(unashamed Beastie Boys reference for the title of this post)

Well, we are steaming ahead to the Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon release, and I am hoping that each of you, my special Internet friends, are testing the beta and submitting your bugs. If not, read this.

In the meantime, it is also full-steam ahead in terms of organising release parties around the world. So far we have 34 parties organised, which is awesome, but we need more, more, more! Organising a party is simple – find a place to hold it (a university room, pub, house, restaurant etc), promote it and have a great time. You can find a simple guide to how to get started here and when you make the big-party-love happen, add it to this page.

So, lets have a look at the current party list (details of venues and dates here):
