My mum works for a local college, and today I was there, gonna be helping out in some places, work experience kinda thing.

I was talking to Sarah, who is gonna be my boss if I don;t get a paying job before then ;) and we were chatting about stuff, and they have Ubuntu servers.

Their workstations are all Windows XP. (The only people who would wanna use Linux can't because they do flash dev and stuff.)

They also have a few macs, so they have test beds for all the stuff they make to ensure it works for most everyone. (Any BSD users are hung out to dry ;)

But it was nice to see, even at a small local college level, FOSS was there, and would be used more if it was easy to do for the things they need to do.

Ubuntero Gets Inked - Ubuntu Style (http://fridge.ubuntu.com/node/1734)

One South African Ubuntu fan, Denham Coote, took a big step into showing his commitment to the ubuntu concept by getting an Ubuntu circle of friends tattoo. The Fridge caught up with him to find out what inspired him to do this.

That deviation of the Ubuntu logo actually looks OK.

There is a member here on the forum that got the real logo (in color) on his arm, it looked hideous.
