We, had the Precise Pangolin party today at Shroma Palace, Dhanmondi, Dhaka. It was the official Ubuntu 12.04 release party of Ubuntu Bangladesh LoCo team. You must be surprised – why on earth the release party was delayed two weeks! Well … we have some political unrest situations here in Bangladesh, which forced us to arrange the party after two weeks of the actual release date.
We’re almost 10 people there. Well… theoretically there should be more than 50 people, at least our facebook event announcement page showed that kind of figure. But unfortunately there are less than that. In the evening we have some light storm (locally known as the Kalboishakhi) out there, may be that is the reason behind that low scoring crowd.
We had fun at the party. We had all the distros (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Lubuntu and even Ubuntu Studio) for distributing. We had one guy who brought a laptop with a Fedora sticker on it, which actually was running on Arch-Linux and he took the Ubuntu iso for testing! We enjoyed the delicious meal – Chicken Shorma with French fries and cold beverages. We had two guys wearing Ubuntu t-shirts.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the party! Here are some party Pics. More pictures can be found here.
