Salam all,

As usual, our gathering is every Sunday. But *this* time we're having a
special event, that is the release of a wonderful desktop Linux, Ubuntu 7.04, a.k.a Feisty Fawn.



This release is one really significant in many aspects. Some of the really
exciting things about it include:

* Better support for your hardware: Including Atheros and Intel (WiFi), nVidia
and ATI (VGA). Also, since most of these drivers are Restricted (non-free
software), there is an applet that let's you manage them easily.

* Better WiFi support: Once your WiFi is up and running, you can easily select
one of the available networks without having to type a single command! Not only
this, but it also has support for additional wireless networks encryption
methods, including wep and wep2 64, 128, and 256 bit.

* Easier to setup Desktop effects: You can enable the built in (experimental)
Desktop effect, or you can simply get the Beryl effects: apt-get install
beryl{,-manager} without changing or reading any documentation.

* .Net IDE for the MS .Net lovers: With this release you have Monodevelop (an
OSS IDE) ready for use. It also include (basic) support for ASP.Net
applications.

* Easier to get and install codecs: If you have some nice videos and/or DVDs
you want to play but don't know what to do to run them, worry no more! When you
try to play such media, Totem (the Gnome media player) will inform you about
the needed codecs and even show you a list of them, so you can just select and
install them easily.

* Windows migration tool: This discovers your Windows profile on the computer
you're installing Ubuntu on and offers you to migrate the most of your
information. This includes Internet Explorer favorites, Firefox bookmarks,
desktop wallpaper, AOL IM contacts, Yahoo IM contacts and imports them in
Ubuntu.

... and much more :-)

So, what are you waiting for, join us today to test and probably install this
great release on your Laptop and attend a quick overview of these and some
additional fantastic things!

We're waiting for you...
