Ubuntu 14.04 Launch Party in Mumbai

This week, the LTS (long term support) version of Ubuntu will be released. The Ubutnu 14.04 LTS release date party is 20th Arpil 2014 (which was not fixed until recently). In some parts of the world it’ll release today, but in India the release party is hosted on Sunday, 20th April 2014 at DirectiPlex, Andheri, Mumbai. I never attended any meetups (barcamps?) or conference related Ubuntu. I’m looking forward to attend the launch party. The best part of the LTS release is they come after 3 regular releases and come with 5 years of lifespan support (server & desktop versions). Let’s celebrate the 14.04 LTS release of Ubuntu by attending the party, if you too are coming tweet me! & register at Ubuntu Loco Team portal.
