Re: My story, and a big Thank-you
It's really a pleasure reading this. It's a confirmation of our work and
good news that keep us on the way. Everything you mention were the Lubuntu
targets (speed, simplicity, ultra-fast learning curve, easy-to-see)
specially using those (not so) old computers we have in a corner.
Anyway, your advertising over there is well apreciated! :)
Thanks so much.
