Previously as an effort to promote Ubuntu and Free Software, Canonical has made pre-pressed CD/DVD available for LoCo team to be distributed during release party or promo events.
But starting from Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail), pre-pressed Ubuntu CD/DVD will only be made available only for LTS release (the next one will be 14.04 LTS ) from this point forward. This is in-line with Canonical policy to only concentrate on supporting Ubuntu LTS.
In the mean time, Canonical will continue to provide pre-pressed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS CD/DVD to Ubuntu LoCo until 14.04 LTS release in 2014.

e-jat – the head honcho of #ubuntu-my loco attended Ubuntu Developer Summit, held in Orlando, Florida. Here are some photos of e-jat (a.k.a fenris)
I hope that with the e-jat as representative, #ubuntu-my will flourished and will be better recognized internationally….
Ubuntu Friendly is an initiative by Ubuntu community to ensure that desktops, laptops, netbooks are compatible with Ubuntu, hence “Ubuntu-friendly”. Ubuntu-Friendly depends on community participation to verify whether the hardware fully or partially supports Ubuntu, and rate its usability based on the core components tested.
When will it be available?
Ubuntu-Friendly will be available and integrated right into Ubuntu 11.10. Early adopters and testers can have access to it by Ubuntu 11.10 Oneric Beta 2 due to be released in mid-September.
The tool used for hardware testing is “Checkbox” which is accessible from the Live CD, under System Testing menu.
p/s: Visit Ubuntu Friendly page on Ubuntu Wiki, for more information.
Kudos to the Ubuntu community for coming up with this project, it’ll make life more easier in finding computers that fully support Ubuntu hardware!
