One and Only

I am the one and only nobody I'd rather be

I am the one and only you can't take that away from me

-- Chesney Hawkes, The One and Only

Just a short note: I have missed the exact date in the release madness for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, but a few days ago something important silently happened: All supported Ubuntu releases are now shipping with LibreOffice by default, as trusty old Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) reached its end of support for the desktop. So we now have these supported releases:

  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) with LibreOffice 3.5
  • Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) with LibreOffice 3.6
  • Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) with LibreOffice 4.0
  • and upcoming: Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) with LibreOffice 4.1
Also the following releases (which are not supported anymore) have been done in addition:
  • Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) with LibreOffice 3.3
  • Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) with LibreOffice 3.4
Looking back in time at the angstridden, not-acting-but-reacting excitement of the early days and comparing it with the way we are really pushing the envelope now, we have really come a long way, improving with every step on the way. Well worth a celebration with one of the most cheesy 1990ies hits ever - Thanks to everyone, who was and is part of this!
