by "a lot of talk of a spreadubuntu"?02:23
jendaerr... + logo02:23
sara_maybe when we get the spreadubuntu site we could make a testimonial section02:24
adamant1988I mean I came into the channel and it's what everyone was discussing was spreadubuntu and a logo for it and all that02:24
sara_ohh I was responding to no one answering to your proposal02:24
adamant1988Sara_ I am willing to do the grunt work on that project myself.02:24
adamant1988And I don't know if spread ubuntu could use the testimonials or not, but I think the info could be useful itself...02:25
sara_ohh, perhaps you can try to add that to the structure of spread ubuntu on the Seet it or Try it part. Like what others are saying about ubuntu02:26
sara_I use modo from luxology and they have similar section on their website02:26
sara_but not as elaborated02:27
adamant1988Well my idea for implimenting the data would be simple but effective "testimonial banner ads"   You see the picture, the brief description (so and so, age, new user) and a good one liner from their blog.02:27
sara_where would you post the adds02:28
adamant1988Banners make good signatures in forums.02:28
adamant1988There are tons of sites that promote Ubuntu that would be happy to display them.02:28
sara_uhh, interesting02:28
adamant1988aside from eventually getting our own page to put them on... which was the main goal.02:29
sara_Maybe you need to make a mockup02:29
sara_you are good with graphics02:29
adamant1988decent...02:29
adamant1988Mockup of what the page should look like?02:30
adamant1988or banners or what?02:30
sara_mockup of how you think the thing would actually look and maybe an explanation on how people would get acees to it. The bannes and what they would link to.02:31
adamant1988I'm thinking that the banners could actually link to the blog02:31
adamant1988I'll create a mockup banner with my photo02:31
sara_I would like to know if i am lookinf into using Linux how would I get access to it. How could I be exposse to it02:31
adamant1988Ubuntu is one of the first things people come to when they search in linux... But at that point they still need convinced...02:32
adamant1988but if our aim is 0 cost marketing then I think we'll have a harder time reaching the masses.  Not impossible by any stretch though.02:33
sara_not me, I did not hear about ubuntu until i had try sometihn like three distros and was frustated about to quit02:33
adamant1988it was the first thing I heard about02:33
adamant1988I couldn't try it because breezy didn't like my computer...02:34
adamant1988just a thought... maybe we could get some press on PCworlds site?02:34
adamant1988they have a writer who is VERY partial to Ubuntu.02:34
nixternalwe already have press there02:34
sara_so where do you think we should put the banners02:34
nixternaland to get more press costs a butt load..i know i used to do hardware reviews for them02:34
sara_or where we wouldbe allow to put eh banners. I would like to see one on distrowatch02:35
adamant1988well, where is the target audience going to be?02:35
adamant1988In particular pick a target market... if it's tech savvy computer users then I could imagine that working something out with computer help forums and linux forums would be a good place to get some activity.02:36
adamant1988as long as the forums are completely microsoft owned I don't see them objecting, most of them have members who use alternate OS's etc.02:36
sara_probably02:36
adamant1988For the end-user and home user, that's more difficult02:37
nixternalconsumer = 10 to dead on age, male and female....business = all of them02:37
adamant1988they usually visit places like ebay and usually only because their friends tell them about it or they chance upon it in google.02:37
adamant1988so getting to them is best done via word of mouth =\02:38
adamant1988so.. I don't know if 'pass this on to your friends' emails are allowed here, but that's one way to get to them...02:40
sara_it could work, I would be carfull with some over zealous poeple spamming it02:41
=== gnomefreak [n=gnomefre@ubuntu/member/gnomefreak] has joined #ubuntu-marketing

adamant1988lol02:43
adamant1988you don't have an end user friend with an email account?02:43

adamant1988I got someone really interesting in Ubuntu today02:56
adamant1988I just took my laptop down to the local library and sat with it for a while... wasn't long at all before people noticed I wasn't using Windows.02:57
adamant1988I am thinking about trying it again and taking Ubuntu disks with me02:57
jendaadamant1988: really?02:57
jendaInteresting...02:57
adamant1988Yeah02:57
adamant1988I had to give about 10 people links to Ubuntu.com02:58
adamant1988and detailed instructions on how to get CDs from shipit.02:58
adamant1988but this one kid in particular was going spastic, he begged me to let him play on the lappy.02:59

