[Lubuntu-desktop] My Story in 2011

2011-12-31 Thread amjjawad HOOHAA
Dear All,

In few words, I'd like to share my story in 2011 with you all.
2011 was A CRAZY YEAR and fill of lots of things that can't be summarized.
I admit it was full of screws up but TWO GREAT THINGS happened in 2011 that
changed my history, present and future.

In 2011, I found the real purpose and aim of my life that I shall spend my
life time ... each year, month, day, minute, second and nano second praying
and be very much grateful for that. The Steps that I have made in 2011,
unquestionably, the best step I've ever made, period. My one and only love,
you have supported me and still do ... you have never let me down and still
do ... you have never given up on me and still do ... no words and nothing
will express how much I'm grateful to you. *Happy New Love Year to
You* 3 *THANK
YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING IN MY LIFE* :)

In 2011, my interest, activity, understanding and experience in Linux has
grown up and it became so obvious how much I like Linux and what I'm
capable to do for it. Before that, I used to like everything and anything.
Was jumping here and there with no clear aim or purpose. That vanished and
faded away the moment I did the second great step in 2011 and joined
Lubuntu Team. I've never done something so right like that. I'm quite sure
I have finally done the RIGHT step and I shall never regret it.

Long story short, I'm the Happiest and the Luckiest man on earth with these
two huge achievements and I promise I shall improve that in 2012 :)

I'd like to show my appreciation to each and every member of this amazing
family ... no doubt Lubuntu is my second family. Thank you and I'm so much
proud to be with you :)

Special thanks to very special people here: Phill, Julien and Michael, you
guys are amazing .. THANK YOU for everything :)

May this year be much better for Lubuntu and each one of us ... God bless
you all and wish you all the best in the world. Happy New Year :)

I have made this little thing ... feel free to share it. Nothing much, I
made it with Photoshop in few mins because I was in hurry :P

Oh yes, my 2012 will definitely be special too ;)

D'awww. sniff, sniff

Seriously, thank YOU AJ, you've been brilliant, really supportive of me, 
as a mentor and friend, hope this continues for a long time yet. :D


My New Year is still two hours away, but I thought I'd post now before 
something unexpected happens (it always does!), but thanks also to 
Amjjawad and Julien/gilir especially, Phil and all the other regular 
contributors. And Morgaes, if he's listening. First year in Linux, and 
it's been a really good one.


I'm really looking forward to Precise Pangolin, LTS or not, and whatever 
they're going to make of Q (quirky quagger?) I also leave secondary 
school later this year, so I hope to be taking computing soon to broaden 
my interest in the topic.


Had my hair cut, and it's dropping all over the keyboard, so I'll stop 
now, but thanks everyone, and I hope you have a very happy new year.


Michael

PS AJ, you missed the depends of the 2012 package, friends, LXDE, and 
the new-lubuntu meta-package. :P

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] My Story in 2011

2011-12-31 Thread Phill Whiteside
My look back on 2011?

We not only survived an event that would have despatched other teams to
oblivion, we, under the incredible and tenacious attitude of Julien got
through it.

I am not going to fall into the trap of try mentioning all those people who
made 11.10 happen, every person within the lubuntu team and our ubuntu
family has not only given more of themselves, asked a bit of a help, or a
favour from someone during the trek for us to attain full adoption. It got
tough, but Lubuntu 11.10 arrived on specification, on time and within
budget!

12.04 brings new challenges. Lubuntu is ready for them, even over the
'holiday' season our IRC team are in place, the QA / testing team, our
start on IRC / Wiki / Forum interaction teams have been started. As we have
never lost our dev team nor artwork team, it was a case of getting the
everything else into teams. Still got to get the translations team fully
back up to speed. As lubuntu is a lean, mean and nimble flavour of the
ubuntu family, we can be nimble.

So, for 2012?

Get on board, the teams are at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved and you can find a list of
who we all are, along with our time zones etc. at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Get%20Involved/WhoWeAre

Here is to 2012. The team that got us from 9.04 from the very, very alpha
one before I joined at about 9.10, can I say thank you. You did it, it will
always remain as yeah, I made a difference. Whllst we nagged over things,
we have always had a an agreement.

Thank you to all of Lubuntueers, it matters not when you joined. It matters
that you have. I'd like to sign off with an oft quoted comment, but for me
chatting with devs and then taking the time to explain to me, a wiki / doc
person ..

We were all n00bs when we were born, the lubuntu te
