Xubuntu in *urgent* need of testers

October 9, 2007 at 12:15 pm | Posted in xubuntu | 8 Comments

As mentioned on Xubuntu.org, the Xubuntu development team is in a great need for testers of the latest version of Xubuntu, 7.10 (the Gutsy Gibbon). Being the good Xubuntu citizen that I am, I intend to spread this message you any potential testers (you) so the Xubuntu team is not flooded with bug reports after the final version is released.

Bugs, if any, are most likely to be small bugs anyway, so if you intend to upgrade to Gutsy once it is released, it might be a better idea to do so now in order to improve the quality of your favourite Linux distribution.

Convinced? Go and download the latest build, burn it onto a CD and install it (or try running it into a virtual machine if you don’t want to take a risk) and report your bugs on Launchpad!

The Xubuntu developers are counting on you🙂