adamant1988I like the Simply Free idea for a slogan though... I've thought of so many ways that can be made into a good ad03:01
adamant1988I'm thinking I might use that as the slogan for my project in town and see how it goes.03:01
nixternaljenda: i need to hire you...i need you to shake the ubuntu-list mailman and get me a LoCo team list setup so everyone on my LoCo can communicate ;)03:02
jendaooh ;)03:02
jendanixternal: I'm good with that kind of thing. write me an email with the details ;)03:02

adamant1988lol03:04
adamant1988When is the ubuntupeople site going to be back up?03:04
jendaadamant1988: it won't.03:05
adamant1988-_-03:05
adamant1988That sucks... so the marketing team will have no website....03:05
jendaIt won't have a _forum_.03:06
jendaWe decided that on the meeting.03:06
jendaWe'll have the wiki...03:06
jendanixternal: BTW, I kinda like the TOC on the right...03:06
adamant1988TOC? and we're just going to use the wiki for everything?03:07
jendanot for everything.03:07
nixternaljenda: you mean in the box to the right?03:07
nixternala box03:08
jendaThere's the mailing list for communication03:08
jendanixternal: yep03:08
nixternalok03:08
jendabut my word isn't final, you know that :)03:08
adamant1988yeah, but we'll have our OWN wiki not the one on ubuntu.com right?03:08
jendaadamant1988: no, ubuntu.com03:08
nixternalwe have a meeting in a few days, and i want everyone involved03:08
jendaNo separationism any more.03:08
jendanixternal: me too.03:08
adamant1988ok, is spreadubuntu going to be on the main ubuntu site as well?03:08
jendaI think spreadubuntu.* will forward to spread.ubuntu.com03:09
nixternali just requested 500 more cd's for "Ubuntu Chicago Days" in a couple of months03:09
adamant1988I requested 50 and was shot down to 30...03:10
nixternalthis will be my 2nd order of 250+03:11
jendanixternal: nice :)03:11
nixternalthey go quick03:11
nixternali got rid of 250 in less then 30 minutes at the last show03:11
jendaI requested 41 and will get the lot.03:11
adamant1988why did I get shot down? is my town undeserving =(03:12
nixternalUbuntu Chicago is going to do a day in chicago of just marketing Ubuntu, hacking and enjoying the city...there are a few computer places and we want to put up posters and what not and kind of own that part of the city for the day03:12
nixternal500 will last i would say a good 6 hours03:12
jendaadamant1988: the reason you gave seemed to be satisfactoy for 30 CDs only to shipit, I guess.03:12
nixternalas only people interested, or who we make interested will grab them03:12
bimberiadamant1988: it's not personal :)  i heard of someone who ordered 300 and got 10003:12
nixternalim sure they will shrink my request hardcore03:13
nixternalyou always request more then you need, just in case03:13
adamant1988still blows I'm going to have to order more than that to get what I need for the school....03:13
nixternaladamant1988: i have spoken to a couple of the people in charge of that task, and they say as long as you can provide a good, clean legit reason and can back it up, they have no problem doing it03:14
adamant1988OOH I like these groovix computers sites...03:15
adamant1988wow they stocked up well, maybe i should order my computer from them instead of system 76...03:16
=== jenda nods off to a deep sleep.
=== bimberi drops a saucepan

