UniForum Chicago Linux May Meetup

The topic for this month - Ubuntu 12.04

Wayne Schneidman will host a presentation and discussion on Canonical's just released Long Term Support Ubuntu 12.04 with the Unity desktop interface. He will cover new features of the operating system along with what has changed. The Heads Up Display, Dash menu system, Unity Lense and important changes in the Launcher. He will also show how other desktop environments can be installed and configured to run side by side in the same installation.  This will facilitate the ability to chose between LXDE, XFCE, KDE, Cinnamon, Gnome, Unity and others at login time ultimately enabling the end user to chose which desktop he or she wants to run in based upon personal preferences without having to run multiboot or virtual machines.

    This particular meeting was reminiscent of meetings in the past that gathered at the Rock Bottom years ago. It was lively, with great technical discussions initiated by the presentation given by Wayne. In addition, there was plenty of "give and take" which I consider the basic nature of open source computing. I would highly recommend this Meetup to anyone who is investigating Linux, as well as those who are already experts.

    Learned just what I wanted to know about Ubuntu 12.04. There were a number of interesting discussions of related topics - for example current trends in GUI. We are moving away from the days of finding your app by a hard coded menu system as a first choice to typing in a few letters of the app name.
