  • Ubuntu 12.04 reaches EOL this month.
  • Lubuntu, Xubuntu 14.04 (all Ubuntu flavors other than the mother of all of them – Ubuntu) will also reach EOL this month.


  • We have been asked by John DeLalla if we would like to participate in the Water Wise Family Day on 15 April from 1000-1400. Because of the short notice and the date is the day before Easter it was decided to decline the offer.
  • There was some discussion about lowering the number of CLUG meetings to once a month because of the much lower attendance at the Wednesday meetings. This is a subject for future discussion.