=== jenda notices nothing...
adamant1988lol03:17
jendaand his cursor moves towards the X on Xchat's upper right corner...03:17
bimberithat _is_ deep03:17
nixternalso if jenda falls asleep now..that means when i wake up in the morning, i should have a solid 100+ emails in the marketing team inbox03:18
jendaHahahha :D03:18
jendaNot today, nixternal, sorry :)03:18
nixternali was looking forward to at least 1 dangit ;)03:18
jendaI promise I'll catch up tomorrow, though.03:18
=== nixternal closes kontact
nixternalya jenda, i need you well rested for tomorrow03:19
nixternaldon't need you falling asleep right when it is my turn in front of the CC firing squad03:19
nixternalactually, everyone in here...TOMORROW @ 20:00 UTC,  CommunityCouncil meeting, and I am up for membership... I need you to show me some love!!!03:19
nixternalLOL03:19
nixternaldon't make me do a channel ping03:20
adamant1988what?03:21
adamant1988what's the CC for?03:22
nixternalCommunity Council03:23
nixternalfor my Ubuntu membership03:23
nixternali have my 2 big membership requests within the next week...i have Ubuntu membership tomorrow, and then Kubuntu membership next week03:24
nixternaland then I have LoCo membership or introduction tomorrow as well03:24
adamant1988you have to request Ubuntu membership?03:24
adamant1988what are the benefits of that?03:24
nixternaleverything03:25
adamant1988specifically?03:25
nixternalthat is the benefits...you have a deeper communication channel which is huge, and it is just a small step and a token of the CC's appreciation for the work I have done..but I am not doing it for the benefits, I am doing it for the LOVE!!!!03:25
bimberinixternal: kubuntu membership implies ubuntu membership - you don't need both03:25
nixternalthey are seperate bimberi03:26
bimberinope03:26
nixternali thought they were, as if you are on Kubuntu member launchpad, your not on Ubuntu member launchpad, and plus there are 2 different CC's reviewing your history03:27
bimberiyou should find that kubuntu-members is a member of ubuntu-members03:27
adamant1988so why should I apply to get ubuntu membership? (that's what I'm asking)...03:27
nixternali guess you are right on that bimberi, as that is how it is03:28
bimberigah this modem, trying to load launchpad is sooo slllloooww03:28
bimberiadamant1988: it's recognition of your efforts as part of the ubuntu community03:29
adamant1988oh I see...03:29
adamant1988I guess I will just ahve to try harder.03:29
bimberinixternal: the CC wanted to offload some of the membership application load, so the kubuntu and edubuntu CC's were established03:30
nixternalahhh03:30
nixternali see03:30
bimberinixternal: so, up to you, i reckon you're fine for either :)03:31
adamant1988or both03:32
=== nixternal is still goin' for both ;)
=== bimberi pities the poor CC's
nixternali was told by others on the Kubuntu team to do it...so i will follow the leader ;)   that was bad...verry bad03:33
nixternalgahaha bimberi03:33
nixternalthx03:33
bimberinixternal: hehe, no not that _you're_ applying.  Just what it's effect is on the CC's wish to reduce the workload03:35
nixternali know...had to poke fun at you though ;)03:36
bimberi:P03:36
bimberiadamant1988: you don't have to try harder.  Just keep up the effort and decide when you feel ready to apply.  The criteria is essentially 2 months of sustained, significant contribution03:37
adamant1988heh, well I should be able to keep that up...03:37
adamant1988I wonder if these groovix computers are worth their weight....03:37
=== bimberi waited 9 months
adamant1988Yeah, I'm trying to find a good Ubuntu affiliate to buy a pc from03:39
adamant1988my fiance is going to switch to Ubuntu wether she likes it or not lol.03:39
adamant1988whether*03:39
bimberiwe don't have any affiliates locally - working on it though - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AustralianTeam/Projects/UbuntuFriendlyNotebooks03:40
=== bimberi didn't wait 9 months actually. It was 8.5 months before i decided to apply. Then it was 2 weeks to the next CC meeting :)
adamant1988hrmmm03:42
bimberibtw, http://wiki.ubuntu.com/MarketingTeam/UbuntuFriendlySuppliers is work-in-progress to broaden the scope of that AustralianTeam initiative03:42
adamant1988groovix and system76 both look good.03:43

adamant1988but I don't mind suse being all proprietary and all that.04:35
adamant1988But I AM going to download apparmor for my pc04:35
nixternalwhere can you purchase SuSe at around you?04:36
nixternali used to be able to go into Best Buy and buy it, and CompUSA...but not anymore04:37
nixternalsince Novell bought it from the Germans, all the stores stopped selling it that carried Microsoft Products04:37
adamant1988No where, but I CAN get it in a box with a manual, which is something I feel is relatively important for a home user to have.04:37
adamant1988I still doubt that anything could handle repos like Ubuntu does (except for Linspire and such)04:39
adamant1988But it gives me another distro to play with.04:40
=== adamant1988 loves his ubuntu though
nixternalyou can do the same for Ubuntu on sites taht sell it like that also i believe04:43
adamant1988Show me a site that sells it in English... I'd like to get a copy for my fiance probably.04:45

