Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to invite others to participate, I was there alone, and struggled to eat all the food!
This year Ubuntu is turning 14.04 LTS, Trusty Tahr. I'm looking forward to the new version and I intend to host another InstallFest to celebrate. This year the LTS version will be released on or around 17th April 2014. That will probably mean it will be released on the 18th April NZT. Perhaps the InstallFest should be scheduled for the following weekend, say Saturday 19th April? I'll take this to Tangleball's weekly meeting next Tuesday, as a proposed date. The venue will need to be booked, but I'm hoping this will go ahead and be more successful than it was two years ago. This time I'm not spending as much on refreshments. If people want to come along and contribute something to eat and/or drink, that would be great. Tangleball will probably expect a gold coin donation each for the use of their premises too. It is still a few months away yet, but I wanted to get the idea out there early this time.

That is awesome i am new to Ubuntu and have jumped in head first and installed and so far have enjoyed the whole process-- my original aim was to do everything that i do on my windows 7 on my ubuntu 12.04---i am still suprised that more people don't go down the Ubuntu rabbit hole and install and reconfigure. Your idea sounds awesome i would be keen please keep me posted

Running Xunbuntu 12.04 at the moment, hope to try Linux Mint when the next long term version is released in April this year.
