Happy New Year!

Wow. 2008 What a year it has been. It has been a year of change, opportunity, some sad goodbyes and some bright greetings. This year I have really leaned on my family and friends for support and every one of you came through. You know who you are, and I love you all.

Here comes 2009. This is an important year for us all. New Year is always a time for reflection, and I think back to the incredible progress we have all made in the Open Source and Free Software world. Ten years ago I could barely get a graphical interface to work in Linux, and just look at where we are today. But this year we need to knock the ball out of the park. We are teetering on the edge of great things, and 2009 holds the opportunity for us all to reach those heady heights. A few weeks back I talked about our ethos and it is this ethos that is going to continue to help us make 2009 another great year for Ubuntu and Open Source and Free Software.

Wherever you are, have a happy and safe New Year. Salut!

    I am an avid follower of your blog and would like your help in promoting my similar blog.

    http://ubuntuextreme.blogspot.com/ started when I realised I was posting a lot on ubuntuforums.org and writing numerous howto’s. I realised that it would be useful for me to consolidate all of my posts into one useful blog.

    Please have a look, and help me get on my feet with it! If you would like help me to provide assistance with posts, I would be glad to help. While I am not the most blog-savvy, I have a fair knowledge of Ubuntu.

    Happy New Year!

    Best