adamant1988that second one is impressive06:57
nixternalno comment06:57
nixternali did get a kick out of the "Linux for human beings....and robots" though06:57
adamant1988lol yeah that was pretty cool.06:58
adamant1988-_- I'm downloading the sled 10 isos...06:58
adamant1988You can tell Ubuntu has overwhelming qualities when I get a knot in my stomach from downloading another iso and thinking of using it =\06:59
nixternalsled?07:00
adamant1988yeah SUSE LINUX ENTERPRISE DESKTOP07:00
nixternaloooh i about used my ops on you ;)07:00
adamant1988lol i was kicked out of a channel once for using Ubuntu07:00
adamant1988But I've seen the screenshots, I've got the itch now, and I have to scratch. lol.07:01
nixternalliberals07:01
adamant1988That way I can dismiss it as betaware and go back to distributing Ubuntu CDs07:01
nixternalthats how SuSe sucks you in..it looks pretty..and yast2 is sweet and what not..but enjoy rpm headaches07:01
adamant1988Actually I'm more interested in the interface alterations07:02
adamant1988the "computer" menu is a subtle but big change, and I'd like to see how it's implimented.07:02
adamant1988I figure I'll use it on my laptop for a week before I reinstall ubuntu.07:02
adamant1988I just did a clean Ubuntu install last night so it's not like I'm losing any important data.07:03
nixternalKubuntu and thats that07:03
=== adamant1988 doesn't like kde.
=== nixternal doesn't like you then ;)
=== nixternal pets his kubuntu
adamant1988lol07:05
adamant1988sorry kubuntu just isn't as inviting as gnome07:06
adamant1988kde*07:06
nixternalhmmm07:06
nixternalmy kubuntu is beautiful07:06
nixternalit runs so smoothe, and it is solid07:06
nixternalsolid gold baby07:06
adamant1988I know but it's just not as inviting to me =\  I like simplicity and effectiveness.07:07
adamant1988all that polish has it's place, but not on my desktop.  I'll probably never touch XGL even if it comes included in edgy07:07
nixternalyou think gnome is simplistic?07:08
nixternalxfce is simplistic07:08
=== adamant1988 likes XFCE too
=== nixternal too ;)
adamant1988in fact I'm putting Xubuntu on Jenny's (my fiance) computer for the little social experiment I'm doing.07:09
nixternalxubuntu might not be the best one for her, but ok07:09
adamant1988it has.. modest... hardware to say the least so Xubuntu is pretty much be required...07:09
nixternalahhh07:09
nixternali run kubuntu and ubuntu dual boot on a p2 600, 196mb ram, 10gb hard drive07:10
adamant1988otherwise I'd give her a default Ubuntu install.07:10
adamant1988hers is an old slow processor with 128 megs of ram.07:10
adamant1988It's running XP  SOMEHOW07:10
nixternalouch07:11
nixternali ran xubuntu on this laptop, and i couldn't tell a difference between it and the others speed wise07:11
adamant1988But I promised her that Linux would speed her computer up, and I know Xubuntu can run 'ok' on 64 megs of ram so I'm putting that on her computer.07:11
nixternalthe fastest ubuntu is Kubuntu dapper w/ kde 3.5.3...and i will boot mine against anybodies anytime anywhere ;)07:11

