Successful Ubuntu Hour in Cape Town held on the 11th of February

I should have blogged a while ago about this, but didn't get around to it till now...

I decided a few months ago that I wanted to have an Ubuntu hour in Cape Town, as most of them happen out in Stellenbosch, and I don't really get the time to drive out there. In true open source style, if you want something done you need to do it yourself (not in a negative sense though, it's more like a self-help style thing), so I started organising it.

I eventually decided to hold it in Rondebosch, as that seems somewhat central, and after asking the Ubuntu-ZA mailing list and setting up a Doodle, it seemed the best day was the 11th of Feb.

I was rather worried that I would be the only person who could make it, since a few people indicated that they might not be able to make it, but in the end we had 8 people there. In terms of numbers it was a success, but I did rather wish there were more non-techie people so that we could answer questions people might have about open source software and Ubuntu.
