[vox-announce] Give-away: Ubuntu Linux CDs at meeting tonight



LUGOD will be giving away ten CDs of Ubuntu Linux ("Linux for Human Beings")
at the regularly scheduled meeting tonight. Please come if you would like to
obtain one. Here is some information about Ubuntu Linux from
<www.ubuntulinux.org>:

   The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu
   Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that
   software tools should be usable by people in their local language and
   despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to
   customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.

   These freedoms make Ubuntu fundamentally different from traditional
   proprietary software: not only are the tools you need available free
   of charge, you have the right to modify your software until it works
   the way you want it to.

   The team behind Ubuntu makes the following public commitment to its
   users:
     * Ubuntu will always be free of charge, and there is no extra fee
       for the "enterprise edition", we make our very best work available
       to everyone on the same Free terms.
     * Ubuntu includes the very best in translations and accessibility
       infrastructure that the Free Software community has to offer, to
       make Ubuntu usable by as many people as possible.
     * Ubuntu is released regularly and predictably; a new release is
       made every six months. You can use the current stable release or
       the current development release. Each release is supported for at
       least 18 months.
     * Ubuntu is entirely committed to the principles of open source
       software development; we encourage people to use open source
       software, improve it and pass it on.

   Ubuntu is suitable for both desktop and server use. The current Ubuntu
   release supports Intel x86 (IBM-compatible PC), AMD64 (Hammer) and
   PowerPC (Apple iBook and Powerbook, G4 and G5) architectures.

   Ubuntu includes more than 1,000 pieces of software, starting with the
   Linux kernel version 2.6 and Gnome 2.8, and covering every standard
   desktop application from word processing and spreadsheet applications
   to internet access applications, web server software, email software,
   programming languages and tools and of course several games.

The LUGOD meeting will be:

>   December 7, 2004
>   6:30pm - 9:00pm
> 
>   "Implementation of Open Source at the Air Resources & Franchise Tax Boards"
>   presented by: Bill Fell and Harry Ng from ARB, and Allen Lung from FTB
> 
>     California's Air Resources Board and Franchise Tax Board have
>     taken an interest in Open Source Software (for example, see ARB's Open
>     Source Software Initiatives page: http://www.arb.ca.gov/oss/oss.htm ).