adamant1988hello all05:57
Kamping_Kaiserhey05:59
=== adamant1988 yawns
adamant1988I can't believe I downloaded those SUSE isos lol.06:03
Kamping_Kaiseryou bene playing with suse?06:04
sara_how long did it take you? Before drapper came out I could not get breezy working on my alpto so I used Opensuse and it took to long06:05
jendaaloha, y'all.06:07
jendaIs Suse worth trying?06:07
adamant1988I don't know06:08
adamant1988what's what I'm going to find out.06:08
adamant1988My main interest is the XGL integration and the new menu system.06:08
=== Kamping_Kaiser is planning to try it soon
adamant1988I have to say that SUSE has always done well at producing an attractive gnome desktop06:08
adamant1988If Ubuntu could have that (except with two bars) then I would die.06:08
=== Kamping_Kaiser doesnt see whats wrong with ubuntus
adamant1988nothing06:09
adamant1988I love Ubuntu's gnome desktop06:09
adamant1988I'm saying Suse's is more attractive06:09
Kamping_Kaiserhow so?06:09
Kamping_Kaisermaybe i wasnt clear - what makes suses more atrractive?06:10
adamant1988I'm not sure... but it seems more 'elegant' I can't quite figure it out... I'm thinking it's the new menu system they've put in and the 'cleanness'.06:10
adamant1988Which Ubuntu has until people use and the bars get filled up...06:11
=== adamant1988 says nevermind.
=== Kamping_Kaiser has extra monitor space, so doesnt have screen issues at home :)
adamant1988haha06:12
adamant1988I don't.06:12
adamant1988Suse was what I used preubuntu, I was really happy with it except for the package managment.06:12
adamant1988YAST was broken hardcore06:12
=== Kamping_Kaiser hasnt tried yast
adamant1988In my mind Suse only has one thing over Ubuntu... They sell boxed sets =\.  I'd love to buy myself an ubuntu boxed set and get a couple disks and a manual (hell maybe even a tshirt :) )06:16
=== Kamping_Kaiser debates buying the german version, just for the boxed set
adamant1988I would do it if it was in English06:17
adamant1988But I'm glad someone agrees that we should have boxed sets :P06:17
Kamping_Kaiserhehe06:18
Kamping_Kaiseri'll keep using ubuntu-en, but having a box set would rock06:18
adamant1988I agree, lets write canonical.06:18
Kamping_Kaiseri have a german version of debian :)06:18
sara_Why doy ou think we need a box?06:19
adamant1988Because it's something tangible and physical.06:19
adamant1988You get a product, you want some confirmation that you have the product and that your money was well spent ( I kept my windows XP disks boxes for almost a year, sitting next to my computeR)06:19
sara_so waht is the diff between that and a Cd case06:20
adamant1988and... I read the manuals when I get bored =\06:20
Kamping_Kaiserlol adamant198806:20
adamant1988it's true06:20
adamant1988I didn't have an Ubuntu manual so I bought Ubuntu Hacks, the O ' Reilly book.06:21
Kamping_Kaiseri belive you :)06:21
=== Kamping_Kaiser was reading the guide to MS DOS 3.1 not long ago, same reason
adamant1988good book, lots of useful stuff about wine and all that.06:21

adamant1988exactly!06:21
Kamping_Kaiser:)06:21
adamant1988and this one could have  a t-shirt like the german set.06:22
adamant1988Plus you get people like my fiance, who would rather use the box than the product.06:22
adamant1988What is she going to do with Ubuntu!? theres no box!06:22
jendaWe should get the Ubuntu shop to sell boxed sets.06:22

adamant1988We're going to write lots of mean letters to the Ubuntu shop to get them to make it06:38
nixternalthe hard thing with the us, is getting places to sell it06:38
adamant1988just sell it online06:38
adamant1988then people who want it will get it06:38
nixternalonline stores will sell it since their overhead is nill usually06:38

Kamping_Kaiserthe hard thing everyware else is using US$ to buy it :O06:38

Kamping_Kaiseri dont mind a big distro, but ubuntu sucess was founded in its smallnes - ie it ran like a startup. now its so big its hard to controll/run06:53
adamant1988Well, either the canonical folks will see this and do something about it06:54
adamant1988otherwise ubuntu will have a problem solving bug #106:54
sara_I think that they know about ut and are looking into it06:54
adamant1988I don't see bug #1 being solved without boxed sets personally.06:54
Kamping_Kaisersure will, and actually, its not canonicals issue to fix. it sthe ubuntu foundations06:54
adamant1988(ok, so I REEALLLY want a box set)06:55
Kamping_Kaiseradamant1988, boxed linux doesnt sell that wlel, thers just some people who really like them06:55

