Dear friends,

On June 30th we meet in the European Parliament Free Software User Group (EPFSUG) again. We have invited enthusiasts and experts of the LoCo team from Ubuntu Belgium to learn more about their projects and activities, and to have a look at Ubuntu's new desktop and netbook environment "Unity". We'll also look into how to secure email exchange with strong encryption and discuss the latest developments with regards to the ongoing procurement of Windows 7 in the EU institutions.

You are all welcome to join.

What is Unity
Ubuntu and the Unity interface
Wouter Vandenneucker
Unity is a new desktop and netbook environment from Ubuntu which provides a complete, simple, touch-ready integration of applications and workflow. It looks a bit like iPad or Android interfaces and is designed for netbooks and related touch-based devices. It makes it fast and easy to access preferred applications. Wouter will show how.
