• ROALUG Monthly Meeting - Upgrading Ubuntu
    Great news - Ubuntu LTS[masked] is now available. It's time to upgrade! It's always been my recommendation to wait until the first "point release" so that all the initial bugs can get worked out. We'll step through the process of upgrading in-place on my production Ubuntu laptop and review the procedure on an instance of Ubuntu server. Bootable USB sticks with 16.04 LTS and[masked] LTS will be available to take home.

    The default OS for the Raspberry Pi is a special version of Debian Linux optimized for the hardware. But, did you ever wish you could run this lightweight and speedy OS on another platform? Now you can with the Raspberry Pi Desktop x86 version! We'll take a tour of this Linux distribution installed on a 5 year old Toshiba Satellite laptop and see how well it performs.