Burgwork-offtopic07:19
adamant1988Yeah... I met some guy in the ubuntuforums channel who's basically being all emo. (girls won't date him, not successful) etc.07:20
adamant1988He's playing depression down as the reason for his woes... I'm bipolar and ADD... it hasn't stopped me any... i don't get people like that.07:20
Bigtoedepression is a strange thing07:21

jendaHello mgalvin07:54
jendaI have a question :)07:54
jendaIs the UWN Rosettable?07:54
jendaaaand... I just realised that of course it isn't... because rosetta syncs monthly. Duh.07:55
jendaHow is the UWN being translated, then?07:55
mgalvinjenda: hey...07:56
nixternaljenda: i believe the loco teams were going to be doing that07:56
mgalvinjenda: people just do it manually07:56
nixternali know a couple were already doing so07:56
jendanixternal: I'm asking for the Czech LoCo ;)07:57
nixternalthere you go jenda, it is all you then, get to translatin' ;)07:57

adamant1988hello all... again07:58
mgalvinjenda: you guys can just give me an update whenever there are updates08:13
adamant1988hrmmm there's nothing that great in SUSE08:16
adamant1988the menu system is NICE but past that I can't see one single advantage of Ubuntu.08:17

mvirkkiladamant1988: Well, we could all be using msdos or vax. Most stuff is something someone thinks of as unnecessary08:21
adamant1988I see your point08:21
adamant1988but the menus are a really nice addon.08:21
adamant1988sad thing is, it didn't configure my laptop right08:22
adamant1988linux loves my laptop08:22

adamant1988not too much09:47
adamant1988I finally am getting some decent hours at work... 23.5 next week... increasing as I get trained on more things...09:47
gaz00hey cool!   80% chance of vista ready by jan [ http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13812973/ ] 09:47
gnomefreakanyone know where man pages are stored? /usr/share/doc?09:47
nixternalewww09:47
adamant1988I have SUSE installed on my laptop09:48
gaz00gnomefreak: # which man09:48
gnomefreakman mount.smbfs09:48
gaz00gnomefreak:  on osx now, and its /usr/bin/man09:48
adamant1988I'm withholding all judgement but right now it seems the only advantage it has (for me) over Ubuntu is the menu system (which is AWESOME) and apparmor09:48
jendagaz00: don't believe that ;) Besides, the longer it takes, the better for us.09:49
adamant1988actually09:49
adamant1988It would be better if they released sooner.09:49
adamant1988microsoft has a nasty habit of rushing things... just imagine what could happen if a practically beta version of Vista were released 0_009:49
adamant1988that could be great for Linux in general.09:50
gaz00jenda: i'm fully aware.   80% is pretty low, but I find it amusing to see all the delays, and now, they are pushing it back another 6 months with a low chance of release09:50
jendaIT would be great if they released an extremely buggy (no doubt) beta-like final version...09:51
jenda... by the end of 201109:51
adamant1988haha09:51
adamant1988Wow.. I already want ubuntu back on my laptop09:52
adamant1988You never realize how much little things like sudo make life easier in linux until you use something like suse...09:53
adamant1988lol09:53
jendahehe :)09:53
adamant1988although I do love the slab09:54
nixternalyou know...that is something i noticed...you don't have to set up the sudoers config at all with Ubuntu09:54
adamant1988it's crazy how intuitive the slab is.09:54
adamant1988so Jenda you should help me argue a point that Ubuntu needs boxed sets to the shop.09:55
jendaI'll think about it. I'm hesitant if the initial investment isn't too large.10:01
adamant1988I think all we would have to show is that there IS a market for it.10:01
Burgworkjenda, boxed sets are madness10:01
Burgworkthere is already a company doing them in germanyu10:01
adamant1988yeah, too bad those are in German...10:01
jendaBurgwork: well, they make a profit, dunney?10:03
adamant1988that's what I'm saying... if fhtere was a boxed set you might see people buying them as gifts and such, I wouldn't suggest it if I didn't think the market was there.10:04
Burgworkjenda, no idea, I expect not a great one10:04
adamant1988as long as they're reasonably priced and contain good stuff then they'll be good sellers I imagine.10:04
adamant1988I'm nto saying we'll see them in bestbuy or anything, but it would be nice to be able to order one10:06
adamant1988hrmm I'm going to have to plug my suse laptop in to the net to get a read on how it preforms under actual use.10:08
adamant1988I'll be back10:08
gaz00he really likes that boxed set idea, doesn't he?10:10
jendaI don't expect it to be a zillion dollar business, but if there's anyone interested in the project, they should contact the company in Germany...10:11
jendadamn, I was going to suggest to him to do that ;)10:11
