Happy Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day 2017!

Today is Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day, a chance for everyone to come together to thank those in the community who we feel deserve recognition for their hard work. This year has been incredibly productive for the Ubuntu Community and we at Entroware are excited by the direction Ubuntu is heading in and the changes that have been made. We would like to thank the entire community for all of their hard work over the past year and, particularly, over the past 6 months. Specifically, we would like to thank:

The Ubuntu Desktop team for the fast and effective switchover to Gnome. Changing desktop environments can present challenges, especially whilst aiming to retain a fluid transition in user experience. Fortunately, the Ubuntu Desktop team managed to switch us over to Gnome, not only quickly, but seamlessly.

The Ubuntu MATE team for providing a solid alternative, especially for users who are new to Linux. Ubuntu MATE's "retrospective future" approach has stood the test of time since we first started shipping it in 2015 and has proven itself to be popular amongst users switching from proprietary operating systems to Linux. Ubuntu MATE has consistently delivered stability and familiarity to an important part of our customer base.

The Snap team for their hard work in providing an excellent, innovative packaging system and snapping the most popular Linux software. The Snap team have really helped to streamline software installation and updates for new users and retain consistency across distributions.

Thank you, once again, to the Ubuntu Community for a great year.

The Entroware Team
