Those terribly nice people at Ubuntu have sent me several copies of their rather nifty version of Linux for gratis. It seems only fair to pass on the love. First four people to ask get a nice shiny install disk and a bootable live disk to test drive Ubuntu without having to install it. I'm happy to post them if you don't live near me.

UPDATE: All gone. I'll get some more when the next release comes out (approx. April)

They are indeed terribly nice people ;) I wouldn't mind one of the CDs if you have plenty of spares, I've been meaning to take a look at that for the next new server I had occasion to set up.

Got it! Thanks, that was very efficient ;)

I'm told (by a source who bloody well _ought_ to be reliable) that the new release is due out April 6th.

Ooooh...could I have one please?

Yes. See above.

Ooh, ooh, can I?

E-maily forthcoming in a moment.

Ooh, what is it? Would I know what to do with it?

It's an alternative operating system (i.e. a replacement for Windows.)

I'm not sure you'd get on well with it.

I'm sure you're right. I saw the word 'free' and didn't think beyond that. Best if it goes to someone who knows what they're doing.
