Thanks to all those who came along it was great to meet new people here in Limerick who are users of Ubuntu but also want to get more people using it.
Seven of us turned up the Absolute Hotel in Limerick, I had a table got and had a few things that were on the table to let folks know I was there. I was really chuffed to see so many people turn up, a lot were end users like myself and others are using Ubuntu but also want to see it more visible in their workplace.
It was interesting to hear their experiences in getting Ubuntu rolled out onto more desktops. The issues they faced, the lack of contacts here in Ireland, we’re rather unfortunate not to have Canonical partners over here, or service providers who can be onsite within 4hrs to help with issues that are needed. But again this hasn’t deterred them in going forward! I was ecstatic to hear Limerick City Council Manager uses Ubuntu That made my day!
I think it went well, and I’m glad to say we’re going to try it again next month, same place, time and hopefully get some more discussion going.
