As a departure from our usual meeting format
(since schedules didn’t mesh for securing a feature
presentation), our ALE Central Meeting for 7:30pm
on Thursday, JUNE 17th will be taking the form of:
An Open Discussion on Desirable Distros:
Measuring Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (& Derivatives)
Against the Many Viable Alternatives
presented by the informed, fair minded opinons of
our many ALE Linux Distro Connoisseurs,
— AND —
Accompanied by Ample Supplies of Ubuntu 10.04
Desktop, Server and Kubuntu discs (courtesy of
Nick Ali via Canonical).
— The Desirable Distro Discussion will kick off with a
brief, informal presentation on the fabulous features
and faulted frailties of the latest Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
release, including some comparisons to the Linux MINT
Ubuntu derivative distro. From there we will open the
mic, the podium and the projector to anyone wishing
to display or discuss their own preferences in Linux
distributions and software bundles. Demonstrations
of alternative desktops, window managers, widgets
and system extensions will also be welcome.
ALE Event Coordinator (etc) Aaron Ruscetta will
present the introductory Ubuntu evaluations and
serve as moderator for the discussions.
We will be meeting at our usual venue, Emory Law School,
Gambrel Hall, room 1C. Meeting time frame is 7:30pm to ~9:30pm,
(though we may adjourn to Meltons App & Tap for continutation
of the discussions a little earlier than usual).
