You may have noticed in the past we are migrating towards a more ubuntu support based forum cutting out the unnecessary area's such as OS talk and OMGPP.

So, today will be the last day for the cafe. Enjoy and we hope you understand our decision.

Nah, Ubuntu will now drop i386 support and only support i686 and x86_64.




As an announcement, shouldn't this be a sticky anyway, for full effect?

Given the new color scheme, I totally applaud this decision. Noone's gonna want to hang out here anymore, anyway.

I certainly hope this is all in jest. You just don't make announcements of any sort on April 1. No one will believe you. It's not even worth it. Not in a company to your employees, not in a forum, not even to your wife.

Despite all the OS-bashing, FUD sloshing and bickering that occurs in the Community Cafe, I think many of the discussions that do occur there are a hell of a lot more valuable and worth reading than:

My thoughts exactly. I was just about to post something about that but you beat me to it. If this was a serious post, they would either highlight it in a rounded box at the top of the forum, or post it as a sticky. They would also not do it one day before the event. Last, they would likely not do it on April 1.

So, this is kind of a sick joke.
