    Keith, this is excellent.

    May I suggest:

    1. Attach the documents (PDF & ODP) to a post here (in case the two links should ever lose their validity, as happens over time).
    2. Present the form to the design team for inclusion on the 12.04 download page. I would enthusiastically support this.

    Hello All

    Forum limit is less than 200k for an attachment.

    I suspect Canonical will be polite about the poster, but will have no intention of altering the download page, and will not really be interested in trying to get a poster translated into 40+ languages in 10 days.

    I appreciate the sentiment, thanks.

    Cheers

    Hello All

    Minor changes to the poster suggested by people on the ubuntu-uk mailing list.

    The icon you click to bring up the dash, the one with the Ubuntu logo on is apparently known as the Big Freaking Button or BFB within Canonical. Those who consider that name to be a little informal call the icon the Ubuntu Button, so I've changed the poster to reflect the latter name.

    I've added a reference to the application lens and the use of the filters to get an overview of all the applications on the system. I might make another column in that table at the bottom later on when things settle down.

    The general advice about getting the poster more widely linked is to put it on spreadbuntu. When I tried that, it was flagged as spam, probably because of the external links. I'll try again, and then log a bug about it being classified as spam (apparently that is what you have to do!)

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8403291/1204-poster-4.pdf

    Above is the link for the poster that people can give out now

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8403291/1204-poster-4.odp

    Above is the link to the ODP file if you want to alter the poster, add or remove stuff or personalise it for your organisation.

    Mods: how do I get this on a sticky for when Precise gets let out?

    Two problems, Keith

    1. On side you refer to the Ubuntu Button, but on the right you explain that you need to click the Dash.
    2. When people come to the Ubuntu Forums or Ask Ubuntu, they'll be told to "click the Dash".

    Perhaps, where you point out the Ubuntu Button, add in parentheses, "(Dash)"?

    But I do like the other small changes you made.

    EDIT: There is a problem with the ODP file. Where you've used the Ubuntu Button (four places), the image is missing. Did you perhaps link the image instead of including it?

    Ask on Forum Feedback & Help.

    I still think this poster could be part of the official documentation. I think I shall ask on #ubuntu-docs.

    Keith, I've just spoken to someone on the #ubuntu-docs channel (where your work was described as "awesome work").

    I was advised that the best place to discuss documentation is on the documentation mailing list.

    Are you happy to go ahead with that, or would you prefer me to discuss it with the team?

    If we sticky the link, it will be in Installationss & Upgrades as this sub-forum gets archived, and a new U+1 (Quantal Quetzal) sub-forum will be opened, I'm not a dropbox user, but will it allow hundreds, if not thousands of downloads?

    Hello Paddy Landau, cariboo907 and all

    This is my second attempt to reply, something ate my previous more detailed reply. Probably 'fault between keyboard and monitor'.

    @Paddy: yes, well spotted with the inconsistent changes. I'll adopt the Ubuntu Button (Dash) format. Go ahead and make representations to Ubuntu Docs. I reached the conclusion that I'd rather just make stuff and see if people want it some time ago having been met with 'deafening silence' previously. The troublesome graphic is an SVG. What version of LO are you using? It won't work below 3.5.X. I think I'll change it for a PNG.

    @cariboo907: people do run Web sites off Dropbox, it is just an authentication layer on top of Amazon S3. However, I'd prefer to get the pdf and odp on spreadbuntu so there is a proper licence and a Canonical controlled URL. They seem to have their deflection shields set to maximum: my submissions are rejected as spam. I'll see what I can do by Wednesday evening UK timezone, then hopefully attach a spreadbuntu link here

    Cool, I'll do so. I'd love to have your latest version first; do you expect to release version 5 soon?

    Ah. I'm using 3.3.4. No problem, I'll just stick with the PDF.
