switching to ubuntu -- monday, june 23, 2008

We've decided to switch operating systems this summer. Instead of debian, we'll be running ubuntu. It's very similar to debian (you probably won't notice the change -- we're still using xfce), but with a regular release cycle.

I've already converted a few of the lab machines to ubuntu (hardy heron). The next step is allspice, our file and email server.

Let us know (local-staff) if you have any questions.
