It's not your eyes, your monitor, or even Ubuntu: we DO look different today! In this post I talk about our latest revamp and why it matters to us and you!
Think of this note as a scribbled note stuck to the communal notice board with a half-chewed stick of gum.
If you're one of our regular readers you may have been wondering where the Dapper Drake we've been for the last few weeks. Well here's where, and why it's actually turned out for the best.
Just a quick note! I'd like to take a moment to thank each one of you for being a fantastic bunch of readers over the past year, and wish you a good holiday break! It's been an amazing year for OMG! Ubuntu! and our little wee community is growing by so much every day. Joey and I are always blown away by the statistics, number of comments, shares, and interaction OMG! Ubuntu! has with all members of the community. We know for a fact that people from Canonical, the community, companies using Ubuntu, selling Ubuntu, and all sorts of projects are represented in the comments section and this really brings a smile to our face.
Just a quick notification to let everyone know that we've open sourced our OMG! Ubuntu! android application. All you budding Java coders can head on over to Launchpad and play around with the code.
We know that our comments section and the OMG! community is extremely active, you guys love having your say and voicing an opinion and there has been some completely awesome discussions take place in the comments down there.
The official OMG! Ubuntu! Android app is here! Now you can get the latest Ubuntu news, tips, interviews, how-tos and more from your favourite Ubuntu site wherever you are on your Android phone.
In September last year we launched Ubuntu Gamer at ubuntugamer.com - the intention was to create an entirely new site in a similar vein to OMG! Ubuntu!, but dedicated purely to gaming on Ubuntu. The site went well for a few months until earlier this year, when due to a variety of reasons, a lot of the authors couldn't find the time to write articles and the news was well, simply not there.
Come Ubuntu release day, there's so much stuff happening it's often hard to keep track. There are new articles popping up on OMG! Ubuntu! throughout the day, reactions on Twitter and Identica, chat in the #ubuntu-release-party IRC channel and constant refreshes of www.ubuntu.com to see if the release is, in fact, released.
We've been working hard over the past month or so trying to improve the OMG! Ubuntu! experience for you guys, our faithful readers. It's all about making the experience the best we can for you, so if you can spare 20 minutes or so, we'd really appreciate your help in filling out this survey.
Over the last few days I've been posting a few photos of our new office, a space in the Centre for Innovation at Otago University in Dunedin, New Zealand thanks to The Distiller. The guys and gals on our Facebook page have enjoyed the photos, so I figured it'd be a good idea to post a few of them here for you guys to have a look too.
Good news, everyone! As part of our increasingly important goal of including our readers in more and more of what we do, we've now set up a Get Satisfaction page for you to share your ideas, ask questions and report issues with OMG! Ubuntu! and other Ohso products. Make the jump for the juicy details.
