Feliz Navidad y un próspero 2018

Feliz Navidad y un próspero 2018

Feliz Natal e um próspero 2018

Hyvää Joulua ja vauras 2018

Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2018

Prettige Kerstdagen en een voorspoedig 2018


Around and around, all has nearly turned full circle
The warm lazy days of sunshine and brown rivers winding through the meadows are a tale of yesterday

The pilgrim sighs and draws his mantle close about him in the smoky evening

He watches the leaves wither and fall
Frost has rimmed the pools with ice and hung diamonds in the spider’s web

For this is the turning of the year, the final scene before the curtain falls
And now beside the road there stands the pilgrim of the year to be

11 years and still going

And an other year passed by, it’s been 11 years since I started this blog.

This time no big changes to the blog, only added Google Translate and a widget to show my latest pictures on Flickr, and moved my Linux support page to a new blog.

Last year I wrote that due to the name / url change of the blog I lost a lot of readers. Fortunately this year it recovered a bit. At the moment it’s about half the numbers it used to be.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is called Bionic Beaver

Now we know the name I guess the repositories will be soon opened.

As soon as that happens I change the repositories from Ubuntu 17.10 to 18.04 so I can see how development progress.

Update : Release date is set to April 26, 2018.

Happy Birthday Ubuntu

Today Ubuntu turns 13.

The first release was Ubuntu 4.10 Each Ubuntu release has a version number that consists of the year and month number of the release. For example, the first release was Ubuntu 4.10 as it was released on 20 October 2004.

I’ve been using Ubuntu since version 5.04 (not always, I regularly switch between Debian GNU/Linux, Linux Mint and Ubuntu).
