  1. Thank you!
    I just upgraded to 12.04 (from Mint12) yesterday and I’m loving it. Unity is great now!

  2. Congratulations on 5 years! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long since I enthusiastically downloaded the first issue 00. Thanks for your hard work and all the contributers. I am really liking this Ubuntu 12.04. I wish Canonical would have more full time employees so that development in Ubuntu happens faster.

  3. Team, Thanks for this new issue #60. Congratulations on 5 years! The new graphics: GIMP and Inkscape are really good. And to finishing, please, can you do a How-To about GNU/Linux Video Editor?.

    • I (Ronnie) will add that to my list of stuff to cover in the graphics section. I’m no video expert, but I can certainly show the basics of Kdenlive (KDE).

  4. Why is it that I can’t find this magazine on the software center? It should be easily accessible through there. I found one on the education section but it was issue #59, why isn’t it on the magazine section?

    • Issues 50 – 60 are on the Ubuntu Software Centre. Unfortunately I don’t get a section called ‘magazine’ to put the PDF under hence why it’s listed under ‘education’. If you can’t find it in the USC then do let me know and I’ll investigate.

  5. What’s happened to the full circle podcast??? Since Ed Hewitt departure (Unsure why), the podcast seemed to be dying a slow & painful death. Haven’t heard anything since the start of the year. Is this the end? It’s a great shame if this is the case…

    • Ed left due to getting a job with Porsche (and he now uses Windows). Robin and Dave are still in the game, as is Les, but they’re finding it difficult to get time together to record the podcast. It’s not dead, it’s just having a rest… 🙂
