UbuntuYes, the Zimbabwe Ubuntu LoCo Team finally said something. So all you party animals (and not-so-social geeks, seriously, here is your chance to interact with like minded dudes) make time this Saturday to celebrate freedom.

The release party will take place at 335 Herbert Chitepo Street, Alliance Française in Harare and it starts at 2PM. You can send an email to for directions. And for all the naysayers out there (and Windows fanboys) who don’t believe in freedom, there will be a demo to showcase the special features that distinguish Ubuntu as an Operating System.

You can also bring a blank CD to burn a copy of Lucid Lynx (I love the name) at the party. We know you don’t have a decent broadband connection to download whole OS ISO images, I’d grab this chance if I were you. The LoCo Team says to confirm attendance on that events email there.

Ubuntu 10.04 was released on 29 April 2010. This is a Long Term Support version which means that it’l have updates for three years for desktop use and five years for the server. A version you’d probably want to get if you don’t want to be bother by new bells and whistles as long as there are security updates coming in.

What we read is that the new version is strong on web services and social networking and has integrated interfaces for posting to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

See you there!
